Why Is the Internet Broken: Greatest Hits

When I started this site back in October of 2014, it was mainly to drive traffic to my NetApp Insight sessions -and it worked.

(By the way… stay tuned for a blog on this year’s new Insight sessions by yours truly. Now with more lab!)

As I continued writing, my goal was to keep creating content – don’t be the guy who just shows up during conference season.

blogfieldofdreams

So far, so good.

But since I create so much content, it gets hard to find for new visitors to this site, The WordPress archives/table of contents is lacking. So, what I’ve done is create my own table of contents of the top 5 most visited posts.

New XCP 1.6.1 Version is now Available!

flash

If you use XCP (or have used it), you might have run into an issue or two on occasion – generally related to memory issues or problems with XCP sync taking too long.

The new XCP 1.6.1 release aims to fix some of those issues.

Key enhancements

Sync Performance : Identified sync bottlenecks w.r.t change handling and fixed in 1.6.1 to Improve the sync performance. Now incremental sync takes less time than baseline.  This would help performing more frequent syncs or will need less sync/cutover window.

Memory Optimization : Memory allocation was a challenge in the previous versions and used to receive “Memory allocation” errors during the large sync jobs. XCP 1.6.1 handles the memory allocation elegantly to further assist in accomplishing the sync job.

Syslog integration : Configure Syslog option to send XCP events to the remote syslog server for monitoring the XCP jobs.

Complete Features List of NetApp XCP 1.6.1

  • Sync performance improvements (NFS/SMB)
  • Memory optimization (NFS Sync)
  • File Analytics (General Availability)
  • Event logging – XCP now supports logging events to xcp_event.log file
  • Syslog support (NFS/SMB)

The XCP TME Karthik Nagalingam also wrote up a blog on XCP:

https://blog.netapp.com/data-migration-xcp

File Analytics

In XCP 1.6, a new File Analytics Engine was added to XCP. This basically configures an Apache web server, a postgresql database and adds a web GUI to view file information using an XCP listener agent. Karthik also wrote a blog on that:

https://blog.netapp.com/xcp-data-migration-software

With this feature, you can add your NFS server/volume and XCP will run periodic scans on the datasets to provide information.

xcp_fsa_add_nfs

Once you add a server, you get a list of the available exports:

xcp_fsa_shares

Once you have the shares, you can click on one and run a scan:

xcp_fsa_home

Once that’s done, you can access the Stat View and File Distribution tabs:

The stat view includes:

  • Hot/cold data size and count
  • File capacity sorted by size
  • File distribution by size
  • Directory depth
  • Directory entries
  • Accessed time
  • Information on space occupied by users

Postgresql DB

In addition to the web GUI, you also can access the postgresql database. That way you can query the database if you choose.

When XCP configures the database, a new table called xcp_cmdb is added:

# sudo -u postgres psql
psql (9.2.24)
Type "help" for help.

postgres=# \l
List of databases
Name | Owner | Encoding | Collate | Ctype | Access privileges
-----------+----------+----------+-------------+-------------+-----------------------
postgres | postgres | UTF8 | en_US.UTF-8 | en_US.UTF-8 |
template0 | postgres | UTF8 | en_US.UTF-8 | en_US.UTF-8 | =c/postgres +
| | | | | postgres=CTc/postgres
template1 | postgres | UTF8 | en_US.UTF-8 | en_US.UTF-8 | =c/postgres +
| | | | | postgres=CTc/postgres
xcp_cmdb | postgres | UTF8 | en_US.UTF-8 | en_US.UTF-8 |
(4 rows)

You can access that database and query which tables are added:

# sudo -u postgres psql xcp_cmdb
psql (9.2.24)
Type "help" for help.

xcp_cmdb=# \dt
List of relations
Schema | Name | Type | Owner
--------+---------------------+-------+---------
public | xcp_agent | table | central
public | xcp_login | table | central
public | xcp_nfs_file_server | table | central
public | xcp_nfs_jobs | table | central
public | xcp_nfs_stats | table | central
public | xcp_nfs_tree | table | central
public | xcp_smb_file_server | table | central
public | xcp_smb_jobs | table | central
public | xcp_smb_stats | table | central
public | xcp_smb_tree | table | central
(10 rows)

You can use standard Postgresql commands to query the tables.

xcp_cmdb=# SELECT file_server_ip FROM xcp_nfs_file_server;
file_server_ip
----------------
10.10.10.10
(1 row)


xcp_cmdb=# SELECT * FROM xcp_nfs_jobs;

Installation/Upgrade Note

If you’re already running an XCP version prior to 1.6.1, you’ll need to re-run the configure.sh script. This creates the XCP service module on the client (NFS version) to provide better overall management.

For example, if I simply untar the XCP install (like you would do in prior versions to upgrade), then XCP commands work fine, but the new File Systems Analytics module doesn’t, as it needs the XCP service to run properly.

Welcome to the Episode 248, part of the continuing series called “Behind the Scenes of the NetApp Tech ONTAP Podcast.”

2019-insight-design2-warhol-gophers

Recently, I tried to set up NetApp Harvest from scratch, using Grafana and Graphite. By the end of the day, with no working instance, I realized that it just wasn’t going to happen. Then, I remembered NABox and within minutes, I was able to start monitoring NetApp ONTAP performance.

This week, we invite NetApp Technical Account Manager Yann Bizeul (@ybontap), NetApp Performance TME Dan Isaacs (@danisaacs) and Client Solutions Architect at AHEAD, Dan Burkland (@dburkland) to discuss NABox – a self-contained, pre-configured VM instance of NetApp Harvest that lets you start monitoring NetApp ONTAP performance in a matter of minutes!

Behind the Scenes: Episode 247 – Democratizing AI in Healthcare with NetApp and Intel

Welcome to the Episode 247, part of the continuing series called “Behind the Scenes of the NetApp Tech ONTAP Podcast.”

2019-insight-design2-warhol-gophers

In a pandemic, quality global healthcare becomes more important than ever. A virus knows no borders, so if you can provide the same quality of technology in Africa as you do in the United States, everyone wins. Leveraging the cloud to provide crucial analytical infrastructure for developing countries makes democratizing healthcare services a possibility, and when you factor in security using blockchain, these countries can also rest assured that the data has integrity.

These technologies also are available to extend over to other important use cases, such as securing free elections.

Dr. Etienne Elie of Intel (https://www.linkedin.com/in/etienne-elie-ph-d-71a38a50/) and NetApp Healthcare Business Development Manager Esteban Rubens (@esteban_aihc) join us to describe how NetApp and Intel can help these worthwhile endeavors.

In this podcast episode, we continue the discussion we had about Iguazio in Episode 237 by talking about how NetApp uses Iguazio (@iguazio) for its Active IQ platform.

Technical Director Shankar Pasupathy (https://www.linkedin.com/in/shankarpasupathy/) and Iguazio CTO Yaron Haviv (@yaronhaviv) join us to break it all down for us and tell us what NetApp features are used to power the Active IQ platform.
