snapmirror lag issue

Is there a quickest way of sychronizing Main Site to DR Site when lag is way too high after link between these two sites has been down for some time?

Re: snapmirror lag issue

speed of replication depends on

1. amount of data to be transferred

you can check it on your source with command 

::>volume snapshot show-delta 

and compare the difference between the last transferred snapshot with active file system

This may give a rough expectation of how much data is going to be transferred per volume

2. link bandwidth between  sites.

there is a workaround to establish a baseline copy between two sites with a poor link using an external USB drive
