Re: Fiber Channel Performance

I/O performance is relevant only on the server (hba) and on the array or other device side(tape?). It is irrelevant in a fabric - only throughput matters there. Moreover companies usually don't publish info on hba i/o performance and focus on publishing array i/o perf. It's enough to troubleshoot most of the problems.BCFP,BCSD,BCSM

Re: Fiber Channel Performance

I guess I am trying to figure out, if I upgrade from the 2Gb/s fabric I have to a 4 or 8, would I acutally see that benefit or is it just what's hot right now?
