iSCSI Optimization Configuration Examples
This section contains an example of how to configure iSCSI optimization on
a stack of switches that are between a disk array and servers.
Configuring iSCSI Optimization Between Servers and a Disk Array
Figure 16-6 illustrates a stack of three PowerConnect M6220, M6348, M8024,
and M8024-k switches connecting two servers (iSCSI initiators) to a disk
array (iSCSI targets).
An iSCSI application running on the management unit (the top unit in the
diagram) has installed priority filters to ensure that iSCSI traffic that is part
of these two sessions receives priority treatment when forwarded in hardware.
