Check for client or network issues

Contributors netapp-manini

When the clients that are connected to volumes on a cluster increase their I/O requests, the cluster must work harder to meet the demand. The increased demand on the cluster can put a component in contention, increase the latency of workloads that use it, and trigger an event in Unified Manager.

On the Event details page, the System Diagnosis section displays the top volume workloads using the component in contention. If you know which client is accessing a particular volume, you can go to the client to determine whether the client hardware or an application is not operating as expected or is doing more work than usual. You might need to contact your client administrator or application vendor for assistance.

You can check your network infrastructure to determine whether there are hardware issues, bottlenecks, or competing workloads that might have caused I/O requests between the cluster and connected clients to perform slower than expected. You might need to contact your network administrator for assistance.
