Is it possible to run de-duplication in Data ONTAP 7-mode every 10 minutes?


Greeting everyone,


The de-duplication is scheduled in 7-mode using "sis config -s" command, in which the most frequent schedule would be sun-sat@0-23, meaning de-duplication is run at the very beginning of every hour. To be deterministic, we do not consider schedules using auto@threshold. Here I wonder if it is possbile  to schedule the de-duplication more frequently, say, every 10 minutes assumping each job can be finished in its cycle? In clustered mode, we have "job schedule cron" to customize the schedule, but in 7-mode, is there any equivalent in de-duplication schedule? Any repliy would be appreciated.



Hi there,


This functionality is not available inside 7-mode. You might want to consider setting up ssh keyauth to a RBAC restricted account from a cron script on an external linux system to manually do it.. but.. I wouldn't if I were you. Hourly should be fine - or when SIS hits the 20% change threshhold
