Smoke on Isilon storage DPX workflow
on Mar 17, 2015 at 8:40:59 pm


Is any in here running smoke 2015, on EMC Isilon? We are working with 2k dpx seq up to 60 min, roughly 200.000 dpx files in a seq.

We are able to run the same on Stornext SAN with old Active Storage, but would like to swap over to 10G.

We are testing a setup now, 4 x X410 nodes, Mac Pro, Atto 10G card, we see performance up to 800 MB/s read, but when playing DPX seq in smoke, we can play fine for maybe 10 min and then suddenly drop frames, playhead in smoke turning blue, green.

Everything on client and Isilon is setup as in EMC white papers for media, and we are working on a NFS share from the Isilon, complete 10G solution on a Cisco 3548 switch 380 nano sec latency.

Any suggestions?
