Symmetrix VMAX Performance Workshop


This course introduces participants to the methodology for analyzing performance of Symmetrix VMAX 1/2arrays. Participants will learn to analyze Symmetrix VMAX performance using ControlCenter Performance Manager and Symmetrix Performance Analyzer tools. Metrics that are relevant for analysis of each of the components in a Symmetrix VMAX 1/2array are presented. Participants will learn to identify bottlenecks for performance and provide recommendations to remedy the problem. Hands-on lab exercises using performance archives reinforce the concepts and methodology presented in the lecture.



This course is intended for anyone responsible for operating, maintaining, and optimizing the performance of a Symmetrix storage environment.
