Questions regarding VNX Block threshold values for LUN and Port

Hello,

What are the ideal warning and critical thresholds defined for VNX Block storage LUNs and Ports? We would like to know the threshold values for following metrics

LUN total throughput

LUN total IOPS

Port total throughput

Port total IOPS

Thanks!

Re: Questions regarding VNX Block threshold values for LUN and Port

VNX does not have performance threshold alerts.

If you're looking what the specifications for the VNX, these are available on the Dell EMC Support by Product web site.

The Ports throughout and bandwidth are determined by the speed of the what the port is set to. For example, the typical Fiber Channel port using the 8Gb SFP supports about 800MB/s maximum and with protocol overhead is more like 720MB/s.

LUN IOPS and bandwidth is determined by the configuration used to create LUNs - the number of disks, the speed of the disks, the type of the disks (SSD, SAS, NL-SAS).

If you want active monitoring, then you'll need something like the Dell EMC Monitoring and Reporting application.
