ITL Examples

  • Divide a host to specify one ITL (initiator:target:lun) combination responsible for the application and another ITL combination responsible for the backup operations.

  • For a backup operation, select only the target port and LUNs to which all back-ups are sent. VW discovers which ports and LUNs are communicating with each other and build the entity for you.

  • You want a quick way to configure an application entity but do not know its downstream resources. You can create an application entity by specifying only the initiator port WWN.

  • If you create a combination with a * notation but do not have a performance probe monitoring the traffic, no metric information is be stored. This example could occur when an administrator wants to provision application entities before the performance probe is deployed.
