Does InfoEqualizer affect File Distribution?

2

Distribution of file fragments in the OceanStor 9000 is not affected by InfoEqualizer. InfoEqualizer is only responsible for distributing the entries for clients to access theOceanStor 9000. How are file fragments written by clients distributed in the system is determined by the data protection mechanism.

The following factors can affect file distribution:
Redundancy ratio of a folder where files reside

The redundancy ratio of a file where files reside determines the number of file fragments, thereby affecting distribution of file fragments in the system.

InfoTier

If a file system has multiple InfoTier node pools for which a specific policy has been set, files will be distributed to or migrated among the node pools according to the policy.

If InfoTier is not available for the file system, file fragments will be distributed to a InfoTier node pool at random.

Fragments of a file can only be distributed to nodes in a InfoTier node pool and will not be distributed to nodes cross nodes pools.

Effects of OceanStor 9000 InfoEqualizer on file distribution
InfoEqualizer has no impact on the file slice distribution in OceanStor 9000. InfoEqualizer only allocates the entry for the client to access OceanStor 9000. The data protection mechanism determines how to distribute the files written into the system from the client. Factors that affect the file distribution are as follows: 1. Redundancy ratio of files in a folder The redundancy ratio of files in a folder determines the number of file slices, affecting the file slice distribution on each node in the system. 2. The InfoTier feature When a file system contains multiple InfoTier node pools with corresponding policies, files are distributed in the corresponding node pool and migrated among node pools based on the policies. When the file system has no InfoTier policy configured, the file slices are randomly distributed to an InfoTier node pool. Slices of a file will not be distributed to different node pools.
