Creating QoS policy groups

You can use System Manager to create storage Quality of Service (QoS) policy groups to limit the throughput of workloads and to monitor workload performance.

Steps

  1. Click Storage > SVMs.
  2. Select the SVM, and then click SVM Settings.
  3. In the Policies pane, click QoS Policy Groups.
  4. In the QoS Policy Groups window, click Create.
  5. In the Create Policy Group dialog box, specify a group name for the policy.
  6. Specify the minimum throughput limit.
    • You can set the minimum throughput limit only on an AFF platform.
    • You cannot set the minimum throughput limit for volumes on a FabricPool-enabled aggregate.
    • If you do not specify the minimum throughput value or if the minimum throughput value is set to 0, the system automatically displays "None" as the value.

      This value is case-sensitive.

  7. Specify the maximum throughput limit.
    • The minimum throughput limit and the maximum throughput limit must be of the same unit type.
    • If you do not specify the minimum throughput limit, you can set the maximum throughput limit in IOPS and B/s, KB/s, MB/s, and so on.
    • If you do not specify the maximum throughput limit, the system automatically displays "Unlimited" as the value.

      This value is case-sensitive. The unit that you specify does not affect the maximum throughput.

  8. Click OK.
