SoftLayer Bare Metal server: LSI Logic RAID Controller での CacheCade 構成

More than 5 years have passed since last update.

0. はじめに

前回 のサーバーをオーダーする際に SSD を利用してハードディスク(以降 HDD)の IO 性能を向上させる CacheCade 機能が気になっていました。
そこで、前々回と同様に追加構成されていた 2つの JBOD を削除し、HDD をホットスペアに変更した後、SSD を CacheCade として定義してみます。

注意点:
ここで使用しているサーバーには、SSD をひとつしか構成していなかったので、CacheCade 部分は冗長性の無い RAID0 となり、何らかの原因で SSD に問題が発生すると、書き込もうとしていたデータが失われる可能性が高いと考えられます。
実運用環境では CacheCade 部分も冗長化すべきです

1. 事前準備

以降に述べる操作前に Windows 側で "Server Manager\File and Storage Services\Volumes\Disks" から C: 以外のディスクをオフラインにしておきます(Take Offline)。
その後、JBOD として作成されている 2つの JBOD を削除し、HDD をホットスペアに変更した状態で、状況を確認します。

PS C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\StorCLI> .\storcli64.exe /c0/v2 delete force

PS C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\StorCLI> .\storcli.exe /c0/e252/s2 add hotsparedrive

PS C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\StorCLI> .\storcli64.exe /c0/v1 delete force

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. CashCade の構成

ここからが、今回の新しい内容です。C: ドライブを構成する仮想ドライブ 0 に対して、RAID0 の CascadeCache を定義します。その後、全仮想ドライブの状態を確認します。

PS C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\StorCLI> .\storcli64.exe /c0 add vd cc type=raid0 drives=252:3 wb assignvds=0
Controller = 0
Status = Success
Description = Add VD Succeeded

PS C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\StorCLI> .\storcli64.exe /c0/vall show
-----------------------------------------------------------------
DG/VD TYPE  State Access Consist Cache Cac sCC      Size Name

0/0   RAID1 Optl  RW     Yes     RWBD  RW  ON   931.0 GB RAID1-A
1/1   Cac0  Optl  RW     Yes     RWBD  -   ON  893.75 GB
-----------------------------------------------------------------

SSD が Type Cac0 として利用されていることがわかります。
さらに細かい状態を確認するには、show コマンドに all オプションを指定します。
この出力については、編集せずにそのまま記載します。

PS C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\StorCLI> .\storcli64.exe /c0/vall show all

3. 再起動によるディスク構成の同期

ここで、LSI Logic RAID Controller 側の構成と Windows が認識しているディスク構成を一致させる為に、システムを再起動します。

4. ディスク・パフォーマンスの簡易測定

再起動後、CrystalDiskMark 3.0.4 x64 を使用してディスク・パフォーマンスを簡易測定します。

次に、CacheCade を無効後に、測定してみます。
全仮想ドライブの状況を確認後、CacheCade を削除し、再度全仮想ドライブの状況を確認し、削除できていることが確認できた時点で測定します。

PS C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\StorCLI> .\storcli64.exe /c0/vall show

-----------------------------------------------------------------

PS C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\StorCLI> .\storcli64.exe /c0/v1 delete cachecade
Controller = 0
Status = Success
Description = Disassociation of the Cachecade virtual drive is in progress and can take a few minutes to complete.
The Cachecade virtual drive is deleted after the disassociation is complete.

以下が、CacheCade 無効の状態での簡易測定結果。

測定値にかなりの変化があることがわかります。
念の為、再度 CacheCade を構成後に、再測定してみると、最初の CacheCade 構成での測定値と同様の傾向が見られます。
