  • ONTAP 9.8
  • Fpolicy

Answer

  • Netapp dramatically improved Fpolicy performance in 9.8 and above releases by implementing a new Shared Memory Implementation for Fpolicy
  • This change improved internal ONTAP Fpolicy performance by allowing ONTAP to be able to process more inbound IOPS processing when Fpolicy is enabled
  • When Fpolicy is enabled, this new implementation helps to avoid performance degradation for NFS and CIFS workloads both on throughput and latency
    • Due to these improvements it's important to ensure FPolicy servers are properly sized for your environment
    • Verify before upgrading post 9.8 that your systems do not experience frequent EAGAINS
