Networker Storage Node Sizing the HW

How do I size a Networker Storage Node?

I found no recommendation in the documents.

The sizing for the internal PCI bus and Network are clear, but what about CPU and Memory?

Re: Networker Storage Node Sizing the HW

This entirely depends on your architecture used and specs you expect.  There is straight answer to that and when it comes to sizing of that kind, you will have to rely on HW tuning docs and not software application one. With that said, once upon the time we had few discussions here about oldish formulas for both CPU and memory, but I can't say how relevant they are nowadays (as those were focussed on older architectures on SPARC machines for example).

Hi,

The best way is to contact your "Account Manager" and ask to engage the "Solution Architect" in order to provide the design

Re: Networker Storage Node Sizing the HW

Hi,

You can find a couple of interesting docs in Powerlink: Performance Optimization Planning Guide (P/N 300-013-559) and IOPS Requirements for the Networker Server (P/N 300-012-592). The second one is referred to NW Server, but I think you can apply some rules for your Storage Node.

Claudio
