Q: 7
A customer has designed an environment using block based LUNs presented to individual hosts. They have configured a pool to start using both thick and thin LUNs. One of the standalone servers is an archive server running on Windows. They want to maximize capacity on the standalone server since the data is no longer accessed. They have no more drives to increase LUN capacity.
How can the customer increase available capacity to the archive server?
A. Compress the data on the block based LUN
B. Add capacity to the existing LUN
C. Delete old files
D. Back up the files, reconfigure the LUN, and restore the data
Answer: A

Q: 8
A customer is checking a NAR file in Unisphere Analyzer. They see that a RAID Group with only a single LUN is shown with consistently large Disk - Average Seek Distances.
What could this indicate?
A. Randomness of the I/O
B. Write utilization
C. LUN misalignment
D. Applicationburstiness
Answer: A

Q: 9
A SQL Data Warehouse database is replicating between two VNX storage systems with Incremental San Copy. The production database is on 15, 15k rpm SAS drives and the Reserved LUN Pool uses five NL-SAS drives. The database is continuously updated locally and replicated once a day to maximize the benefits of write folding. Replication takes place from 6 PM until 10 PM. At 6 PM the storage administrator notices an increase in response time of the application, which steadily improves until 10 PM.
What should be done to improve performance during replication without affecting recovery data granularity?
A. Put the Reserve LUN Pool on a similar disk and RAID type as the source volume.
B. Create a clone of the source volume and replicate the clone.
C. Expand the number of drives in the source volume to accommodate the increased I/O from the replication session.
D. Adjust the San Copy throttle to minimize the impact to the production application.
Answer: A

Q: 10
A pair of VNX storage arrays is replicating between two data centers over an iSCSI connection. The SQL Admin has noticed that a small OLTP database with a write size of 4k periodically experiences increased disk response times. The Storage Admin reports that during the same period, replication sessions are taking longer to complete. The Network Admin reports degraded performance between the
sites during the same period.
Why is the SQL application seeing increased disk response times from the local array?
A. Increased latency causes the MirrorView/A update cycles to take longer, increasing COFW activity.
B. The 64 KB chunk size for MirrorView/A does not match the small transaction size of the database, increasing the bandwidth required between the arrays.
C. The MirrorView/A update cycle time is too short. It should be increased to improve write folding.
D. The MirrorView/A buffer size should be adjusted to match the smaller write I/O size.
Answer: A

Q: 11
You are working with a customer to design a VNX for Block solution for their SQL database. They currently have a CX4-480. In the past they have co-located their database and log files. In the new VNX design, the database will be placed in a FAST VP enabled pool. The transaction logs will be placed on a traditional RAID Group. Your customer needs help determining the number of spindles they need to
satisfy the needs of their transaction logs.
You know the following: -Transactionperiod:8 hours (business day) -Throughput during transaction period:240 GB
How many RAID 1/0 15K spindles will the transaction log volume require?
A. 4
