ONTAP 9

Issue

  • The LAG (Link Aggregation Group/IFGRP) is not evenly transmitting traffic across the participating ports evenly when using IP based distribution.
  • Low throughput after ONTAP upgrade from 9.1 to 9.7.
  • "system node run -node <nodename> -command ifstat -a" shows unequal load distribution across the participating ports in the TRANSMIT section.
