Demo: Identifying ISL contention in your SAN fabric

Are Your ISL's Oversubscribed?

Cover

When the Inter-switch Links (ISLs) in a given SAN do not have enough lanes to keep traffic flowing smoothly, it can cause congestion and result in buffer credit shortages, which can then lead to performance delays.

In this instructive demo, Director of Technical Services at IntelliMagic Brett Allison shows you how to identify ISL contention and how adding additional ISLs can spread out the load and reduce the utilization on your SAN fabric.

Tune in to see how he identified a problem with these links and then compares the utilization and buffer credit shortages/sec after an additional ISL was added.
