Lab Powered by vSphere OpenFiler And NFS – A view from Veeam Monitor

I have a lab setup that I have been playing with which includes openfiler.

I have a Dell 2950 connected via SCSI to a Dell MD1000 with 14 10k SAS drives ( 1 spare)

A Cisco 3750

And a Dell 2950 running a Server 2008 R2 VM, running IO Meter.

Here are some results.

Settings in IO meter are 32K 100 Read on two drives, and 32K 0 and 0 on the other two.

We’ll discuss design at
