3.An asynchronous replication on an XIV system has been running for some time with no issues. A synch job is scheduled for 4:00 AM, at which point all updated volumes will be replicated to the DR site. By what method are the updates calculated?
A. The “most_recent” snapshot is created on the master, and compared to the “last_replicated” snapshot on the slave.
B. The “most_recent” snapshot is created on the master, and compared to the “last_replicated” snapshot on the master.
C. The timestamps of the block writes to the master are used to determine the writes to be sent; only writes occurring after the last synch job are sent.

8.A worldwide financial company is interested in XIV replication. Their requirement is to replicate data between Chicago to Tokyo on an hourly basis. The data change rate ranges from 50 MB/s to 100 MB/s. Assuming sufficient bandwidth, can the XIV system meet these requirements?
A. No, XIV doesn’t have remote mirroring function.
B. Yes, XIV asynchronous mirroring can support it.
C. Yes, all XIV mirroring technologies can support it.
D. No, none of XIV mirroring technologies can support it.
Answer: B

9.A customer has two 10-module XIV systems, each located at a different site. Synchronous replication is operating between the XIV systems in a bi-directional configuration and using iSCSI as the transport. The sites are linked via Metropolitan Area Network (MAN). A variety of business functions are sharing the site-to-site link with the XIV replication including VoIP, remote desktop, email, and other business related functions. There is currently no prioritization or quality of service being applied to the site-to-site link. At random times during the month, a changing number of
business critical applications are experiencing severe performance degradation. At the times when the performance degradation is occurring, VoIP users are reporting a large number of dropped and lost calls. It has been noted, the performance degradation seems to be worse during month-end processing but there are no measurements to support this assertion. It has also been noted that the performance degradation does not seem to be limited to servers hosted on the XIV systems. The customer has asked if adding additional modules to the XIV systems would resolve the performance issue. Which of the
following items should be monitored to answer the customer’s question?
A. Site-to-site link latency.
B. CPU Utilization for each XIV system module.
C. CPU utilization on performance degraded servers.
D. Fibre Port bandwidth on non-XIV attached servers.
Answer: A

10.An asynchronous replication is created with a schedule of 20 seconds. Due to the amount of data to replicate, an average synch job takes 30 seconds for this design. Which of the following situations will apply?
A. Replication will not lag behind new data creation.
B. Replication will lag behind new data creation by an average of 40 seconds.
C. Replication will lag behind new data creation by an average of 20 seconds.
D. Replication will lag behind new data creation by an average of 30 seconds.
Answer: B

11.A governmental agency has purchased an XIV system to replace an IBM DS4300 that is out of support.
The current host environment includes many AIX hosts with single HBAs. The manager of information technology would like to better understand what options are available for data migration. Which of the following statements describes the support level for migration in this environment?
A. Single attached hosts are not supported with XIV.
B. Hosts cannot be migrated via host-based mirroring.
C. IBM DS4300 is not supported as an XIV data migration source.
D. Single attached hosts can be migrated with XIV data migration.
Answer: D

12.A large corporation has purchased an XIV Storage System to replace an existing fiber channel storage subsystem. Which of the following is an unsupported method to migrate this data?
A. IBM Softek TDMF

Answer: B

13.In asynchronous replication, the “most_recent” snapshot represents:

B. the most recent snapshot taken of the master, existing only on the master XIV.
C. the most recent snapshot taken of the slave, existing on both the master and slave XIV at completion of replication.
D. the most recent snapshot taken of the master, existing on both the master and slave XIV at completion of replication.
