Can someone explain items in "snapvault snap sched"


Why does "preserve=default,warn=0" show up on sv_vol_s?

Why it there not a "create sv_vol_d 0@-"?

I just created a new snapvault schedule for sv_vol_d

secondary-02> snapvault snap sched -x sv_vol_d sv_daily 30@mon-sun@223

secondary-02> snapvault snap sched

xfer   sv_vol_d sv_daily 30@mon-sun@22 preserve=default,warn=0

create sv_vol_s  0@-

xfer   sv_vol_s sv_daily 30@mon-sun@22

xfer   sv_vol_s sv_weekly 12@sat@23

This is on the primary:

primary-01> snapvault snap sched

create vol_d sv_daily 1@mon-sun@22

create vol_d sv_weekly 1@sat@23

create vol_s sv_daily 1@mon-sun@22

create vol_s sv_weekly 1@sat@23


Can someone explain items in "snapvault snap sched"

Welcome to the community

They are new with DoT 8.0.1 and I had to phone up and ask.  Documented now however.

snapvault snap sched -x -o preserve=on,warn=warn_count vol_name snap_name n@mon-fri@0-23

  • -x—specifies the transfer of new data from all primary paths before creating the SnapVault Snapshot copy.
  • -o—sets user-configurable options for this SnapVault Snapshot copy schedule.
  • preserve—can take one of the following values.
    • on—Creates and preserves the SnapVault archive Snapshot copies until the retention limit is reached. Thereafter, SnapVault does not create archive Snapshot copies.
    • off—Automatically deletes the oldest archived SnapVault Snapshot copy to create a new Snapshot copy when the number of Snapshot copies reaches the configured limit in the SnapVault schedule.
    • default—The preserve setting depends on the global snapvault.preservesnap setting.
  • warn—sends out the warning EMS and SNMP alerts when the remaining number of SnapVault scheduled Snapshot copies for a target reaches the warn_count limit set. This option can have a value from 0 to n - 1.
  • n@mon-fri@0-23 is the number of SnapVault Snapshot copies to preserve along with the list of hours or days and is the schedule to trigger the SnapVault target snapshot creation.

Hope it helps
