Subsystem Throughput in Average Gbit/s over 2 minute intervals

Blue Waters transfer network traffic through Import/Export, High Performance Storage Systems (HPSS), and Login nodes through a core Ethernet switch. This comprises all of the data and communication into and out of the system in addition to data that is transferred between these nodes through normal system operation. The following chart shows, from the perspective of the Ethernet switch, either received (Rx) Gigabits per second or transmitted (Tx) Gigabits per second. This is a summation of all node Ethernet traffic.

Throughput Totals (last 24 Hrs) Rx - 269 TB, Tx - 25.3 TB

 

Uplink Throughput in Average Gbit/s over 2 minute intervals

Traffic sourced from or destined to Blue Waters traverses the uplink to the NCSA backbone network. From there, the traffic can reach other NCSA resources or external resources. The following chart shows, from the perspective of the Ethernet switch, either received (Rx) Gigabits per second or transmitted (Tx) Gigabits per second out of the blue waters system.

Throughput Totals (last 24 Hrs) Rx - 798 TB, Tx - 0.10 PB

 

WAN Average Utilization over 2 minute intervals

Traffic leaving NCSA traverses the four 100Gbps and 10Gbps peerings to the Research and Education (R&E) networks providing diverse network paths to the many users of Blue Waters. The following chart shows, from the perspective of the NCSA east and west exit routers, either received (Rx) utilization or transmitted (Tx) utilization at NCSA.
