FabricPool functionality on openstack swift

Hi

 

Im working with fabricpool and openstack swift with S3 Middleware is working great but i see a behaivor that i wish to understand.

 

i have a volume configured tiering policy with snapshot-only  during random times on day i saw the netapp is performing a lot of GET from the object storage

 

my questions is ?

1.Why is performing a lot of GETS if the policy is snapshot-only and nobody is performing a restore of snapshots?

2.if the object storage is down and i have snapshot-only policy can affect the access to the data on the performance tier?

 

thanks

Re: FabricPool functionality on openstack swift

can you share the output of the below

volume show-footprint -vserver  vserver-name -volume vol-name

 

1.Why is performing a lot of GETS if the policy is snapshot-only and nobody is performing a restore of snapshots?

My Guess --  If the local tier is at >90% capacity, cold data is read directly from the cloud tier without being written back
to the local tier. By preventing cold data write-backs on heavily utilized local tiers, FabricPool preserves
the local tier for active data. 

2.if the object storage is down and i have snapshot-only policy can affect the access to the data on the performance tier?

-- If for any reason connectivity to the cloud is lost, the FabricPool local tier remains online, but applications
receive an error message when attempting to get data from the cloud tier.

--Cold blocks that exist exclusively on the cloud tier remain unavailable until connectivity is reestablished.

Hi,

only 9% of data is in your S3 bucket.

 

only Volume Footprint for bin1: 393.3GB
