Drive details

You can view a list of the active drives in the cluster using the Active view on the Drives page of the Cluster tab from the NetApp Element Management extension point. You can change the view by selecting available options using the drop-down filter.

When you first initialize a cluster, the active drives list is empty. You can add drives that are unassigned to a cluster and listed in the Available tab after a new cluster is created. The following headings are shown in the list of active drives:

Drive ID
Sequential number assigned to the drive.
Drive State
The status of the drive.
Possible values are as follows:
  • Active: A drive that is in use by the cluster.
  • Available: An available drive that can be added to the cluster.
  • Removing: A drive is in the process of being removed. Any data previously on the drive is being migrated to other drives in the cluster.
  • Erasing: A drive is in the process of being secure erased. Any data on that drive is permanently removed
  • Failed: A drive that has failed. Any data that was previously on the drive has been migrated to other drives in the cluster. The system puts a drive in a failed state if the self-diagnostics of the drive tells the node it has failed or if communications to the drive stop for 5.5 minutes or longer.
Node ID
Assigned node number when the node is added to the cluster.
Node Name
Name of the node where the drive resides.
Slot number where the drive is physically located.
Capacity (GB)
Size of the drive in GB.
Serial number of the SSD.
Wear Remaining
Wear-level indicator.
Drive type can be block or metadata.
