I just wiped out a shelf in hopes of adding it to another shelf to create one big aggregate for performance and space needs. From what I've seen, the way we had it setup is not the most ideal way (one aggregate per shelf).
I currently have these aggregates:
Aggr State Status Options
aggr0 online raid_dp, aggr root, nosnap=on, raidsize=18
aggr1 online raid_dp, aggr nosnap=on, raidsize=16
aggr2 online raid_dp, aggr nosnap=on, raidsize=12
aggr3 offline raid_dp, aggr raidsize=12
They're the DSM14K12 (think that's right)... the 14 drive SATA shelves. What is the proper way to do this? I see it says raidsize=12 in aggr2. Does that mean if I try and combine the drives from aggr3 it will create another raidgroup? Is this good or should I try and change the raid size first and then add the disks? Is it better to have one big aggregate/raid size or one aggregate with two raids?
Sorry if I didn't say it right, still learning the NetApp stuff.
