1 January VERITAS Software - Storage Foundation for Windows Dynamic Multi-Pathing Performance Testing Test report prepared under contract from VERITAS Software Corporation Executive summary VERITAS Software Corporation ( VERITAS ) commissioned VeriTest, a division of Lionbridge Technologies Inc., to conduct a series of performance tests between VERITAS Dynamic Multi-Pathing and EMC PowerPath in a Microsoft Cluster Server environment with an EMC Clariion CX600 storage array. The VERITAS Dynamic Multi-Pathing is part of VERITAS Storage Foundation for Windows software, previously VERITAS Volume Manager, and provides transparent, redundant paths to disk drives from the server. PowerPath is a stand-alone product from EMC that provides transparent redundant paths to disk drives from the server. Key findings In our test configurations, we found that VERITAS Dynamic Multi-Pathing generated better Tpm scores compared to the EMC PowerPath product in both the out-of-box and vendor recommended HBA configurations. In our test configurations, we found that VERITAS Dynamic Multi-Pathing generated better TpmC scores compared to the EMC PowerPath product in both the out-of-box and vendor recommended HBA configurations. During configuration and testing, we liked the fact that we were able to perform all operations using the GUI interface provided with VERITAS Storage Foundation for Windows. Installing the EMC PowerPath product required that we make use of the command line interface. For these tests, we configured identical testbeds for both products. East testbed consisted of a Dell PowerEdge 4400 configured with dual 1GHz Pentium III Xeon processors, 2GB of RAM and running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition with all latest updates. We installed a Qlogic QLA-2342 Host Bus Adapter ( HBA ) in the PowerEdge 4400 and connected it to the EMC CX600 using a Brocade Gb 16-port switch. Additionally, we set up four identical Dell OptiPlex GX115 client systems configured with a single 866Mhz Pentium III processor and 256MB of RAM for use as load generation and monitoring systems. Finally, we used Microsoft Cluster Server Software to create a highly-available server environment. To measure the performance using the products above, we executed a series of Microsoft Benchcraft TPC-C tests. The Benchcraft software is provided as part of the Microsoft SQL Server TPC-C Benchmark Kit. We conducted these tests using an out-of-box configuration as well as a vendor-recommended configuration that consisted primarily of modifying the default HBA settings to those recommended by VERITAS and EMC for their respective products. The Benchcraft TPC-C software generates two different metrics, namely Tpm and TpmC. Tpm is defined as transactions per minute and is the number of total transactions, new orders, payments, delivery, stock level and order status that the system is able to process in one minute. TpmC is defined as transactions per minute order entry. This is the numbers of new orders the system is able to process in one minute. Please refer to the Test Methodology section of this report for complete details on how we conducted these tests.

2 Figure 1 below compares the results of the TpmC testing for both the VERITAS Dynamic Multi-Pathing and EMC PowerPath products using out-of-box and vendor-recommended HBA configurations. Testing with our configurations showed that VERITAS Dynamic Multi-Pathing outperformed EMC PowerPath in the out-of-box HBA configurations as well as after tuning the HBA using the vendor-recommended guidelines. Additionally, we found that using the EMC vendor-recommended HBA tunings had no impact on the performance generated using the VERITAS Dynamic Multi-Pathing product.

3 Testing methodology VERITAS Software Corporation ( VERITAS ) commissioned VeriTest, a division of Lionbridge Technologies Inc., to conduct a series of performance tests between VERITAS Dynamic Multi-Pathing and EMC PowerPath in a Microsoft Cluster Server environment with an EMC Clariion CX600 storage array. The VERITAS Dynamic Multi-Pathing is part of the VERITAS Storage Foundation for Windows software and provides transparent, redundant paths to disk drives from the server. EMC PowerPath is a stand-alone product from EMC that provides transparent, redundant paths to disk drives from the server. The testing consisted of installing both products under test on identical testbeds consisting of server-class systems, four load-generating clients and an EMC CX600 system used as an SQL database repository. We then used Microsoft s Benchcraft TPC-C software to measure the performance of both products under test. The Benchcraft software is provided as part of the Microsoft SQL Server TPC-C Benchmark Kit. There are significant parameters that EMC recommends be applied to the Qlogic HBA when used with PowerPath that are not required by VERITAS when using VERITAS Dynamic Multi-Pathing. Therefore, the decision was made to run two different tests. The first with the Qlogic HBA in an out-of-box configuration, or the way the HBA comes configured from the factory. Running two separate tests enables us to see what effect, if any, the parameters make to either environment. Figure 3 below shows both the default Qlogic settings, as well as those recommended by EMC. These parameters were taken directly from the EMC Fibre Channel with Qlogic Host Bus Adapters in the Windows environment guide, P/N REV A03. Parameter QLogic Default Setting Recommended EMC Setting Data Rate 0 (1 Gb/s) 2 (Auto Select) Execution Throttle Connection options (topology) 2 (Loop preferred, otherwise point-to-point) 1 (point to point only) Enable LIP Full Login Yes Yes Enable Target Reset No Yes Port Down Retry Count 8 45 Luns Per Target Adapter Hard Loop ID Enabled Disabled Hard Loop ID Descending Search LoopID 0 1 Figure 3. Default and EMC-Recommended Qlogic HBA Settings Testbed Configuration Details This section describes the details of the testbeds used in these tests for both products under test. We configured identical testbeds for both products. Please refer to Appendix A for a graphic depiction of the testbeds we used. Each testbed consisted of a Dell PowerEdge 4400 configured with dual 1GHz Pentium III Xeon processors, 2GB of RAM and running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition with all latest updates. Additionally, we set up four identical Dell OptiPlex GX115 client systems configured with a single 866Mhz Pentium III processor, 256MB of RAM and running Windows Server 2000 and Service Pack 4 for use as loadgeneration and monitoring systems. We connected the server and client systems using 100 Mbps full duplex network connections. We installed a Qlogic QLA-2342 Host Bus Adapter in the PowerEdge 4400 and connected it to the EMC CX600 using a Brocade Gb 16-port switch. Finally, we used Microsoft Cluster Server Software to create a highly-available server environment. VERITAS Software - SFW Dynamic Multi-Pathing Performance Testing 3

4 When testing with VERITAS Dynamic Multi-Pathing, we connected the PowerEdge 4400 server running Windows 2003 Enterprise Server using the VERITAS-recommended topology as detailed in the VERITAS Storage Foundation for Windows Implementations Guide. We installed Windows 2003 Enterprise Server with VERITAS Storage Foundation for Windows as detailed in the VERITAS Storage Foundation for Windows Administration Guide (VERITAS part number N102768) and applied the most current patch level as of January 19, MSCS was installed and configured to work in conjunction with VERITAS Storage Foundation for Windows. MS SQL Server was installed with the Latin1_General_Binary collation option as a virtual server in MSCS and patched with SP3a. When testing with EMC PowerPath, we connected the PowerEdge 4400 server running Windows 2003 Enterprise Server using the EMC-recommended topology as detailed in the EMC PowerPath Version 3.0 Installation and Administration Guide for Windows P/N REV A-03. We installed Windows 2003 Enterprise Server with EMC PowerPath and applied the most current patch level as of January 19, MSCS was installed and configured to work in conjunction with EMC PowerPath. MS SQL Server was installed with the Latin1_General_Binary collation option as a virtual server in MSCS and patched with SP3a. After setting up the testbeds for each product as shown above, we created and configured a set of LUNs on the CX600 for use during the testing. This configuration was identical for each of the products under test and is shown in figure 4 below. All LUNs created on the CX600 were multi-pathed. Testing using this configuration allows the SQL log LUN to have a dedicated channel to the array during testing. The transaction log is critical to database performance. As only cold backups were performed during testing, the SQL log LUNs were not in use at the same time as the backup LUNs. Finally, the EMC PowerPath connections to the CX600 were identical to those used for the VERITAS Dynamic Multi-Pathing configuration with the exception that both service processor ports 0 and 1 are connected to the fabric in accordance with EMC s documentation.

CX600 LUN Configuration for All Testing Configuring and Running Benchcraft TPC-C To measure the performance using the products above, we executed a series of Microsoft Benchcraft TPC-C tests. The Benchcraft software is provided as part of the Microsoft SQL Server TPC-C Benchmark Kit. We conducted these tests using an out-of-box configuration as well as a vendor-recommended configuration that consisted primarily of modifying the default HBA settings to those recommended by VERITAS and EMC for their respective products. The Benchcraft TPC-C software generates two different metrics, namely Tpm and TpmC. Tpm is defined as Transactions per minute and is the number of total transactions, new orders, payments, delivery, stock level and order status that the system is able to process in one minute. TpmC is defined as Transactions per minute order entry. This is the numbers of new orders the system is able to process in one minute. For more information or additional detail on TPC-C benchmarking tests please visit the Transaction Processing Performance Council s website at We modified the Benchcraft SQL scripts to conform to the current environment. This primarily entailed changing pathnames in the 800.war setup files to match the current environment. The TPCC SQL database was created using Benchcraft s supplied GUI, with the supplied default operations. In addition to the default VERITAS Software - SFW Dynamic Multi-Pathing Performance Testing 4

5 operations, we selected the configure SQL Server option. This allows Benchcraft to set up SQL Server as recommended. After configuring the Benchcraft software for use with SQL Server, we configured the set of four Dell Optiplex GX-115 clients for use in the testing as follows: Performed a complete installation of the Benchcraft software on Client 1. This included the Master, Slave and Processor options. All test configuration and execution was performed from this system. Performed a slave-only Benchcraft installation on the remaining three clients. Two of these were actively used during the testing and the third was redundant. We created two driver engines for each client specifying a unique log file name, default parameter set, a Connect Rate of zero and a Start Rate of zero. Additionally, we configured each driver engine using the following parameters as shown in figure 5 below Client Emulator Connect Method Warehouse Users Connect Rate/Min Start Rate/Min client2 dvra ODBC after start 500 after Connect dvrb ODBC after start 500 after Connect client3 dvra ODBC after start 500 after Connect dvrb ODBC after start 500 after Connect client4 dvra ODBC after start 500 after Connect dvrb ODBC after start 500 after Connect Figure 5. Benchcraft Load Client Emulator Parameters After completing the test configurations and before conducting the final tests, we performed basic interoperability testing including basic I/O testing utilizing the Benchcraft product in order to verify the functionality and stability of all related software and test tools. The test was executed with no special settings or configuration parameters. The servers used were configured as stated above. Additionally, we conducted a Benchcraft test with no multi-pathing software installed and confirmed there were no errors. After verifying that the test configuration was operating correctly we conducted the tests using Benchcraft for each product using the following steps: Double-checked the Rates to verify both connect and start rates were set to zero. Selected all drivers. o We activated all of the drivers and waited until they were fully active. (The drivers start in a paused state.) o We changed the connect rate to 500 connections per minute and we allowed all simulated users to connect to the database. o After all users were connected, we changed the start rate to 500 users per minute. o Finally, after all simulated users had started transactions, we verified the number of connections and the number of active users to be Once all users were active, we monitored the test using the Benchcraft monitoring facility. After the test ran for the allotted time, we stopped the test. We then gathered and analyzed the test results. Two tests were executed with the out-of-box HBA configuration. The best result of the two tests was kept and the other discarded. The same test was performed after vendor-recommended HBA settings were applied. The tests were allowed to execute for enough time to generate stable results. The initial and final 10 minutes of each test s results were discarded during reporting. This further eliminated test startup and shutdown anomalies and provided more accurate results. Benchcraft s reporting tools facilitated the generation of the results detailed in this report.
