I have redundant 8G DCX SAN Directors. On Network Advisor Top Port Traffic view, I have two IBM SVC nodes that consistently show as red (with Rx traffic rates over 100MB/s). In fact, all 8 ports of that IO Group are consistently listed in the top ports, in either red, yellow or orange. What can I do to alleviate the traffic jam and do I have a real problem or is 100MB/s not really an issue?
As per the the info provided below;
SFP speed is 8Gbps so it can support to a max of 800 MB/s
So when u say that the RX is 100 MB/sec it is very much okay. it is merely 10 % utilized, it can go upto 75 % of the actual through put.
The above comments are dependant on the speed of other end device even
You have an optio to Change the threshold values on the SAN Dashboard of BNA.
