1 hIOmon Overview (9/01) © 2001 hyperI/O LLC. 1 hyperI/O LLC Arapahoe Avenue, Suite 100 Boulder, CO How fast are your files? hIOmon Overview Tom West Doc Nbr: HMP (September 2001)

2 hIOmon Overview (9/01) © 2001 hyperI/O LLC. 2 More about hIOmon Looking for answers – how hIOmon can help Presentation Outline So whats the problem?

3 hIOmon Overview (9/01) © 2001 hyperI/O LLC. 3 More Productivity More Information More Profit More Time Benefits of Improved Performance: So how do you gain better performance? Better Performance Focus upon Performance

4 hIOmon Overview (9/01) © 2001 hyperI/O LLC. 4 Faster: processors (>1GHz, SMP, x-Way) busses (PCI-X, InfiniBand) Faster computer hardware But how much performance have you actually gained? - and whats the actual Return-On-Investment (ROI)? (Moores Law: 2x every 18 months) NAS, SAN, DAFS, iSCSI Storage I/O connections: Storage I/O interfaces: SCSI, FC, 10GbE, VIA Computer hardware keeps getting Faster

5 hIOmon Overview (9/01) © 2001 hyperI/O LLC. 5 Storage capacity deployed How do you get and manage better storage performance, especially with more and more storage capacity? Individual storage device capacity keeps doubling (even faster than Moores Law) Storage device capacity Digital data growth: % / year >50% capital investment Managing the storage costs more than the storage itself Storage is a major component of computer systems The explosive growth of Storage

6 hIOmon Overview (9/01) © 2001 hyperI/O LLC. 6 There is an enormous gulf between the performance capabilities of the faster computer hardware (particularly processors) and … the performance capabilities of storage:A Performance Predicament Waiting, waiting, waiting … for your Data

7 hIOmon Overview (9/01) © 2001 hyperI/O LLC. 7 Computer hardware keeps getting faster And the amount of storage keeps growing So how much performance: - have you actually gained? - and whats the bottom line ROI? But storage performance has not kept pace Better performance is important (many benefits to be gained) Problem Summary

8 hIOmon Overview (9/01) © 2001 hyperI/O LLC. 8 Files are: Integral part of the computer system itself Main mechanism by which users and most application programs access data (files are the tangible part of storage) A cornerstone for accessing data within the emergent world of virtualized storage A key starting point for assessing the overall performance and productivity of your computer systems Looking for answers – files everywhere

9 hIOmon Overview (9/01) © 2001 hyperI/O LLC. 9 Measuring/monitoring storage I/O performance at the file level Deal with storage I/O performance issues in terms that you can more easily understand and identify Get empirical data to determine actual benefit/ROI Evaluate/verify proposed performance improvements (including the various new emerging technologies) based upon a crucial computer system component Manage your specific storage assets to ensure that required performance levels are met as expected Measuring to meliorate and manage

10 hIOmon Overview (9/01) © 2001 hyperI/O LLC. 10 Easily Quickly Precisely R eliably Measure and monitor disk I/O operations at the specific FILE level How hIOmon can help hIOmon - the File I/O Performance Monitor

11 hIOmon Overview (9/01) © 2001 hyperI/O LLC. 11 hIOmon Architecture A flexible, adaptable, scalable architecture: Currently supports Microsoft® Windows® NT and 2000

12 hIOmon Overview (9/01) © 2001 hyperI/O LLC. 12 Supports both real-time and replay display modes Local or remote control/display over network Selectable performance metrics to collect Export capability (CSV file for spreadsheets) Specific file selection (with wildcard and exclusion support) hIOmon - Easy to use Simple, easy-to-use Java GUI display (set options and view file I/O performance metrics)

13 hIOmon Overview (9/01) © 2001 hyperI/O LLC. 13 Features an efficient, lightweight I/O Monitor component Configurable start-up and set-up options (including support for automated operation) Periodic Close-file Alert basis Alert capabilities to monitor selected file I/O performance thresholds (user-specified) Summary performance metrics on a: hIOmon - Fast and efficient operation Installs in just a few minutes

14 hIOmon Overview (9/01) © 2001 hyperI/O LLC. 14 Supports detection of sequential access within the file Detailed I/O performance metrics option (individual file I/O operation basis) Summarized I/O performance metrics option Types/rates of file I/O operations performed Minimum, average and maximum response times Amount of data transferred & data transfer sizes Maximum data transfer rate observed And more … Precision time stamps (support for sub-millisecond precision) hIOmon - Precise performance metrics

15 hIOmon Overview (9/01) © 2001 hyperI/O LLC. 15 Help assess actual performance gains and ROI Verify/ensure required levels of file I/O performance (QoS) are being met Evaluate proposed improvements to the performance of your computer systems Help reduce storage management costs Prudently approach and adopt emerging storage technologies hIOmon Benefits Better diagnose and understand storage access performance problems
