Hi,

 

VSM is scheduled for 1 Hr update (7 mode 8.2.x ONTAP). Suppose if a SM update does not finish on time, say for example it took 1:30 minutes to finish. What would happen to the SM update that got triggered after 1hr? how long it will be in queue. Is there a time out? Please advise.

Hi

 

if the VSM is triggered internally (by Cron) or by API/Command it will not queue, it will just abort with "snapmirror busy" message.and not retry again until the next trigger.

if it manged by DFM (On command unified manager). the DFM job will queue until the previous job would finish
