DD for creating test files

Hi Gurus,

 

I have a 7-mode volume and would like to fill the volume with some test files.

How can I use DD command to create say 10 files each of  1GB (filled with zeros. may be) using NetApp CLI?

Re: DD for creating test files

File editing inside ONTAP is very limited - you can't do IO redirection, which would be a requirement for using "dd" to fill the files. Best choice is to mount a volume via NFS and run the "dd" command against it.
