Solving the noisy neighbour problem
In a compute cluster with shared storage it is possible for a small number of jobs to overload the network or file system. This can affect the performance of all the jobs on the cluster and even bring it down completely. This is called the noisy neighbour problem.
Our products combat the noisy neighbour problem by detecting rogue jobs and throttling I/O at the application level.
Products to load balance shared storage
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.
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.
