Catching rogue jobs and storage benchmarking
In a compute cluster with shared storage it is possible for a small number of jobs to overload the network or file system. Our tools protect the file system by automatically detecting rogue jobs that are overloading the cluster.
Storage benchmarking is also a key feature of our tools. Through latency analysis, we record the total delay seen by the application so you can track down problems in your network or storage quickly. Whether you are assessing the performance of a new storage system or trying to locate a problem in your existing infrastructure, we have the benchmarking for you.
Products that provide I/O profiling
Mistral runs in real time across an entire compute cluster, monitoring application I/O and I/O performance to identify rogue jobs and load balance shared storage.
Breeze analyses how your applications are using your storage so you can cut down on wasted processor cycles and reduce the load on the network. It also gives you the information you need to solve software deployment problems and resolve file dependencies quickly.
Simple, immediate checks that analyse dozens of different harmful I/O patterns and give you the top ten worst offenders, as well as the impact they are having on the performance of your application and the scalability.
