Performance with NPIV

  • 1.  Performance with NPIV

    I know that the portperfshow command is used for display the online performance of the physical ports.
    But, I use NPIV in two physical ports . Then, how can I monitor the throughput for these port ? Is there any tool for this ?
    My fabric version is 7.0.0b
    Please, provide me any clues according your experience.

    In your current configuration you can only use 3rd party tools - disk array based perf stats, server based perf stats, or something SAN based but very expensive like Virtual Instruments.

    Starting from FOS 7.2 there is a Flow Vision component and I think it can monitor NPIV performance for you. You will also need to have BNA.
