Eyeglass Performance Auditor (coming soon)

The Performance Auditor module simplifies answering tough performance questions for Scale out NAS. “Why is the NAS slow today?”

 

Scale out NAS introduces challenges to monitor performance across all nodes in a cluster.  User file IO requests can move between nodes, busy file system paths may not be balanced and user subnets can cause unbalanced IO across the cluster.  When a performance issue popups up you need answers fast.

 

Problem Statement:

  1. Users questions "The NAS is slow today"

  2. Applications transactions are not normal

  3. Long login times reported by users

 

The Eyeglass module provides real-time file IO view of Isilon nodes  to simplify root cause of performance impacts, assessing changes needed to optimize performance and debugging user, network and application performance.

  1. Answer user questions about performance.

    1. Why is the NAS slow?

    2. My applications are not processing transactions normally

    3. Why is login taking forever today?

  2. Answer questions about your cluster load balancing configuration 

  3. Root cause business impacting performance issues 

Key Features 

  1. Real time view of node by node user and application IO

  2. Calculates node impact by analyzing user file IO behavior and summarizes node impact visually

  3. Computes a summary of key performance indicators per Isilon node: 

    1. Top Users

    2. Top File System paths

    3. Top Subnets

    4. Read/Write ratio by path
