    VSE-Storage 1.0.x RPC Timeout and 0x14 errors
    NetApp ONTAP 7.3.6 and 8.0.2 introduced an option to handle idle RPC sessions and in particular idle RPC sessions by file ID. Generally, this new strategy behaves when a particular FID associated with an RPC connection does not have any activity for more than 20 minutes (by default), Data ONTAP disconnects the connection, considering it idle. This change was added to address a memory leak that was experienced by applications that were opening (many) RPC connections and never closing them out. This lack of closing out of connections creates the NetApp memory leak.

     

    Because McAfee VSES uses the same infrastructure for keep-alive probes, the disconnect/idle setting may cause performance issues when reading/writing large files to the filer(s).

     

    For additional information and workaround steps, see KnowledgeBase article KB73358:
    https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB73358

     

    If you encounter VSE for Storage RPC Timeout disconnects with filers running 7.3.6 or 8.0.2, search the NetApp knowledgebase for “ONTAP RPC connections” or contact technical support for NetApp.
