StorNext Gateway Servers must have sufficient memory. When a gateway server does not have sufficient memory, its performance in servicing StorNext LAN I/O requests might suffer. In some cases (particularly on Windows) it might hang.
See Gateway Server/Client Network and Memory Tuning for additional information.
StorNext Gateway Servers must also have sufficient bus bandwidth. As discussed above, the host must have sufficient bus bandwidth to operate the NICs used for StorNext LAN I/O at full speed, while at the same time operating their Fibre Channel HBAs.
Note: Quantum strongly recommends using PCI Express for gateway servers.
