You can create a nonshared quality-of-service (QoS) policy?
Customers who want to individually control workloads (volumes, LUNs, or files) with QoS have to create a QoS policy per workload. This results in a proliferation of QoS policies, even though just a few policies such as gold, silver, bronze would meet the customer's needs. With the release of NetApp ONTAP 9.4, a nonshared policy can be created in which each assigned workload gets the policy.
For example, a test application requires three volumes with a QoS ceiling of 1,000 IOPS per volume. Prior to ONTAP 9.4, three QoS policies would be required to achieve this. Starting with ONTAP 9.4, you can create a single nonshared QoS policy to use with all three volumes assigned to the policy.
To create a nonshared QoS policy, complete the following steps in the ONTAP CLI:
1. Create a nonshared QoS policy with a ceiling of 1,000 IOPS.
