How Do I Determine a Proper Bandwidth for a Remote Replication or an Inter-Device LUN Copy?
Solution
Bandwidth refers to the amount of data that can be transferred over a channel per unit time, typically expressed in bit/s. The bandwidth of a computer network refers to the maximum data rate on the network, namely, the number of bits transferred per second. Set a bandwidth according to the following rules:
• The bandwidth must meet actual service needs and cannot be greater than the actual network bandwidth.
• If the current service load is heavy, you can decrease the bandwidth for a remote replication or an inter-device LUN copy based on actual needs. Otherwise, existing services are adversely affected.
