Aggregate performance issue after adding disks

After adding 4 disks to an aggregate one of them is at a constant 100% utilization, currently running a reallocate.

The question is why is only that one disk at 100% while the other ones that were added ~25% along with the rest of the disks in the raid group?

Current status of the aggregate is redirect, which is expected I guess.

Any suggestions?

Re: Aggregate performance issue after adding disks

Here are the stats of that aggregate from statit - 1b.89 is at 100 , 1b.88 2c.29 and 2b.59 were the other disks that were added

Re: Aggregate performance issue after adding disks

Hi Mark

So the 1b.89 disk ins't the Parity drive ?

Cf with sysconfig -r ... Maybee

Re: Aggregate performance issue after adding disks

It is a data disk, none of the other disks are showing any issues like

this

data 1b.89 1b 5 9 FC:B - FCAL 15000

272000/557056000 280104/573653840

Re: Aggregate performance issue after adding disks

Support had me fail a disk, which leveled the io across the raid group

Re: Aggregate performance issue after adding disks

That's definitely one approach -- if happens in the future I'd look at the reallocate command as well (at the physical level).

Re: Aggregate performance issue after adding disks

Did start a reallocate after adding the disks, was going very slow

The suggestion to prevent this in the future was - simplified

1. Try to free up space in aggregate <90% and clean up snapshots - This one was at 91.3%

2. Run reallocate before adding disks.

3. Add less disks at a time

4. Run reallocate after adding disks

Very helpful to know what worked in real life....thanks for posting back.
