SAN Health 4 Report

Hello,

 

I run the report through SAN Health 4, and read..

"SFP Capable Of-100,200,400_MB/s and PortSpeed 4 Gbps

 

what it means, I can go up to 200MB/s ? Instead with PortSpeed 8Gbps i have 400MB/s

 

Thanks

100,200,400 = 4G SFP

200,400,800 = 8G SFP+

 

from command line, "sfpshow" command can you check the type of SFP is inserted in the port in question.

Hi Antonio,

 

I definitely SFP, I do not understand when the sect connection connector 100, 200 or 400 MB / s as I can control.
I have a SAN with SSD in RAID 5 5 connected to FC and does not exceed 200MB / s write or read. Host has to 8GB HBAs, and FC SAN 8GB 4GB (AN)
Should go to at least 340MB / s do not understand

 

Tanks very much

@NexusXp

 

you have 4Gb SFP and not 8GB SFP+,

 

for this reason the switch port work at max. 4GB, independent from HBA or Storage port Speed.

Hi,

 

my question is, possible that the port on switch is limited to 200MB/s ? when port use 100 o 200 MB/s ?

why i have 1 san Dell with 5 SSD in Raid 5, max speed on the volume is 210 MB/s

 

Thanks

Hello Nexus,

 

Could you try logging into the switch from command line with username admin and post output from this command:

 

switchshow

 

 

That might help us determine the issue.
