  • Patent number: 7554910
    Abstract: The present invention grasps in advance a portion in which traffic is concentrated and which may become a bottleneck and simplifies management of an access path. In a storage network system that forms multiple paths between a large-capacity data storage device and a host computer that employs the data storage device, and transfers data by means of a selected path, access paths are managed by a management server. The management server selects a second access path that can be used as a replacement of a first access path that connects the data storage device with the host computer, and calculates the quantity of traffic on the first access path which is associated with a device disposed on the first access path. Also, the management server calculates a variation of the quantity of traffic on the second access path which is associated with a device disposed on the second access path taking the calculated quantity of traffic into consideration.

  • Publication number: 20070294562
    Abstract: A SAN management method in which a host to which an application should be shifted can be decided so that the influence of data transfer load is eliminated as extremely as possible. To shift an application A operating on a host A to another host, a management server performs a data load conversion process S to predict data transfer load on the SAN in the case where the application will be shifted to a host B or C. The management server also performs a bottleneck analyzing process on each resource on the SAN. The management server further performs a destination host decision process on the basis of a result of the bottleneck analyzing process to decide a non-bottlenecked host as a destination host to which the application A should be shifted.
