autobalance volume rebalance start

Start Auto Balance Volume for an Infinite Volume

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the advanced privilege level.

Description

The autobalance volume rebalance start command allows the user to start Auto Balance Volume and rebalance the used data capacity in an Infinite Volume after files are created. Auto Balance Volume moves data between data constituents of an Infinite Volume. If the Infinite Volume uses storage services, Auto Balance Volume moves data between data constituents of a storage service in an Infinite Volume. Auto Balance Volume ensures that all data constituents in an Infinite Volume or all data constituents in a storage service of an Infinite Volume have similar amounts of used data capacity. The autobalance volume rebalance start command is only supported for Infinite Volumes.

Parameters

-vserver <vserver name> - Vserver
This specifies the Vserver on which the Infinite Volume to be rebalanced is located.
-volume <volume name> - Volume Name
This specifies the Infinite Volume to be rebalanced.
-storage-service <storage service name> - Storage Service
If the Infinite Volume uses storage services, the storage-service parameter is required to specify the storage service to be rebalanced. If the Infinite Volume does not use storage services, the storage-service parameter cannot be specified, and the entire Infinite Volume will be rebalanced.
[-timeout <integer>] - Requisition Timeout (seconds)
The maximum number of seconds Auto Balance Volume will permit an operation to continue without moving files, before moving the operation to the complete state.
