OCI views

Spencer_M

I am trying to get a comprehensive list of storage on my 7-mode array using OCI. My question is.... what's the difference between the VOLUME and INTERNAL VOLUME views within OCI?

Looks like the VOLUME view lists as the name suggests, volumes. The INTERNAL VOLUME view displays the underlying luns.

Volume in OCI-speak is a block device - "LUN" in Ontap-speak, "Volume" in SMI-S-speak, etc.

 

Internal Volume in OCI-speak is generally found on NAS-capable platforms - 7 mode Flex + traditional Volume, VNX File "file systems, etc

Internal volume = FlexVol. Volume = LUN. Kind of backwards I know.
