Question 6

Question
When interviewing customer personnel, you learn of two sets of requirements: - The technical team has a specific set of requirements that they have to meet. - The manager has a financial requirement that has to be met. As you begin to design, it becomes clear that, in order to meet the technical goal, the financial requirement will be exceeded. What should you do?
Answer

Question 17

Question
A customer is experiencing a performance issue with a specific VNX file system. Analyzer showed that the utilization of several RAID Groups was in the red. The problematic file system, however, was mapped only to one of those RAID Groups, while other RAID Groups served file systems without known issues. How would you explain utilization metric to this customer?
Answer
  • Utilization is a calculated number that determines how busy an object is, and it is likely to be too high rather than too low.
  • Utilization is a derived number that carries very little weight, and it is likely to be too low rather than too high.
  • Utilization is a calculated number that is used only for the internal spinning disk write/read adjustment algorithms, and it is always definitive.
