Use FlexGroup QoS ceilings to limit the impacts of test workloads


This recipe will show how to Use ONTAP QoS ceilings to limit the test workload both in IOPS and throughput in ONTAP 9.3.

1. Create a QoS policy with a ceiling of 500IOPS and 2 megabytes/sec (4K block size).

::> qos policy-group create -policy-group test_policy -max-throughput 500IOPS,2MB

 
2. Assign the test FlexGroup to the QoS policy

::> volume modify -volume test_flexgroup -qos-policy-group test_policy

[Job 40] Job succeeded: volume modify succeeded

 
3. Check OnCommand System Manager to verify the test FlexGroup is limited by QoS and is not impacting the production workload.
