This statistic shows OISP bytes/sec transferred between OISP clients and the appliance. Bytes statistics can be broken down by client, filename, database name, database filetype, database function, share, and project.
OISP bytes/sec can be used as an indication of OISP load, and can be viewed on the dashboard.
Breakdowns by database filetype and function allow database and storage administrators to correlate database statistics with storage statistics. This provides much better diagnosability to narrow down an abrupt rise not only to a particular database, but also to the database function creating the increase and the filetype associated with it.
The best way to improve performance is to eliminate unnecessary work, which may be identified through the client and filename breakdowns, and the filename hierarchy view. Client and especially filename breakdowns can very expensive in terms of storage and execution overhead. Therefore, it is not recommended to permanently enable these breakdowns on a busy production appliance.
These breakdowns can be combined to produce powerful statistics. For example, use “Protocol: OISP bytes per second for client hostname.example.com broken down by filename” to view which files a particular client is accessing.
