Many of these features and options are built into the Symmetrix design. Listing markpoints Listing files Markpoints can be listed in the same manner as search results. RPO optimization significantly reduces the effect of seeks and latency times on the overall performance of the disk. Generally, you move among the areas of a screen by pressing Tab to move forward or Shift-Tab to move backward.


Unit of cache equivalent to one track. A disk drive using FBA format is viewed as a large array of blocks. If the line can be moved, one of the icons shown in Figure 5 on page 25 appears. Figure 31 Monitor menu From the monitor window system can be selected. Using the toolbar — Click Login Figure 16 Login button?

There are three sections on the screen: Figure Help menu Contents The contents function displays the contents of the SymmWin online help files and includes the following sections: Change Director — Changes the director tab on the left of the window.

Fibre Channel adapters front-end The Symmetrix DMX-4 Fibre Channel adapters provide the connectivity ;roduct the host channels and the Fibre Channel front-end director through optical transceiver connections. It is sometimes convenient to sort the table by columns because there smc so many sensors. Symmetrix arrays, EMC’s flagship product at that time, began shipping in as a storage array connected to an IBM mainframe via the block multiplexer channel.

The screen shown in Figure 7 on page 27 will appear. Drives in Symmetrix DMX systems attached to iseries hosts are configured ptoduct byte blocks.

The channel directors and global memory directors manage the storage control functions. Reload — R Reloads the log file. Type Append string and remote filename. That is, it has gjide index marker, home address HArecord zero R0and one or more data records R1 through Rn. Enginuity manages and ensures the optimal flow and integrity of information through the different hardware components of the Symmetrix system.

This logical volume can be added to Symmetrix units that are symmetris and running without emx-4 existing data on the disk drive by giving the volume an address beyond any currently used on the unit. They can adjust for real-world situations and intelligently choose the method that works best for a given situation.

Pressing X toggles Hex mode, and pressing H toggles Help. Log Table — Place results in a log. Enginuity uses an intelligent algorithm attuned to real-life workloads and dynamic usage patterns which will detect sequences quickly, but prefetch only when the probability of increasing global memory hits is high. A user-defined storage device. Check Alarms — Obtains FRU status general alarm information from the operating system and will display it in the Alarm tab.
