Relationship: All Relationships view

The Relationship: All Relationships view displays information about protection relationships on the storage system.

The controls along the top of the page enable you to select a particular view (for health, performance, capacity, and so on), perform searches to locate specific objects, create and apply filters to narrow the list of displayed data, add/remove/reorder columns on the page, and export the data on the page to a .csv or .pdf document. After you have customized the page, you can save the results as a custom view and then schedule a report of this data to be generated and emailed on a regular basis.
Status
Displays the current status of the protection relationship.
The status can be one of Error (), Warning (), or OK ().
Source Storage VM
Displays the name of the source SVM. You can view more details about the source SVM by clicking the SVM name.

If the message Resource-key not discovered is displayed, this might indicate that the SVM exists on the cluster but has not yet been added to the Unified Manager inventory, or that the SVM was created after the cluster's last refresh. You must ensure that the SVM exists, or perform a rediscovery on the cluster to refresh the list of resources.

Source
Displays the source volume being protected. You can view more details about the source volume by clicking the volume name.

If the message Resource-key not discovered is displayed, this might indicate that the volume exists on the cluster but has not yet been added to the Unified Manager inventory, or that the volume was created after the cluster's last refresh. You must ensure that the volume exists, or perform a rediscovery on the cluster to refresh the list of resources.

Destination Storage VM
Displays the name of the destination SVM. You can view more details about the destination SVM by clicking the SVM name.
Destination
Displays the name of the destination volume. You can view more details about the destination volume by clicking the volume name.
Policy
Displays the name of the protection policy for the volume. You can click the policy name to view details associated with that policy, including the following information:
  • Transfer Priority

    Specifies the priority at which a transfer runs for asynchronous operations. The transfer priority is Normal or Low. Normal priority transfers are scheduled before low priority transfers. The default is Normal.

  • Ignore Access Time

    Applies only to SnapVault relationships. This specifies whether incremental transfers ignore files which have only their access time changed. The values are either True or False. The default is False.

  • When Relationship is Out of Sync

    Specifies the action ONTAP performs when a synchronous relationship is not able to be synchronized. StrictSync relationships will restrict access to the primary volume if there is a failure to synchronize with the secondary volume. Sync relationships do not restrict access to the primary if there is a failure to synchronize with the secondary.

  • Tries Limit

    Specifies the maximum number of times to attempt each manual or scheduled transfer for a SnapMirror relationship. The default is 8.

  • Comments

    Provides a text field for comments for specific to the selected policy.

  • SnapMirror Label

    Specifies the SnapMirror label for the first schedule associated with the Snapshot copy policy. The SnapMirror label is used by the SnapVault subsystem when you back up Snapshot copies to a SnapVault destination.

  • Retention Setting

    Specifies how long backups are kept, based on the time or the number of backups.

  • Actual Snapshot Copies

    Specifies the number of Snapshot copies on this volume that match the specified label.

  • Preserve Snapshot Copies

    Specifies the number of SnapVault Snapshot copies that are not deleted automatically even if the maximum limit for the policy is reached. The values are either True or False. The default is False.

  • Retention Warning Threshold

    Specifies the Snapshot copy limit at which a warning is sent to indicate that the maximum retention limit is nearly reached.

Lag Duration
Displays the amount of time that the data on the mirror lags behind the source.

The lag duration should be close to, or equal to, 0 seconds for StrictSync relationships.

Lag Status
Displays the lag status for managed relationships, and for unmanaged relationships that have a schedule associated with that relationship. Lag status can be:
  • Error

    The lag duration is greater than or equal to the lag error threshold.

  • Warning

    The lag duration is greater than or equal to the lag warning threshold.

  • OK

    The lag duration is within normal limits.

  • Not Applicable

    The lag status is not applicable for synchronous relationships because a schedule cannot be configured.

Last Successful Update
Displays the time of the last successful SnapMirror or SnapVault operation.

The last successful update is not applicable for synchronous relationships.

Relationship Type
Displays the relationship type used to replicate a volume. Relationship types include:
  • Asynchronous Mirror
  • Asynchronous Vault
  • Asynchronous MirrorVault
  • StrictSync
  • Sync
Transfer Status
Displays the transfer status for the protection relationship. The transfer status can be one of the following:
  • Aborting

    SnapMirror transfers are enabled; however, a transfer abort operation that might include removal of the checkpoint is in progress.

  • Checking

    The destination volume is undergoing a diagnostic check and no transfer is in progress.

  • Finalizing

    SnapMirror transfers are enabled. The volume is currently in the post-transfer phase for incremental SnapVault transfers.

  • Idle

    Transfers are enabled and no transfer is in progress.

  • In-Sync

    The data in the two volumes in the synchronous relationship are synchronized.

  • Out-of-Sync

    The data in the destination volume is not synchronized with the source volume.

  • Preparing

    SnapMirror transfers are enabled. The volume is currently in the pre-transfer phase for incremental SnapVault transfers.

  • Queued

    SnapMirror transfers are enabled. No transfers are in progress.

  • Quiesced

    SnapMirror transfers are disabled. No transfer is in progress.

  • Quiescing

    A SnapMirror transfer is in progress. Additional transfers are disabled.

  • Transferring

    SnapMirror transfers are enabled and a transfer is in progress.

  • Transitioning

    The asynchronous transfer of data from the source to the destination volume is complete, and the transition to synchronous operation has started.

  • Waiting

    A SnapMirror transfer has been initiated, but some associated tasks are waiting to be queued.

Last Transfer Duration
Displays the time taken for the last data transfer to complete.

The transfer duration is not applicable for StrictSync relationships because the transfer should be simultaneous.

Last Transfer Size
Displays the size, in bytes, of the last data transfer.

The transfer size is not applicable for StrictSync relationships.

State
Displays the state of the SnapMirror or SnapVault relationship. The state can be Uninitialized, SnapMirrored, or Broken-Off. If a source volume is selected, the relationship state is not applicable and is not displayed.
Relationship Health
Displays the relationship heath of the cluster.
Unhealthy Reason
The reason the relationship is in an unhealthy state.
Transfer Priority
Displays the priority at which a transfer runs. The transfer priority is Normal or Low. Normal priority transfers are scheduled before low priority transfers.

The transfer priority is not applicable for synchronous relationships because all transfers are treated with the same priority.

Schedule
Displays the name of the protection schedule assigned to the relationship.

The schedule is not applicable for synchronous relationships.

Version Flexible Replication
Displays either Yes, Yes with backup option, or None.
Source Cluster
Displays the FQDN, short name, or IP address of the source cluster for the SnapMirror relationship.
Source Cluster FQDN
Displays the name of the source cluster for the SnapMirror relationship.
Source Node
Displays the name of the source node for the SnapMirror relationship.
Destination Node
Displays the name of the destination node for the SnapMirror relationship.
Destination Cluster
Displays the name of the destination cluster for the SnapMirror relationship.
Destination Cluster FQDN
Displays the FQDN, short name, or IP address of the destination cluster for the SnapMirror relationship.
