Overview

The Storage Acceleration Dashboard (Not Available in SIOS iQ free edition):

  • Provides the ability to improve performance
  • Makes the performance more predictable
  • Offloads network traffic
  • Offloads network attached storage
  • Improves the density of virtualization environment

Storage Acceleration enables you to quickly identify the most appropriate workloads to cache. SIOS iQ displays the VM candidates in the Storage Acceleration Dashboard when the specified policy values are met or exceeded. Policy values are global and apply to all VMs in all environments.

There are two parameters that are used to define the Storage Acceleration VM candidates; Read Ratio and Cache Hit Ratio. Both parameter thresholds must be met in order for a resulting candidate to be displayed in the Storage Acceleration grid.

Read Ratio

  • Storage Acceleration VMs are identified in the Storage Acceleration Dashboard when the Read Ratio value for a particular VM is equal to or greater than the value set in the policy. The default Read Ratio is 70%.

Cache Hit Ratio

  • Storage Acceleration VMs are identified in the Storage Acceleration Dashboard when the Cache Hit Ratio value for a particular VM is equal to or greater than the value set in the policy. The default Cache Hit Ratio is 50%.

To change the parameter defaults please refer to Storage Acceleration Policies.
