I've been attempting to get get some baseline performance numbers for my san. That is proving to be more difficult that I thought. I've been given some tools by netapp to capture the actual performance which give me diskpersec and diskbytesperser. It's also been suggested that I use iometer to get a baseline of the performance.
I've used both, and the numbers between the two programs arent exactly matching up.
So I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or could point me to some industry standard methodologoes for
1. Measuring Fibre SAN max performance to match up against the published maximum performance numbers.
It's a dell AX100. Tools for performing this test would be helpful too.
2. Measuring actual load on the san during production hours.
The tool I have from NetApp I think is theirs, I'd like to verify their numbers.
I'm interested in the tools to perform those test, but really need to know the methodologies and real world examples.
