Issue

  • A single server in a cluster, such as a hypervisor of an ESX cluster, or SQL server, experiences slower throughput running the same workload, and ONTAP doesn't show an issue with latency.
  • Example: Running dd gets worse throughput on the poor performing server1 compared to server2:
server1:~# dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt1/path1/testfilegk bs=1G count=1 oflag=dsync
1+0 records in
1+0 records out
1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB, 1.0 GiB) copied, 20.047 s, 53.6 MB/s

server2:~# dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt1/path1/testfilegk bs=1G count=1 oflag=dsync
1+0 records in
1+0 records out
1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB, 1.0 GiB) copied, 2.554 s, 420 MB/s
