Due to possible budget cuts, I am looking at finding alternatives to the Netapp
filers we currently have. Obviously, one of the key drivers is the performance
required for our specific application.
On https://www.fotoloog.org/fs.png you can see the load on our main filer. The
key question I have is: looking at that graph, do you think it is worthwhile
looking into Samba further as a possible replacement for the filer cifs
I am still in the process of running netapps stats command to get insight in
the raw disk i/o, which will possibly de the deciding factor. Will post as soon
as I have that info.
I was thinking RAID6 Areca cards (2 GB of NVRAM/BBU), quad Xeon servers with 16
GB of RAM and 'enterprise' sata disks (though possibly avoid raptors due to
relatively low capacity).
