add disk spare to aggregate

Hello,

I have 3 aggregate with 3 spares,

Im wondering if i can use the disk spare and assign to one of aggregate for additional capacity, is this possibl? what are the risks?

please see attached.

Re: add disk spare to aggregate

It is possible but could cause a slowdown in performance depending on how many disks are in the aggregate... You need at least 1 spare (2 is better) so adding 1 or 2 drives isn't typical best practice.  We prefer to add a complete raid group at a time to an aggregate when growing it...  Adding less drives can cause those new drives to run hot (higher utilization as they are written to first)... there is a "reallocation" command that can layout volumes but that takes some time and has some limitations (if running dedup you need to be on 8.1 to run realllocate with dedup and no reallocate if running compression).  It really depends on how many drives you have in the aggr now and the layout and how many you plan to add.  Also it looks like you have 500GB in the aggregate now and are going to add 1TB spares... ONTAP supports mixed sizes in an aggr or raid group, but isn't something I like to do... the bigger drive will swap with one of the smaller parity drives so you don't gain anything on the first drive added of the bigger drive size then additional larger drives can be added as data so some diminishing returns on usable along with the performance hit you may have.

If you email the output of "sysconfig -r" and "sysconfig -V" (second command can be determined from the first but easier to see layout of raid groups this way) the community will give several opinions on layout...some may be different but good to see the different opinions and best practices used by others.

Re: add disk spare to aggregate

Forgot to also ask what ontap version and controller model. Also all 32bit aggrs? I will go over the layout in a bit

Re: add disk spare to aggregate

With 32-bit aggregates this is a reasonable setup although it may have made sense to combine aggr0 and aggr1 together since the same 500GB drives and more spindle I/O in that aggregate. Once created you can’t combine without destroying them so likely not an option. The separate aggr2 with 1TB drives makes sense to have a new aggr with all the same size drives.

For spares, I prefer 2 of each drive type…that way maintenance garage is used (where a failed drive is tested and put back in the spares pool if it passes diagnostics), but on a smaller system going with 1 does make sense. For 1TB you only have one spare so should not use that one. For 500GB you have 2 spares and I’d leave those alone too…although you could use one of those drives for aggr0 or aggr1, but you would have a single disk bottleneck once you add it…which depending on current I/O may affect performance. A perfstat or statit over time (“priv set advanced ; statit -b” then wait a while and “priv set advanced ; statit -enr”) will show current disk utilization and you can interpret what may happen with a single drive add… the old best practice was at least 3 drives at a time and now we follow adding a full raid group at a time. If you need to grow an aggr, it would be best to add the full raid group and not a single drive. I would keep the current layout as is but depends if you can get more disks and how desperate the situation is for space.

Re: add disk spare to aggregate

these are 32 bit aggregates, FAS3020 7.3.7 DOT

Re: add disk spare to aggregate

If i really need to add spare disk, let say 500GB how much data will be added to the current aggr1? sorry im no NetApp expert.

by the way here is the statit result

                       Disk Statistics
        ut% is the percent of time the disk was busy.
        xfers is the number of data-transfer commands issued.
        xfers = ureads + writes + cpreads + greads + gwrites
        chain is the average number of 4K blocks per command.
        usecs is the average disk round-trip time per 4K block.
