Performance and Tuning Considerations for SAS®Viyaon Dell EMC®VxFlex™

This technical paper presents the testing results of an SAS®Viyaworkload on the DellEMC®VxFlex™system. The Dell EMC VxFlex was utilized as an MPP architecture for the Viyasystem. This effort involved testing a SAS Viyaworkload in MPP mode against 6 Dell R640 host nodes. The tests were performed to show the appliance scalability as well as uniformity of performance per MPPnode. This paper outlines performance test results performed by SAS, and general configuration and tuning considerations for the DellEMC VxFlexsystem for SAS Viyadeployments.

A testing overview is discussed first. Next, detailed descriptions of the actual test bed and workload are provided along with a description of the test hardware. Test results follow, with a list of tuning recommendations. Finally, general considerations, recommendations for implementation with SAS Viya, and conclusions are discussed.
