Drives details

The Drives page on the Cluster tab provides a list of the active drives in the cluster. You can filter the page by selecting from the Active, Available, Removing, Erasing, and Failed tabs.

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 SolidFire cluster is created.

The following elements appear in the list of active drives.

Drive ID
The sequential number assigned to the drive.
Node ID
The node number assigned when the node is added to the cluster.
Node Name
The name of the node that houses the drive.
Slot
The slot number where the drive is physically located.
Capacity
The size of the drive, in GB.
Serial
The serial number of the drive.
Wear Remaining
The wear level indicator.

The storage system reports the approximate amount of wear available on each solid-state drive (SSD) for writing and erasing data. A drive that has consumed 5 percent of its designed write and erase cycles reports 95 percent wear remaining. The system does not refresh drive wear information automatically; you can refresh or close and reload the page to refresh the information.

Type
The type of drive. The type can be either block or metadata.
