3 Introduction Performance tuning is a complex topic especially when it comes to Real Application Cluster (RAC) databases. A typical DBA is often confronted with a need to obtain more performance on an existing database workload. In many cases, this workload can not be recoded in any way. This paper will describe one approach to increasing performance without recoding an application. That approach is flash based SAN storage compared with spinning disk SAN storage. Disclaimer Datapipe has a large investment in 3par SAN storage. The purpose of this investigation is not to disparage or give a negative impression of the 3par storage system. 3par SAN storage is our primary solution. We are looking for solutions that are faster or less costly than traditional Fibre Channel or SSD based systems to use as a supplement to the existing SAN infrastructure. Problem Statement Determine if a flash memory based fiber attached SAN can provide a noticeable benefit to an OLTP database. Storage Definitions 3par FC Storage 3par FC (Tier 1) storage refers to a spinning disk based storage located on a 3par T-Series SAN. The disks are 15k fiber channel in RAID 1+0. The term 3parFC storage will be used from now on. 3par SSD Storage 3par SSD (Tier SSD) storage refers to a SSD disk based storage located on a 3par T-Series SAN. The disks are SSD in RAID 1+0. The term 3parSSD storage will be used from now on. Pure SSD Storage Pure SSD storage refers to the Pure FlashArray. All disks are SSD. The term PureSSD will be used from now on. Testing Method All test results used in the creation of this report were generated using HammerOra, a product that easily allows for the creating and running of TPC-C benchmark run. For all tests, the tablespaces SYSTEM and SYSAUX and the database control files resided on a 3par LUN. Only the schema tablespaces, the undo tablespaces, archivelog location and the redo logs were adjusted. Our goal is not to run the entire DB on a particular storage, but to observe performance gains by relocating parts of the DB to faster storage in a mixed use setting. This method of testing allows for rapid adjustments without the downtime required to relocate controlfiles and system tablespaces. 3

6 HP 3PAR T-Class Storage Systems are designed to deliver enterprise IT as a utility service in order to drive agility and efficiency in enterprise-class, virtual and cloud data centers. The new Tier 1 storage for cloud computing, HP 3PAR T-Class Storage Systems are designed to deliver enterprise IT as a utility service simply, efficiently, and flexibly. T-Class arrays feature a tightly coupled clustered architecture, secure multi-tenancy, and mixed workload support to fuel enterprise-class virtual and cloud data centers. Use of unique thin technologies reduces acquisition and operational costs by up to 50 percent while autonomic management features improve administrative efficiency by up to tenfold. The HP 3PAR Gen3 ASIC in each of the system s controller nodes provides a hyper-efficient, silicon-based engine that drives on-the-fly storage optimization to maximize capacity utilization while delivering high service levels. T-Class arrays are built from the ground up to enable agile and efficient response to the changing business needs present in today s most demanding data centers. Quoted from HP s web site 6

7 Pure Storage FlashArray FA-320 The Pure Storage FlashArray is an all-flash enterprise storage array designed from the ground-up for 100% MLC flash memory. The FlashArray was designed to balance performance and economics, delivering 100,000s of IOPS of performance with consistent <1ms latency, but at a price point at or below traditional Tier 1 disk storage. The FlashArray drives down the cost of flash memory using a combination of MLC-grade flash memory (less expensive than traditional SLC flash) and inline data reduction technologies (deduplication, compression, pattern removal, and thin provisioning). The data reduction technologies are inline, high-performance, and are a core part of the FlashArray s architecture (so much so they can t be turned off). The FlashArray was designed for enterprise reliability, employing active/active high availability via clustered controllers, non-volatile RAM for persistence of in-flight data through power loss, and dual-parity-or-better drive loss protection via it s unique RAID architecture, RAID-3D. 7

8 HammerOra. HammerOra is an open source load test tool for the Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server and MySQL Databases and Web Applications. More information about HammerOra can be found on the web site: For the tests conducted for this paper, the HammerOra tool was instructed to create a 40 warehouse database schema. Once completed the schema was exported using datapump and then imported into new schemas that were placed on each of the storage tiers to be tested. In this way, the test schemas are all identical. TPC-C The HammerOra tool utilizes a TPC-C benchmarking methodology. TPC-C implements a computer system to fulfill orders from customers to supply products from a company. The company sells 100,000 items and keeps its stock in warehouses. Each warehouse has 10 sales districts and each district serves 3000 customers. The customers call the company whose operators take the order, each order containing a number of items. Orders are usually satisfied from the local warehouse however a small number of items are not in stock at a particular point in time and are supplied by an alternative warehouse. Figure 1 shows this company structure. Database configuration Six ASM Disk groups were created. Two for each storage type 2 disk groups for Pure SSD.

15 Summary The Figures 2 through 10 are snapshots of the graphs generated by the testing engine. These graphs were captured at various points during the testing process. The graphs were included in this report to show trending information and also to show the maximum TPM values calculated during the test run by the testing engine (the numbers on the left side of the graph are the TMP values at one particular time reference. The numbers along the bottom of the graphs are time stamps. As a reminder, keep in mind that this is a mixed storage cluster. The goal is to demonstrate that adding faster storage to specific areas can improve overall performance. For these tests, the schema data, the redo logs, archivelogs and the undo tablespaces were located on each of the 3 different storage types so as to record the performance metrics from each adjustment. The rest of the database consisting of temporary tablespace, system tablespace, and control files were always placed on the same storage volume. The first three tests results show a pronounced improvement in test. Test 1 results indicate a 60% improvement for 10 virtual users to complete a total of 100,000 db transactions. Test 2 results indicate a 45% improvement for 10 virtual users to complete a total of 1,000,000 db transactions. Test 3 results indicate a 36% improvement for 20 virtual users to complete a total of 2,000,000 db transactions. Test 4 results indicate little improvement and even a slight degradation for 100 virtual users to complete 5,000,000 transactions each. However, it is my belief that these tests results should be ignored. A further inspection of the db cluster and test engine server indicate that 25% of the time used during Test 4 runs on all storage layers was consumed by CPU waits on both the DB cluster and test engine server. Another 30% of the time involved network waits between the test engine and db cluster. In short, all indications are that Test 4 workloads simply overwhelmed the infrastructure. Test 5 was conducted to ensure that Oracle s native backup and recovery tools are able to function properly. All RMAN testing was successful. 15

16 Observations The native asmca GUI tool that Oracle provides for ASM disk group management is easily able to detect and utilize disk LUNs provisioned from the Pure FlashArray. Oracle linux device-mapper-multipath is able to properly detect and managed the disk LUNs provide from the Pure FlashArray. Oracle ASMLIB is able to label and present to the Oracle Grid software, the devices created on top of the Pure FlashArray LUNs. Conclusions My overall opinion of the Pure FlashArray storage device is very favorable. Performance obtained from the device exceeded expectations. The ability to add this device directly into our existing fiber fabric and to use the device in a mixed storage environment along side our existing SAN infrastructure is a huge plus. Our original goal of demonstrating at least a 10% performance gain was easily achieved. 16
