Storage Pools window

You can use the Storage Pools window to create, display, and manage a dedicated cache of SSDs, also known as storage pools. These storage pools can be associated with a non-root aggregate to provide SSD cache and with a Flash Pool aggregate to increase its size.

This page is not available for a cluster containing nodes with All Flash Optimized personality.
