Query about flashpool ?


I have one aggregate which is having some performance issue, and i wanted to enable flash pool for that aggregate so, can anyone give me the list of commands to do this task...thanks in advance



Hi Shylendradi,


How many disks you are going to add in to your aggregate ???? And Is your OnTap 7-Mode or Cluster Mode ????


Remeber that there is minimum requirement of Disk to create a FLASH POOL 


FAS3100 and FAS3200 min requirement is 3+2 ( 3 data + 2 Parity )


FAS6000 and FAS6200 is 9+2 ( 9 Data + 2 Parity )




Step 1:- You Need to enable Hybrid on your aggregate in order to have flash pool


7- Mode


aggr options aggr_name hybrid_enabled on


Cluster Mode 


storage aggregate modify -aggregate aggr_name -hybrid_enabled true



Step 2:- Now you can add disks using their DISK ID's , If you have more than one Raid Group you have to choose which RG 




aggr add aggr_name -T SSD 6@100


cluster Mode


storage aggregate add-disks -aggregate aggr-name -disktype SSD -diskcount 3



You can verify If it is enabled as below




aggr status -v aggr_name


Cluster Mode


storage aggregate show -aggregate aggr_name



Once done now you need to create READ or WRITE policies in the Aggregate , Please follow the guide to create policies


Hope it helps 🙂
