VSE for storage volume evaluation

Jump to solution

Hi Heroes,

We are estimating how many VSE for Storage servers needs to be deployed.

Can you share your experience on this? 

We currently have 7 network storages, 4 netapp and 3 hp (HP_3PAR 8440), the overall IOPS is about 180Mbps.

I'm trying to go through the documents but didnt find any best practice things or volume estimation suggestions. 

Thanks in advance!!!

Hi @User21257322 ,

Yes, "one scanner" means "one VSE Storage Server".
The KB mentions the best practice. The actual load experienced ultimately determines the scanner count. 
When the number of "VSE Storage Servers" (A VSES scanner) is small, the IO time for scanning may have an impact on storage performance. We recommend testing with storage in your environment.

Sorry on more question here, will the full file be transferred to VSES for scanning, or only the part of the file or metadata of the file be transferred to VSES for scanning? thanks.
