Re: DART 5.6.49.3 with 2xdatamover- how configure nics and devices for fast response in CIFS

Jump to solution

yesterday, following steps to configure LACP on my existing NAS, in order to get more performance.

from server_2 datamover my ports were connected to a cisco 3560g switch.

firts before changes, i have a CIFS server with a VDM, with a fsn device like this (cge0-primary, cge1-standby)

i test my conection tranfering  a cd image of 725 Megas of size, and the transfer were made in 1:15 minutos

from a client computer to a share folder

then i reconfigure the conection, to LACP with and interface like this (lacp01=cge0,cge1,cge2), and configuring the switch with

a etherchannel lacp group1 (including 3 ports, to connect cge0,cge1,cgd2).

With all reconfigure done.

i made the same tranfers test, but it takes de same time, !!!!! whats the reason, or is there something wrong.

i spect at least minize the tranfer to 30 seconds. but unfortunately it was not so 

any idea.

you have one tcp connection, meaning you are only using one of those 1G lanes.  Try the same test with 3 different workstations.
