SnapshotIQ expiration error/question

Jump to solution

When we create a SnapshotIQ schedule with a specific duration, OneFS adds 1 to the duration. For example, if we create a expiration of 3 hours, after creation of the schedule, reveals a expiration time of 4 hours. When setting the expiration time to 1 weeks, isilon sets the the expiration time to 8 days It doens't matter if you use the GUI or CLI.. We are using OneFS 8.0.0.1. Anyone seen the behaviour and has a solution to this problem ?

Hi StefanWilmes,

It seems you are not the first to run into this issue. The workaround has been to use "isi_classic" commands to set the duration.

You may want to consider opening a service request so that a ticket can be logged for frequency within Isilon Support.

Anyone also struggling with the isi_classic command to do this :

     isi_classic snapshot schedule modify schehulename --duration=2H (for example)

keeps giving me parser error at token 'H': syntax error, no matter what variant i try ...

Hi StefanWilmes,

I had one of my colleagues run the snapshot command on an 8.0.0.1 cluster and didn't see the syntax error. Here is the output:


X8001S-1# isi snapshot schedules list -v

           ID: 1

         Name: date

         Path: /ifs/data

      Pattern: date_hourly_%Y-%m-%d-_%H-%M

     Schedule: every 1 days every 1 hours between 12:00 AM and 11:59 PM

     Duration: -

        Alias: -

     Next Run: 2016-08-10T12:00:00

Next Snapshot: date_hourly_2016-08-10-_12-00

X8001S-1# isi snapshot schedules modify --schedule-name=date --duration=2H

X8001S-1#

You are not using the isi_classic command, the normal isi command works fine but sets the duration wrong. As i understood, isi_classic sets the duration ok.

Yes, you are correct. I missed that. I will ask him to run with the isi_classic command quick and then edit this response with the output.

Sorry about that. For the record, here is the list after running the regular isi snapshot command with 2H option:

X8001S-1# isi snapshot schedules modify --schedule-name=date --duration=2H X8001S-1# isi snapshot schedules list -v

           ID: 1

         Name: date

         Path: /ifs/data

      Pattern: date_hourly_%Y-%m-%d-_%H-%M

     Schedule: every 1 days every 1 hours between 12:00 AM and 11:59 PM

     Duration: 3H

        Alias: -

     Next Run: 2016-08-10T12:00:00

Next Snapshot: date_hourly_2016-08-10-_12-00


As you can see, it still added an extra hour. Here is the syntax for the isi_classic command:

X8001S-1# isi_classic snapshot schedule modify --schedule=date --duration="2 hours"

X8001S-1# isi_classic snapshot schedule list -l

-------------------- date --------------------

Schedule Id: 1

How Often: every 1 days every 1 hours between 12:00 AM and 11:59 PM

Starting When: 2016-08-10 11:55

Duration: 2 hours

Pattern: date_hourly_%Y-%m-%d-_%H-%M

Path: /ifs/data

X8001S-1# isi snapshot schedules list -v

           ID: 1

         Name: date

         Path: /ifs/data

      Pattern: date_hourly_%Y-%m-%d-_%H-%M

     Schedule: every 1 days every 1 hours between 12:00 AM and 11:59 PM

     Duration: 2H

        Alias: -

     Next Run: 2016-08-10T13:00:00

Next Snapshot: date_hourly_2016-08-10-_13-00
