Virtual Matrix Architecture Max Capacity: Two BBU modules are required for four drive enclosures up to eight BBU modules support up to 16 drive enclosures in one storage bay.

Replacement with a smaller capacity memory requires that the system be brought offline and reinitialized before PermaCache will function. They enable the creation of storage management applications that don t have to understand the management details of each piece within the total storage smmetrix.

Vault devices require 5 GB of space. Change Font — Allows you to change font. Product proxuct on these software options are available on the EMC Powerlink website at: Refer to Figure 76 on page Profuct some areas, such as the first two items in the group labeled 4 in the figure, you can move among the items using either Tab or the arrow keys.

Power System – check power cables — Displays the Cables tab.

Moving the cursor slowly over this type of window usually displays symmeetrix pop-up window showing the valid range. Symmetrix Optimizer on page contains additional information. Notify me of new posts by email.


The Symmetrix features described in this section allow high global memory hit ratios and less processing overhead, thus reducing response time and improving throughput.

The DMSP tries to achieve two goals: Pressing U updates the browser. SymmWin menu bar To select a menu item, click it, or press ALT simultaneously with the letter that is underlined on the menu.

The ability to control a device s read priority is delivered using eymmetrix following mechanisms: When this occurs between devices with heterogeneous disk geometries, there will be a difference between the disk geometry written in the label on the target which was copied from the source and the disk geometry symetrix is presented to the target host by the DMX-4 or DMX EMC Producr DMX-4 Product Guide.

When writing to a concatenated volume, the first slice of a physical disk drive is filled, then the second, and so on, to subsequent physical drives. The following services are provided 24×7 by SWMB: Published December, EMC believes the information in this publication is accurate as of its publication date.

Save to file — Saves the current list. Wide striping allows the data to be spread evenly across a broad pool. In a highly scalable component and cabinet configuration, the DMX-4 has the capacity, connectivity, and throughput to handle a wide range of high-end storage applications. In older code levels, once the file gjide for each log was reached, the oldest file was deleted.

Contact your local EMC Sales Representative for specifics on support and implementation of these tools. If a global memory director requires online replacement, PermaCache is unaffected, provided that the replacement board contains the same amount or greater of global memory.

Click and drag the line. Data records R1 through Rn All remaining records on a track are data records. An encoded three-bit identifier for the logical unit of a SCSI device. Copy-paste — Allows you to copy then paste information.

Therefore, when configuring such a metavolume, be careful to minimize wasted space. A timer starts every time SymmWin activity stops. Symmetrix Enginuity permits PermaCache configurations to be changed while the Symmetrix system is online to the host. For example, an administrator might find that a migration result unexpectedly fails an existing business rule pdoduct one or several of the volumes in the migration should not reside in the high-capacity lower performance location.

The Symmetrix DMX-4 lroduct up to 12 channel directors.

Channel attachments on page 93 contains a more detailed discussion of channel attachment options. Figure 91 Gguide — Cable There are three buttons on this tab: Enginuity uses an intelligent algorithm attuned to real-life workloads and dynamic usage patterns which will detect sequences quickly, but prefetch only when the probability of increasing global memory hits is high.
