Context: X (an online shopping website) plans to launch a "shopping carnival" on Singles' Day (which falls on Nov. 11) and brandishes big discounts (as much as 50 percent off) on numerous items to draw netizens' attention and expand its influence. Thanks to the advertisement at earlier stage, website visits per day increase dramatically, faster than expected. Sometimes, the website stops responding to customers' shopping requests. With such an increasingly website visits, the website may even be paralyzed on Singles' Day. It will then become a disaster to the website's finance and reputation. As an IT administrator, Mr. W feels quite worried. What is he supposed to do?

Luckily for him, we have Storage Journal: Tips for Bonding Storage Ports. Check it out!

 

Tips for Bonding Storage Ports describes how to bond multiple iSCSI host ports in 802.3ad mode. In doing so, the data transmission rate of these iSCSI host ports can be improved efficiently (as long as other components do not meet their performance bottlenecks).

[Before bonding ports, you need to:]

1、Ensure that services have been stopped on the iSCSI host ports to be bonded.

2、Ensure that the iSCSI host ports to be bonded belong to the same controller.

[Precautions]

1、iSCSI host ports that have been bonded cannot configured with value-added services.

2、After iSCSI host ports are bonded, their existing IP addresses are cleared. You must assign a new IP address to the bond iSCSI host port.

3、If ports are bonded and the IP address of a subordinate port is changed, the IP addresses of the rest subordinate ports are changed as well. The subordinate ports of a bond port share the same IP address.

4、The T series storage systems support link aggregation in dynamic mode. However, HUAWEI S5700 supports switches on which link aggregation can be configured in static mode. Ports of the T series storage systems and of HUAWEI S5700 cannot be bonded.
