Install Linux Unified Host Utilities and optimize I/O performance
Linux Unified Host Utilities software includes the
sanlun utility, a NetApp LUN reporting tool that you can use to display information about storage cluster nodesand Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) that are on the Linux host. You must also enable the correct server profile on the Linux host to optimize NetApp storage performance.
You must have identified the supported Linux Unified Host Utilities version for your configuration by using the Interoperability Matrix. You must also have the
tuned package, which is part of your Linux OS distribution and contains the
tuned-adm command, which you use to set the server profile on the host.
Download the supported Linux Unified Host Utilities version from the NetApp Support Site.
