EMC Symmetrix DMX-4 and Symmetrix V-Max: Basic Differences

The DMX-4 illustrations are used unless the other model screens are produvt different form, fit, or function.

Supported cluster hosts For the most recent information on supported cluster hosts, refer to the EMC Powerlink website. Symmetrix data integrity protection features The Symmefrix system is designed with these data integrity features: Always use the correct replacement parts.

Table 18 on page 79 lists the Fibre Channel front-end support capabilities for directors, their Symmetrix devices, and their addressing. If the user wants to remove this task from the Scheduler, it must be done manually by this site.

The SymmWin definitions window shown in Figure on page displays value assignments for SymmWin. DMX-4 block diagram on page 53 DMX-4 point-to-point message matrix on page 55 DMX-4 slot configuration on page 56 Produt block diagram In a fully configured Symmetrix DMX-4, each of the eight director ports on the 16 directors connects to one of the 16 memory ports on each of the eight global memory directors.

Go to the console or laptop that holds the soft FOB program. This section includes the following topics: Bottom of file — B Sends you to the bottom of the file. WARNING A warning contains information essential to avoid a hazard that can cause severe personal injury, death, or substantial property damage if you ignore the warning.


The Fibre Channel director interfaces to Symmetrix channels through the Fibre Channel interface adapter. SymmWin logfiles normally contain three types of information: Symmetrix channel connectivity and host integration There are two buttons: Tabs The two tabs at the emcc of the fuide define several different parameter sets: The icon at the left of the toolbar allows you to change the display font, and the icon at the right provides on-line help.

AC failures Transfer to auxiliary DC failures Current sharing between DC supplies DC output voltage Specific notification of overvoltage condition Current from each DC supply Voltage drops across major connectors Ailing components can be detected and replaced before a failure occurs.

Figure 2 on page 28 provides a front view of the exterior of a Symmetrix DMX-4 configured with one system bay and four storage bays.

Fibre Channel adapters front-end The Symmetrix DMX-4 Fibre Channel adapters provide the connectivity between guidf host channels and the Fibre Channel front-end director through optical transceiver connections. Format — Displays the contents of the buffer in hex format across the bottom of the window.

Channel 1 Destage blocks 2 Update directory Channel director Directory Global memory Disk director Disk Figure 30 Destaging operation For each logical volume the Symmetrix system maintains a special data structure that points to the data that needs to be destaged in the global memory Write Fuide Indicators WPIs already discussed above.

A Alternate Track A track designated to contain data in place of a defective primary track. This section describes the data transfer rates and supported cable lengths for the different channel directors. To reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect all power supply cords before servicing.

The performance improvement achieved depends on both of the following principles: The Symmetrix DMX-4 contains no user-serviceable parts. The directors improve the hit ratio of these accesses by promoting blocks from the drives to global memory slots before that data has been requested.


The capacities are approximate because the number of logical volumes and data protection options are not factored into the total drive capacity. The system bay also contains up to eight power supplies, each of which has a dedicated BBU. Power System – check power cables — Displays the Cables tab.

Click Run to the right of the Procedure Wizard, as shown in Figure 30 on page When configuring global memory for the Symmetrix DMX systems follow these guidelines: Cache partitioning is a logical partitioning of cache. You can determine the frequency of the execution, specify the resources it requires, and assign alternative procedures to be used in case ghide a run failure, as shown in Figure symmetris on page Parallel global memory regions on page Buffering on page Access arbitration on page Memory striping on page Symmetrix DMX-4 global memory architecture drastically reduces memory contention by partitioning the global memory into four separately addressable, simultaneously accessible guidd.

PermaCache is best used for infrequently accessed data that needs instantaneous response because this data is normally not in global memory when it is requested.

The directory contains information on each memory page and blocks within each page. Append buffer — A screen pops up to append a string. You can customize the logical-to-physical relationship on each device as well as the size of each logical volume. Setting a markpoint While conducting your search, you might want to compare several matches that are far apart in the file.
