Meta LUN information ( striped or concatinated) in SP Collect.

Jump to solution


All

Is there any way to decide if a MetaLUN is striped or concatinated from looking in a SP Collect?

Thanks

that should be visible. At least in the GUI it is. Not sure how and where in an spcollect this shows up, but I can imagine it's there. I'll try to look it up when I get back to the office next week.

There is files that do explain it - however for simplicity I would recommend having a look at the SPx_array_config.xml within the spcollects

You can view this using Unisphere Service Manager

Nice! I tried to help attract some more people to your article by writing a (very) little blog post.

Each time when a Lun is concatenated, a new component will be created.  Concatenation and striping can be performed multiple times on a Lun. There is a limit for Luns per MetaLun component and Components per MetaLun. They differ from array model. Above screen shot is taken from SP collects. Using Layout column we can identify striped Luns on each component

Is it correctly understood,from the example below, that if the id fiels only contains one entry, it is a striped metalun, and that if the id field contains more entries, it is a concatenated Meta??

thanks
