Transform Your Infrastructure With Storage Analytics

742

Published on

Attend this informative Webtech session to learn how to leverage storage analytics to transform your storage infrastructure into a business enabler. Storage analytics helps you to manage your storage environment beyond the operational view to a business centric view where storage resources can become strategic assets to drive storage service level management for business applications. View this WebTech to learn: Tips and tricks to streamline storage performance monitoring across your Hitachi environment. Establish storage service level management by defining and enforcing performance and capacity objectives for key business applications. Create storage service level management reports that satisfy the needs of multiple IT stakeholders (i.e. CIO, architect, administrator). For more information on controlling costs of sprawling storage with storage analytics white paper: http://www.hds.com/assets/pdf/hitachi-white-paper-control-costs-and-sprawling-storage-with-storage-analytics.pdf

Transcript of "Transform Your Infrastructure With Storage Analytics"

  1. 1. STORAGE ANALYTICS BRETT HESTERBERG, TECHNICAL PRODUCT MANAGER OJAY BAHRA, TECHNICAL PRODUCT MANAGER RICHARD JEW, SENIOR PRODUCT MARKETING MANAGER AUGUST 8, 2012
  2. 2. WEBTECH EDUCATIONAL SERIES Storage Analytics Attend this WebTech session to learn how to leverage storage analytics to transform your storage infrastructure into a business enabler. Storage analytics help you to manage your storage environment beyond the operational view to a business-centric view where storage resources can become strategic assets to drive storage service level management for business applications. Attend this WebTech to learn • Tips and tricks to streamline storage performance monitoring across your Hitachi environment • Establish storage service level management by defining and enforcing performance and capacity objectives for key business applications • Create storage service level management reports that satisfy the needs of multiple IT stakeholders (i.e., CIO, architect, administrator)
  3. 3. STORAGE ANALYTICS Enable customers to transform visualizing a data center from an operational view to more strategic and business-centric view where elements are measured, correlated, trended and strategized.
  4. 4. STORAGE ANALYTICS DASHBOARD Which applications miss their SLAs? Which applications are at risk?
  5. 5. STORAGE ANALYTICS VALUE PROPOSITION Data Center Visibility SLO Compliance Capacity Planning End-to-End Performance Analysis Performance Troubleshooting and Tuning Dashboard of application-centric views of storage (supply and demand) to minimize OPEX Monitor application service level objectives (SLO) for compliance Conduct intelligent capacity planning based on historical trends to reduce future CAPEX Performance analysis from application to logical storage devices Detailed storage system performance reporting and analysis Business and consumer view of applications (demand) Application SLO monitoring Standard reports to identify underutilized and overutilized resources Statistical analysis across applications, servers, switches and storage systems Storage system analysis for performance tuning Storage array view (supply) SLO violation investigation Historical capacity trending for applications Integration with detailed performance reporting for deeper analysis Analysis of storage pool allocation and utilization

  9. 9. HITACHI TUNING MANAGER: PERFORMANCE FIRST AID Can filter volumes for analysis To filter volumes, launch Wizard after select the volumes Select Logical Group (or Host) To filter volumes, launch Wizard after select the volumes
  10. 10. HITACHI TUNING MANAGER: TOP PERFORMANCE TIPS  Look at longer historical trend first ‒ Identify troubled spots by looking at longer period of trend (for example, 7 days of hourly data, 24 hours of minute data)  Focus on trouble area with finer granularity ‒ After identifying trouble areas, zoom into those time periods with finer granularity (minute level)  For response time-centric applications such as online transaction processing ‒ You want low utilization to ensure CPU cycle availability ‒ You want low Q-depth to ensure no wait time  For throughput-centric application such as backups ‒ You want high utilization to ensure maximum throughput ‒ You want high Q-depth to let CPU manage queues smarter
  11. 11. HITACHI TUNING MANAGER TOP PERFORMANCE TIPS  Workflow from inside to outside ‒ Start at the I/O response time for the server or device reporting the problem ‒ In case the value differs significantly from the base value, investigate  High cache write pending percentage causing inflow control  High front-end processor (CHA) or MP (VSP) utilization causing port congestion  High back-end processor (DKA) or MP (VSP) utilization causing delays in reading from or writing to disk  High parity group utilization causing delays in reading from or writing to disk in that parity group
  12. 12. SERVICE LEVEL COMPLIANCE  Monitor service level objectives (SLO) for applications ‒ SLO is a measurement of performance for a group of storage volumes ‒ HCmD constantly monitors the mission-critical applications against their SLO and alerts users if it goes out of compliance ‒ HCmD provides dashboard summary of the current SLO violation and as well as its history for mission-critical application.  Investigate service level violations ‒ Global dashboard for near real-time monitoring of application SLO status ‒ Drill down to SLO investigation unit to help quickly identify potential causes of SLO violation  Realize application service level objectives – Average storage response time ‒ Total IOPS
  13. 13. MONITOR SERVICE LEVEL OBJECTIVES  Support for service level objectives ‒ Application SLOs ‒ Storage response time ‒ Total IOPS ‒ Storage system and host SLO ‒ Cache write pending percentage ‒ DP pool overprovisioning ratio ‒ DP pool risk ratio ‒ DP pool used percentage ‒ Host file system used percentage ‒ Parity group busy percentage ‒ Port busy percentage Highlighted on Dashboard

  15. 15. PINPOINT VOLUME UTILIZATION REPORTING Scenario 1. Pool 4 and 16 on my VSP are running my mission-critical workload. I want to keep a close eye on these pools and the hot volumes in it to make sure nothing gets overly busy 2. I want to save this report so I can quickly get to it again and again 3. I want to generate this report from the CLI from time to time because I prefer the command prompt and I can do further analysis with the CSV output
  16. 16. HITACHI COMMAND DIRECTOR DATA FLOW Gather Raw Configuration and Performance Data Correlate Discovered Data With Business Metadata Massage, Aggregate Raw Data Into SLO Compliance Metrics Generate Dashboard, Business Views and Reports Application Volume Function: HR Customer: ACME SLO: Oracle (prod) Type : Oracle
