No, we can't. Especially since you give us NO details, tell us what your level of skill is, what resources you have to work with, etc. We can't guess. All we know from your other thread is that you're using RHEL 7 and aren't paying for it. This alone is going to make things harder, since you will not be able to easily install/upgrade software via yum, but will have to compile everything manually and/or install RPM's manually one by one, to resolve dependencies.

A broad project idea would be to just install and configure iSCSI, and measure performance during different transfer loads (i.e. large files vs. lots of small files, multiple concurrent users vs. single, etc.)

I have done a course in RHEL7. Yes I don't pay for RHEL7, but it doesn't mean that I can't install any software via yum. I've got "Packages" folder in my Red Hat system which contains all the softwares required for working with it. Hence, it's no more harder for me to install any package.

No, it doesn't contain 'all the softwares'...you have ONE source, which is your installation media. That's it..you're missing ALL of the other sources and repositories, which you get when you PAY.

Why you continue to argue about why you don't have to pay for RHEL is a mystery. You do, period...you don't get those updates unless you pay for them. And go back to "why don't you just use CentOS 7 instead, which is TOTALLY FREE, identical to RHEL, and gives you that access" is a further mystery. You are not doing yourself any favors by using RHEL 'for free'...you are just making your situation harder.

RHEL isn't free if you are subscribed to it and right now I'm not in requirement of all of its features. It's my personal choice to use Red Hat and, so have done course in it. Hence, there is no chance to shift to CentOS 7.

Hence, you will not have the flexibility to do things you would otherwise. Hence, you don't have access to these 'features', which you will probably NEED to accomplish whatever project you're after. Hence, you can either take the suggestion given to you above for a project, or come up with your own. Good luck doing it with a system that isn't patched/up-to-date.

Here's a simple project for one week. Set up a server with a ramdisk exported over iSCSI. Connect it to an iSCSI client over 1G ethernet and compare the speed to local disk on the client.

I've used iscsi for backing up when programs don't normally let you use networked resources. Might set it up.

I assume this is homework.
