Interestingly, we also found the exact same problems with Nimble: 80MB/s restore speed with VAAI Block Zero ON. 200MB/s with it OFF.dellock6 wrote:Guys, just to try and isolate the problems, let me recap:
PGITDept: Equallogic (problems) + Nimble
Yizhar: Equallogic (problems) + 3Par, (no difference)
@PGITDept, I don't understand in your posts if you also tried your tests against the Nimble storage, and if the vaai on/off affects your restores. I'm going to try this week the same tests against ly HP StoreVirtual VSA cluster, I'll let you know the results. *If* numbers will stay the same regardless of VAAI status, and if the Nimble storage is going to perform the same, it would maybe mean it's an EQL problem more than VAAI libraries.
You both have the latest firmware revision on EQL?
We're not on the latest EQL firmware, we're on 6.0.2. Nimble we're on 1.4.7.
