EMC Symmetrix Optimizer
A Detailed Review
This white paper presents the EMC® Symmetrix® Optimizer product and methodology. Symmetrix Optimizer is an automated engine that runs on the Symmetrix system. It measures, plans, and executes long-term load balancing on the back end (physical disks) of the Symmetrix array. In many situations, Symmetrix Optimizer can improve response time and throughput performance by 20 percent or more. This white paper focuses on concepts of back-end optimization, the Optimizer analysis process, control parameters, and various configuration requirements.
