Suspend SSD cache

The suspend ssdCache command temporarily stops caching for all of the volumes that are using the SSD cache.

Supported Arrays

This command applies to any individual storage array, including the E2700, E5600, E2800, and E5700 arrays, as long as all SMcli packages are installed.

Roles

To execute this command on an E2800 or E5700 storage array, you must have the Support Admin role.

Context

While caching is stopped, host reads are serviced from the base volumes instead of from the SSD cache.
