Abstract: 

End-users always want to get the “best” performance for their project activities, regardless of which file servers they use.

The monitoring of the NAS performance on file servers in Intel has transformed in the last few years and we have gone from no visibility on performance to good visibility and control over it. The user-experience monitoring, that we have been using, generally provides good correlation to when users are being slowed down because of the file-servers but we also miss performance problems with this method, some of which have a major impact to the projects’ progress.

This presentation will discuss the different methodologies used to monitor NFS file-services performance in Intel’s design data-centers and the performance is controlled and managed.
