VNX Unified Storage Performance Workshop (MR-1CP-VNXP)


Who should attend

This course is intended for individuals who are responsible for architecting and implementing VNX Unified solutions, as well as diagnosing and troubleshooting VNX Unified performance issues.


To understand the content and successfully complete this course, a student must have a suitable knowledgebase/skill set. The student must have an understanding of:

  • VNX Unified architecture and features
  • IP Networking
  • Block and File storage configuration and provisioning

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Define VNX Unified performance using metrics and workload analysis
  • Use Block and File performance tools for analysis and troubleshooting
  • Describe the performance implications regarding different disk and RAID types
  • Identify File-related performance considerations including AVM functionality
  • Identify Block-related performance considerations including FAST and FAST cache
  • Determine the impact of using File features such as SnapSure, Replicator, and Data Deduplication
  • Explain the performance considerations when using SnapView and Clones
  • Describe the impact in using SAN Copy and MirrorView on an application

Course Content

This Expert level course provides a thorough exposure to performance on the VNX Unified Storage platform. Focus areas include the use of Unisphere Analyzer, Navisphere Secure CLI, and File server_stats to gather performance statistics from the VNX Unified, and the analysis of those performance statistics. Other topics include gathering performance statistics utilizing different workload patterns, RAID and disk types. The performance implications of using Block Replication Software (SnapView, MirrorView and SAN Copy) and File-related Features (SnapSure, Data Deduplication, and Replicator) are covered in detail. The course includes extensive hands on lab exercises. This course currently supports VNX Block OE R31.5 and File OE 7.0.35
