RAID5 Scaling Objective: Show Linear Scaling of extremesan in RAID 5 sets under increasing load Config: 4 volumes of 4 drive RAID 5, 4 initiators, each with 2 connections. Sequential Read/Write test. Results: Max theoretical Write throughput =4*3*40=480 MB/s Max theoretical Read throughput =4*3*60=720 MB/s Results: Write: 96% scaling at 460 MB/s Read: 93% scaling at 672 MB/s 1 RAID5 Scaling: RAID 5 Configuration; 4 Volumes, 4 Drives Port 0, 1 Vol. A DR. 0 DR. 1 Gigabit Switch Port 2, 3 Port 4, 5 Target 0 Target 1 Target 2 Vol. B Vol. C RAID5 RAID5 RAID5 DR. 4 DR. 5 DR. 8 DR. 9 DR. 12 DR. 2 DR. 3 DR. 6 DR. 7 DR.10 DR.11 DR. 13 Port 6, 7 Target 3 Vol. D RAID5 DR. 14 DR. 15 extremesan 2 RAID 5 Sequential Write - 4 Initiators - 4 Targets 4wide Volume - 2 Connections Throughput (MB/s) B 4K 16K 32K 64K 128K 256K 512K 1M Transfer Size 1 LUN 2 LUNs 3 LUNs 4 LUNs Fig. 1- RAID5 Scaling; Write Performance 3 RAID 5 Sequential Read - 4 Initiators - 4 Targets 4wide Volume - 2 Connections Throughput (MB/s) B 4K 16K 32K 64K 128K 256K 512K 1M Transfer Size 1 LUN 2 LUNs 3 LUNs 4 LUNs Fig. 2- RAID5 Scaling; Read Performance 4 RAID0 Scaling (1) Objective: Show Linear Scaling of extremesan in RAID 0 sets under increasing load Config: 4 volumes of 4 drives RAID 0, 4 initiators, each with 2 connections.
