We request improvement in the design of the resilience of the IBMi that we currently use in the banbif bank; This is due to the constant degradation incidents that we have had over time; which was caused by faulty tranceivers with low power (tranceiver factory error in brocade switches).
Currently there are 4 access paths to the disks (2 redundancy) and what the design does when finding low power transceivers is to keep trying access because it does not see it as error; therefore it keeps trying and generates degradation in the system; therefore we suggest improving this design and seeing how it recognizes this low power error and the system use the other access paths (closing this faulty one until transceiver change is made). The idea is to have a resilient system for these types of scenarios.
