We are actually testing Riverbed Steelheads in order to accelerate replication using SnapMirror between two sites.
The distance ist 100km between the sites. Connection: 150Mbit MPLS Network
Systems: FAS6080 (Source) and FAS3160 (Destination) with ONTAP 7.3.4
The SnapMirror is configured as follows (snapmirror.conf):
FAS6080 = multi (10.128.85.43,10.128.136.15) (10.128.33.68,10.128.136.15)
FAS6080:/vol/M0P_DB/sapdata FAS3160:/vol/sm_M0P_DB_dbp_test/sapdata kbs=15360,wsize=4194304 15 2,6,10,14,18,22 * *
And the network on the NetApp:
mvif: flags=0xa2d08863 mtu 1500 ether 02:a0:98:0f:30:fe (Enabled virtual interface)
mvif-1604: flags=0x6948863 mtu 1500 inet 10.128.85.43 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 10.128.85.255 partner mvif-1604 (not in use) ether 02:a0:98:0f:30:fe (Enabled virtual interface)
mvif-1610:flags=0x6948863 mtu 1500 inet 10.128.33.68 netmask 0xffffffc0 broadcast 10.128.33.127 partner mvif-1610 (not in use) ether 02:a0:98:0f:30:fe (Enabled virtual interface)
Has anyone an idea if there is a special configuration that I forgot in order to optimize the replication?
The problem ist I had 8Mb/s replication speed before, and 16Mb/s now... Peek is 20! That's not enough and I can't find out where it comes from...
Thanks in advance for your help!
