WAFL architecture

Hi All,

I am a bit curious to know  wafl would treat data if the same volume is shared as a share and the same volume contains luns. How WAFL treats Block Based I data or i/os.

Re: WAFL architecture

To WAFL a LUN is just another file within a volume - hence in theory you can share a volume containing some LUNs over CIFS and/or NFS (you'll see files with .lun extension)

However is is not recommended & rather pointless as you can't really get into LUNs data other than going via your host-layer file system & block-level protocol (iSCSI or FC).
