Dell Equalogic's MEM

Hey guys,

So I stumbled upon this inline tool for the Dell Equalogic, a tool called MEM. Have any of you guys that use Equalogic vouch for this tool's benefits between VMware and the array?

Always looking for ways to improve performance, be nice to know if MPIO has a friend to mingle with. icon_bounce.gif

Found this article on the topic, but it's slated for ESXi 4.1, curious though what you guys think from your experiences.

    I won't promise that you'll get those numbers, but in general, using the multipathing driver from the SAN vendor does allow for an increase in performance. I have a NCM upgrade scheduled for a Nimble client here in the nera future.

    Ya if I get 5% I'd be happy. Always look to improve with little to no CAPx.
