Re: Snapvault lag value

Hi Vinay,

     In the status -l output the lag you have is 2 hours, 9 mins, and 58 seconds since the last replication completed.

You can verify this yourself by running "snapvault status -l" multiple times in a row.  Using the "-l" flag is a long output with more detail so in the normal snapvault status output you will not see seconds, only when you specify the "-l" flag.

Hi Vinay ,

Lag value is  updated snapvault/snapmirror timestamp value.(It depends on the schedule which you have set in snapvault.conf file).

Re: Snapvault lag value

Hi Vinay,

Here Lag in 2:09:58 (hh:mm:ss) indicates the time difference between the data currently on the primary storage system and the latest data stored on the secondary storage system; that is, the difference between the current time and the time stamp of the Snapshot copy last successfully transferred to the secondary storage system.

The lag time will always be at least as much as the duration of the last successful transfer, unless the clocks on the source and destination are not synchronized (in which case it could even be negative)

Regards,

Hari.

Re: Snapvault lag value

great thanks a lot, I have one more doubt while running the "snapmirror status -l" there is one more option as "Last Transfer Duration: 00:00:04" is it somthing like last file mirroring duration?

Re: Snapvault lag value

Yes it shows last update time duration.(it took 00:00:04 to complete the update)

" Last transfer duration " field shows the elapsed time for the last successful transfer to complete . If the transfer is failed and restarted, the time included time waiting to restart the transfer. If a transfer aborted and was retried from the beginning, it includes only the time required for the final successful attempt.
