    Working with disk groups The disk group folder for an HP P6000/EVA storage system includes the default disk group, other disk groups that have been created, plus a folder of ungrouped physical disks that are not members of any disk group.
  • Page 26: General Guidelines

    Solid state drive disk type. All physical drives must be solid state drives (SSD). This disk type provides first tier, very high performance and reliability. Disk type support varies with HP XCS controller software versions. The following table summarizes support and typical uses.
  • Page 27: Disk Group Capacity

    If you change the occupancy alarm default values, the critical alarm level must be greater than the warning alarm level. NOTE: HP P6000 Command View 9.x and earlier have a warning alarm level only. The default value is 90%. Disk group capacity Disk group capacity (in GB) is presented differently for different versions of HP XCS controller software.
  • Page 28: Redundancy (Vraid) Levels

    Vraid level on arrays running XCS 10000000 or later, see 32). NOTE: HP strongly recommends that you use Vraid6 if you are using disk drives with a physical capacity of 1TB or greater. Vraid levels are: Vraid0. Is optimized for speed and disk space utilization, but provides no redundancy.
  • Page 29: Virtual Disks

    In HP P6000 Command View 9.3 or later, when a LUN is provisioned with Vraid0 redundancy, the HP P6000 Command View GUI displays an R0 icon on the LUN. If you select Vraid0 when creating a LUN HP P6000 Command View displays a confirmation window to verify that redundancy is not required.
  • Page 30 Do not lock a virtual disk that was created by another user or by an application. ◦ Besides adding a lock owner comment, HP recommends that you use the virtual disk's general comment field to clearly indicate the owner and purpose of the lock. This provides a more permanent record about the lock, should the lock be disabled later.
  • Page 31: Hosts

    P6000 controller (01 or 02). Working with hosts in HP P6000 Command View The hosts folder for an HP P6000/EVA storage system displays all hosts that have been explicitly added to the HP P6000 Command View interface. You can further organize hosts into subfolders that you create and name.
  • Page 32: Presentation

    It is possible to create and present a virtual disk in a single step; however, HP recommends that you create a virtual disk first, then present it after it is created. This leaves HP P6000 Command View free to perform other tasks.
  • Page 33 A storage administrator is planning to create two virtual disks for two new host applications. His HP P6000 storage system currently has a total capacity of 10 TB, with 6 TB unused disk space. The administrator determines that each host application initially requires 2 TB of disk space, but eventually, the host applications will require 4 TB of space.
  • Page 34: Replicating Storage

    5 Replicating storage Replication is an industry-standard term for making copies or backing up data. With HP P6000/EVA storage systems, entire virtual disks can be replicated locally or remotely using a variety of methods: HP P6000 Business Copy (local replication). Make local copies of virtual disks using snapclones, snapshots, mirrorclones and preallocated containers.
  • Page 35: Snapshots

    Snapclones cannot be created when the disk to be replicated is: A snapshot A disk that has a snapshot or mirrorclone In the process of normalizing (snapclone in progress) or being deleted (P6000 Command View running XCS 10000000 or earlier) See also, “Optimizing snap creation”...
  • Page 36: Mirrorclones

    If you do not know the capacity required for a demand-allocated snapshot, HP recommends that you reserve a minimum of 10% of the capacity of the source virtual disk times the number of snapshots of the source disk. For example, if you have two demand-allocated snapshots of a 500 GB virtual disk, you would reserve 100 GB (500 GB x 10% x 2) of usable capacity.
  • Page 37 For more information, see the HP P6000 Replication Solutions Manager Release Notes. A mirrorclone cannot be created if the intended source virtual disk is: A snapshot or has any snapshots. Has any snapclones that are in the process of being normalized (P6000 Command View 10000000 or earlier). See also, “Optimizing snap creation”...
  • Page 38: Containers

    Mirrorclone states The following mirrorclone states are reported by the replication manager. Mirrorclone state Fractured Restore in progress Synchronized or normalized Sync in progress Detached Containers A container is disk space that is preallocated for later use as a snapclone, a snapshot, or a mirrorclone.
  • Page 39: Optimizing Replication Performance

    (not by host I/O activity). HP recommends that you plan the migration of virtual disks in advance because migration involves the creation of a mirrorclone in the background which can compete with other I/O activity.
  • Page 40: Minimizing Snapclone Workloads

    The performance impact of an improperly sized (in a performance sense) snapshot or snapclone can cause HP P6000 Continuous Access to suspend replication. System and application performance and availability can be improved when replication is suspended as a planned event rather than an unplanned disruption.
  • Page 41: Hp P6000 Continuous Access Software

    Working with DR groups in HP P6000 Command View The Data Replication folder for an HP P6000/EVA storage system displays the DR groups on that array, and indicates if their DR mode (role) is currently as a source or as a destination.
  • Page 42: Creating Dr Groups

    (only a portion of the display is shown) Creating DR groups You can use server-based HP P6000 Command View to create DR groups, remotely replicate virtual disks from one storage system to another, and perform actions. Array-based HP P6000 Command View only allows you to view DR groups that are on that array.
  • Page 43 One or more exchanges are used to transfer data and an additional exchange is used for command information. The HP-FC Protocol requires all frames within the transfer to be delivered in order. Therefore, if HP-FC Protocol is used in the fabric, the fabric must use SID/DID routing.
  • Page 44: Maintaining And Managing Hp P6000/Eva Storage Systems

    When you install an array, it appears as an uninitialized storage system. Initializing an array makes it ready for use, binds the controllers as an operational pair (for models other than the HP EVA4400 and P6x00), and establishes preliminary data structures on the array. Initializing also sets up the first disk group, which is called the default disk group.
  • Page 45: User-Initiated Service Mode

    The user-initiated service mode does not change the functionality of HP P6000 Command View, nor its response to events. This mode is solely for HP P6000 Command View interaction with external HP support tools. When user-initiated service mode for a storage system is active: Automated support calls to HP regarding the storage system are stopped.
