How do you throttle SnapMirror?

Using SnapMirror global throttling

  1. Enable global throttling: options -option-name replication.throttle.enable on|off.
  2. Specify the maximum total bandwidth used by incoming transfers: options -option-name replication.throttle.incoming.max_kbs KBps.

What are the steps need to perform to configure SnapMirror?

  1. Verify the cluster peer relationship and SVM peer relationship.
  2. Create the SnapMirror relationship (Beginning with ONTAP 9.3)
  3. Create the SnapMirror relationship (ONTAP 9.2 or earlier)
  4. Set up the destination SVM for data access.
  5. Monitor the status of SnapMirror data transfers.

What protocol does SnapMirror use?

Supported features In ONTAP 9.5 and later, SnapMirror Synchronous technology supports the NFSv3, FC, and iSCSI protocols over all networks for which the latency does not exceed 10ms.

What is SnapMirror resync?

Description. The snapmirror resync command establishes or reestablishes a mirroring relationship between a source and a destination endpoint. The endpoints can be Vservers, volumes or non-Data ONTAP endpoints that support SnapMirror.

What is DP and XDP in netapp?

“DP” are block-based and uses BRE (Block Replication Engine) “All the rest of it”, (file-based) i.e XDP, SnapVault and version independent SnapMirror uses LRE (Logical Replication Engine) BRE (suited for disaster type of scenario) = Tracks each “block” and is unaware of file-system structure.

What is the difference between SnapMirror and SnapVault?

SnapMirror is disaster recovery technology, designed for failover from primary storage to secondary storage at a geographically remote site. SnapVault is archiving technology, designed for disk-to-disk Snapshot copy replication for standards compliance and other governance-related purposes.

Is SnapMirror traffic encrypted?

Now with ONTAP 9.6, SnapMirror and Snapmirror Synchronous is encrypted (TLS v1. 2) end to end and is enabled by default on all new SnapMirror relationships. End-to-end encryption is also now available on the new version of FlexCache, which made its debut with ONTAP 9.5.

What is netapp SnapMirror?

SnapMirror is a feature of Data ONTAP that enables you to replicate data. SnapMirror enables you to replicate data from specified source volumes or qtrees to specified destination volumes or qtrees, respectively. You need a separate license to use SnapMirror.

What is XDP SnapMirror?

Starting with ONTAP 9.5, SnapMirror extended data protection (XDP) mode replaces SnapMirror data protection (DP) mode as the SnapMirror default.

What is DP in SnapMirror?

How does SnapMirror work?

SnapMirror replicates data from a source volume or qtree to a partner destination volume or qtree, respectively, by using Snapshot copies. Before using SnapMirror to copy data, you need to establish a relationship between the source and the destination. SnapMirror is used to replicate data.
