One of my customers has 9513 mds and many blade chaotic cisco fc switches (IBM) . He has about 3500 zones in a zone set which is being fully distributed . He keeps getting memory errors when he makes the change to a zone set and tries to activate it . He is running sanos . Are there any recommendation that might assist him .
Zone Member Configuration Guidelines are even more important to optimize the resource usage on the switch.
Zone config best practice clearly indicates:
"The best practice is to avoid configuring large number of targets and or or large numbers of initiators in a single zone. Such configuration wastes switch resources by provisioning and managing many communicating pairs (initiator-to-initiator or target-to-target) which will never actually communicate with each other. For this reason, single initiator with a single target is the most efficient approach to zoning."
The following guidelines must be considered when creating zone members:
•Configuring only one initiator and one target for a zone provides most efficient use of the switch resources.
•Configuring the same initiator to multiple targets is accepted.
•Configuring multiple initiators to multiple targets is not recommended.
