Storage data sample rate
The tool supports 5 minutes
sample rate for storage and SAN devices except:
- IBM Storwize/FlashSystem/SVC, Lenovo V Series: 10 minutes can be set up, it is useful especially for storage with thousands of volumes which are not able to provide all data within 5 minutes.
You can configure it in the storage properties.
When you increase to 10 minute then you must kill svcperf.pl process running for that storage.
- IBM XIV, A9K: they use 10 minutes sample rate as default
- Brocade Network Advisor(BNA): it uses 10 minutes sample rate as default
