Last Modified: 2013-12-06
What is the maximum Storage Port Queue Request Count for HSV210 controllers on a standard 8 port config EVA 8000?  I need this value to plug into the VMware and HP referenced Qlogic Execution throttle equation which statest this value should be greater than [(# of Storage Ports) * (Port Max Queue Count)] / [HBAs on all Hosts accessing EVA].

Google has not beed a lot of help on this one. I think you;ll need to put that question to HP Support.

Tunable parameters should be listed under the host and storage system rules chapter 3 of HP's SAN design guide found at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DocumentIndex.jsp?contentType=SupportManual&lang=en&cc=us&docIndexId=64179&taskId=101&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=470490

I just read through the entire chapter but still find nothing on the storage port queue max...to be clear, I don't need to change this value, I just need to know what the standard/default/recommended/current value is for an EVA 8000 to plug into this equation referenced in HP, Qlogic and VMware documentation:

[(# of Storage Ports) * (Port Max Queue Count)] / [HBAs on all Hosts accessing EVA]  < = Qlogic BIOS Execution Throttle setting
