ISCSI CTL configuration

#1

Post by PCK » 02 Sep 2019 12:20

Hello everyone,

I've been running my pools for some time with an ISCSI ISTGT configuration.
I'm configuring a new pool and I wish to move to an ISCSI CTL configuration.

There are so many configuration settings in CTL I'd like to set this up for the best performance and reliability.

I've done my searching and I have not seen any complete guides that cover CTL setup in Xigmanas specifically.

If you know of a guide some place, please point it out or if your particular configuration has been road tested and you get good performance from it, and you don't mind sharing, please do.

Thanks in advance

PCK

Thanks, I had read through "Migrate from istgt to ctl" many times but never saw the displayed screen shots so I was unable to see the detail. I just now realized, when I was searching before I was never logged in so obviously the screen shots were hidden, my bad......

That looks like the detail I was hoping to find, thanks.
