Stop or kill a netapp command

Is there any command which can be used to kill netapp commands which are issued ? We have a JAVA application which issues commands using NMSDK and some of the commands take a very long time.

Are there any commands which can stop such commands run by the application?

For Cluster mode there is the job-stop API and the 'job stop' command.

Re: Stop or kill a netapp command

Thanks. Is there anything for 7- mode. We are running snapdiff/snapshot.

I don't know of any way to kill a 7-Mode process.

There are a number of 'stop' APIs for some specific operations.

 

The 'snapdiff' API has been a problem in the past.

It takes some time to execute with high file count, given that it has to walk the file system and look at time stamps on the files.

 

There used to be a race condition where it would chew up too many memory buffers.

You can search for the BURTs using the bug report tool.

 

We discuss these issues in our SnapProtect ILT course.

I would implement snapdiff API calls with care.
