  • Page 25: About Volume Cache Options

    You can optimize a volume for sequential reads or streaming data by changing its read-ahead cache settings. Read ahead is triggered by two back-to-back accesses to consecutive LBA ranges, whether forward (increasing LBAs) or reverse (decreasing LBAs). HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA System SMU Reference Guide...

  • Page 26

    You can change the amount of data read in advance after two back-to-back reads are made. Increasing the read-ahead cache size can greatly improve performance for multiple sequential read streams; however, increasing read-ahead size will likely decrease random read performance. •...

  • Page 27: About The Snapshot Feature

    If the software installation is successful, you can rollback the master volume to the contents of the modified snapshot (preserved data plus the write data). HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA System SMU Reference Guide...

    The following figure shows the difference between rolling back the master volume to the data that existed when a specified snapshot was created (preserved), and rolling back preserved and modified data. MasterVolume-1 Snapshot-1 Preserved Data (Monday) Modified Data (Tuesday) When you use the rollback feature, you can choose to exclude the modified data, which will revert the data on the master volume to the preserved data when...

    3. On completion, the new volume is a completely independent copy of the snapshot. The snapshot remains, though you can choose to delete it. Figure 3 Creating a volume copy from a master volume or a snapshot HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA System SMU Reference Guide...

  • Page 30

    Snapshot operations are I/O-intensive. Every write to a unique location in a master volume after a snapshot is taken will cause an internal read and write operation to occur in order to preserve the snapshot data. If you intend to create snapshots of, create volume copies of, or replicate volumes in a vdisk, ensure that the vdisk contains no more than four master volumes, snap pools, or both.

  • Page 69: Creating A Snapshot

    Snapshots can be deleted in any order, irrespective of the order in which they were created. CAUTION: Deleting a snapshot removes its mappings and schedules and deletes its data. HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA System SMU Reference Guide...

  • Page 70: Resetting A Snapshot

    CAUTION: If a replication snapshot’s type is shown as a “sync point” for its replication set, consider carefully whether you want to delete that snapshot. If you delete the current sync point, then if a replication-set failure occurs, a prior sync point will be used. If you delete the only sync point then the next replication will require a full sync to be performed (all data to be re-replicated from the primary volume to a secondary volume).

    • Delta replications: Delta data is the “list” of 64-Kb blocks that differs between the last snapshot replicated and the next snapshot to be replicated. This delta data is then replicated from the replication snapshot on the primary volume to the secondary volume. Once the initial replication has completed, all future replications for that replication set will be delta replications so long as sync points are maintained.
