NFS

Overview

The Load DynamiX’s NFS Protocol Testing Solution allows storage, development and QA engineers to build complex workloads that represent real product environments, emulating clients or applications servers at high scale.

Load DynamiX supports all major versions of the NFS protocol including client emulation of NFSv2, NFSv3, NFSv4 and NFSv4.1.

Features: NFS
Client-side Caching / Locking

  • Configure emulated clients to use delegation to understand client caching synchronization behavior, assess increases in file server scalability and reduction in network bandwidth consumption
  • Use share reservation locks to understand potential for performance degradation

NFS Failover/Availability
  • Reconnect feature that allows emulated clients to resume I/O operations after network failures or logical interface changes to test failover and measure convergence times. Use when writing petabyte files to resume I/O from the point of failure.

Client Emulation/Realism
  • Reconnect feature that allows emulated clients to resume I/O operations after network failures or logical interface changes to test failover and measure convergence times. Use when writing petabyte files to resume I/O from the point of failure.

NFSv.4.1 Protocol Testing

“I can quickly set up the tests I want, run them, find the problems, make changes, and run again. Load DynamiX is really easy and automated — I don’t have to write and rewrite from scratch, I can use the CIFS and NFS toolbox to customize tests by clicking and dragging.”
