Data Center Analytics Software Dramatically Improves Workload Characterization and Issue Resolution Time

Data Center Analytics Software Dramatically Improves Workload Characterization and Issue Resolution Time
WorkloadIntelligence DataAgent provides tools to Data Center engineers to boost Data Center performance.

Teledyne Lecroy, the worldwide-leader for validation and analytics solutions for solid state storage, introduces the WorkloadIntelligence DataAgent, a software tool that easily captures production system and workload data in an automated fashion and makes it available to WorkloadIntelligence Analytics software, where it can be analyzed. This allows data center engineers to dramatically reduce time to characterize and resolve issues, optimize data flow and boost datacenter performance.

Data center engineers are constantly challenged to improve data center performance to give their companies an edge over the competition. Improving performance requires understanding how applications interact with the storage infrastructure, something that has always been a data center challenge. Incorporating Solid State Storage devices helps boost performance but adds to the challenge as they behave differently than mechanically based hard disk drives (HDDs). Data center engineers need tools that enable them to quickly analyze, assess and tune system performance across all types of storage hardware.

WorkloadIntelligence DataAgent software enables data center engineers to find system, application and database latencies affecting performance.  It can identify sub-optimized processes and ensure applications utilize and allocate CPU cores efficiently.  Additionally, engineers can tune application and Linux block layers to characterize and improve current and future workload performance. Designed with NVMe in mind, DataAgent software lets users capture more than just the IO packets. It also captures administrative commands, so data center engineers have a more wholistic view of how their system performs across a range of events. To complement the wide-ranging capture function, user-defined filters and triggers help to isolate the relevant trace event data even in high volume traffic.  DataAgent’s modularity allows users to customize it for desired system elements to keep system overhead extremely low.  It can currently be configured with four different plug-ins:

  1. Storage Lite Collector: Captures Linux block events (blktrace replacement)
  2. System Statistics Collector: Captures CPU, memory and network events
  3. Storage Pro Collector: Captures other storage (ie. NVMe Admin Commands)
  4. SVF Collector: Captures events from our OakGate SSD Test Platform (i.e. NVMe Zones)

Teledyne LeCroy will be demonstrating WorkloadIntelligence™ DataAgent and Analytics at Data Center World 2021 in Orlando, Florida on Aug 16-19, 2021.
