Network traffic generated by OnCommand Insight

The network traffic that OnCommand Insight generates, the amount of processed data traversing the network, and the load that OnCommand Insight places on devices differ based on many factors.

The traffic, data, and load differ across environments based on the following factors:

The raw configuration data that OnCommand Insight collects can vary significantly.

The following example illustrates how the configuration data can vary and how traffic, data, and load are affected by many configuration factors. For example, you might have two arrays each having 1,000 disks:

These arrays each have 1,000 disks and 1,000 logical volumes. They might be physically identical in the amount of rack space they consume in the data center, and they might even be running the same firmware, but the second array is much more complex in its configuration than the first array.
