This IBMAr RedbooksAr publication highlights TS7700 Virtualization Engine Release 2.0. It is intended for system architects who want to integrate their storage systems for smoother operation. The IBM Virtualization Engine TS7700 offers a modular, scalable, and high-performing architecture for mainframe tape virtualization for the IBM System zAr environment. It integrates 3592 Tape Drives, high-performance disks, and the new IBM System pAr server into a storage hierarchy. This storage hierarchy is managed by robust storage management firmware with extensive self-management capability. It includes the following advanced functions: Policy management to control physical volume pooling Cache management Dual copy, including across a grid network Copy mode control The TS7700 Virtualization Engine offers enhanced statistical reporting. It also includes a standards-based management interface for TS7700 Virtualization Engine management. The new IBM Virtualization Engine TS7700 Release 2.0 introduces the next generation of TS7700 Virtualization Engine servers for System z tape: IBM Virtualization Engine TS7720 Server Model VEB IBM Virtualization Engine TS7740 Server Model V07 These Virtualization Engines are based on IBM POWER7Ar technology. They offer improved performance for most System z tape workloads compared to the first generation of TS7700 Virtualization Engine servers.Peer to Peer Activity The Peer to Peer Activity report shown in Example 9-19 provides various performance metrics of ... This report allows, for example, the analysis of subsystem performance during peak grid network activity, such as determining the maximum delay during the batch window. ... by copy activity The amount of data (MB) copied from other clusters (inbound data) to the cluster on which the report was ...
