limitation on volume count on filer
2016-01-05 11:29 AM
As per the data from Hardware universe.. each filer has a limitation on number of volumes that it can support .. eg 1000 for Singe node which makes 500 for the same when
a HA pair/cluster is created...
Kindly help me with the following questions .. considering that there is 2 node and single vserver cluster mode setup
- What is the maximum number of volumes that can be created in the vserver considering that my each node can support upto 1000 ?
- What will happen during the Storage Failover if the voume count exceeds the limit ...? Does the extra volumes go offline ?
- If the volumes go down.. is there any way that we can select which volumes have to be made offline during Storage failover ..?
Thanks in advance..

Failover allows the max of both controllers in the ha-pair so all set there...there could be a degradation in performance depending on if the controllers are running over 50% or total over 100% together. SVMs are across all nodes, so the node limit applies the same... you can have all volumes in one svm or two svms, etc..
