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

    I just read through the entire chapter but still find nothing on the storage port queue 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
