Buffer Credits Chart

sanAlytics provides an extensive array of services to support buffer credit analysis.

The running buffer credit values for each side of a link (port) is maintained and displayed in the Trace View for each event.

The performance view tracks the high water and low water marks for the buffer credit as they are allocated and consumed.

Additional metrics provided for analysis of buffer credit starvation includes the following parameters:

  • R_Rdy to SOF Time
  • EOF to SOF Time
  • SOF to R_RDY Time

All of these values, including the buffer credit values may be displayed on a Combined Performance View to see these values as a function of time.
