The Isilon Node Layer

The tests mapped to this layer help administrators to find out the following useful metrics:

  • the current status of the nodes;
  • the load balancing capability of each disk on the node;
  • the throughput of network and disk drives of the node;
  • the load received by the nodes through each protocol;
  • the rates at which the data was transmitted and received to perform the protocol operations.
