Description

This article describes on how to identify misalignment over NFS on the storage system.

Misalignment of I/O is possible over LUNs and NFS mounts (using virtualization products). 

At a basic level, misalignment is when a host improperly lays blocks on the storage system, which causes partial writes.

For more information on misaligned I/O, see the following links.
