NetApp adopts Microsoft’s Business-to-Customer (B2C) Identity Management
Effective December 3 - NetApp adopts Microsoft’s Business-to-Customer (B2C) identity management to simplify and provide secure access to NetApp resources. For accounts that did not pre-register (prior to Dec 3) access to your NetApp data may take up to 1 hour as your legacy NSS ID is synchronized to the new B2C identity.

  • ONTAP 9
  • TCP/UDP

Answer

  • Yes, both UDP and TCP traffic contributes to the 100,000 connection limit per node.
    • Connection ID (CID) limit is 100K
    • UDP is considered stateless, but ONTAP holds an internal "connection-id" open for 2 minutes in case another call comes in on the same ip/port combination
    • UDP CIDs have a lifecycle of at least 4 seconds, but no more than 60 seconds, if idle
    • When 95% of 100K connection limit is breached, ONTAP begins deleting the Least Recently Used (LRU) UDP CID
    • If new connections outpace the deletion rate, new UDP and TCP connections may see intermittent un-responsiveness
