Optimizing NDMP communication performance

You can optimize the performance of the NDMP socket through which the storage system communicates with the DMA.

About this task

You can optimize performance for either minimal transmission delay or throughput. By default, the performance is optimized for overall throughput. If the communication performance is optimized for minimal transmission delay, the queued packets are sent immediately.


  1. To optimize NDMP communication performance, enter the following command:
    options ndmpd.tcpnodelay.enable {on|off}

    on optimizes for minimal transmission delay.

    off optimizes for overall throughput.
