A closer look at ATTO 360 Tuning, Monitoring and Analytics Software
We previewed ATTO 360™
Tuning, Monitoring and Analytics Software at IBC 2019 and the response was very
positive. Everyone who saw it at IBC wanted
a copy right then, however, ATTO 360 will not be available until December of
What is it about ATTO
360 that has everyone excited? Let’s
take a closer look and find out.
Tuning, Monitoring and Analytics Software is an all-purpose tool for Ethernet
network optimization designed to unlock the true potential of ATTO FastFrame™ and Thunderlink® adapters. We applied our 30-plus years of expertise in
storage networking and consolidated all of the tools and techniques our
engineering team uses everyday into a simple, easy-to-use management interface.
As the title
implies, ATTO 360 gives users access to features and settings that allow network
optimization from every angle. Optimization doesn’t end with setting
adjustments; you have to know what needs adjustment and what changes those
adjustments make. That’s why ATTO 360
not only includes tuning, it includes monitoring to capture data from the
network and analytics that makes full use of that data for evaluation and
tuning, 360 includes a one-click setup function with pre-configured performance
tuning profiles for macOS®, Windows®, and Linux®. The profiles cover select performance goals,
like media and entertainment workflows, high throughput, low latency, and more.
You can tune for both file-level (NAS) and block-level (Fabrics) storage. In all, over 25 individual tuning settings
can be adjusted, including buffer settings, MTU sizes, IRQ, and NUMA, to name
just a few.
ATTO 360 incorporates several networking utilities in one central location. It will display OS name and version number,
CPU chip brand, processor type, model, CPU speed, number of cores, NUMA mode
configurations and monitor several other system settings.
functionality is effectively a triage center for connectivity issues with
intuitive features that help to keep the network running efficiently and will
pro-actively fix problems before they occur.
ATTO 360 will analyze the network, make suggestions to increase
efficiency and identify hardware problems.
360 scans for frequently recorded and troublesome errors that are not
always obvious, like resource-robbing memory buffer issues.
As you can see, ATTO
360 is poised to become an indispensable tool for not only system architects, but
also anyone who needs a thoroughly optimized Ethernet network. Follow ATTO on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram to keep up to date with latest on ATTO 360.
