Creating a QoS policy

You can create QoS policies and apply them when creating volumes from the NetApp Element Management extension point.

Before you begin

Note: QoSSIOC automation and QoS policies should not be used together. If you are using QoS policies, do not enable QoSSIOC. QoSSIOC will override and adjust QoS values for volume QoS settings.


  1. Select NetApp Element Management > Management.
    Note: If two or more clusters are added, ensure that the cluster you intend to use for the task is selected in the navigation bar.
  2. Click the QoS Policies sub-tab.
  3. Click Create QoS Policy.
  4. Enter the Policy Name.
    Tip: Use descriptive naming best practices. This is especially important if multiple clusters or vCenter Servers are used in your environment.
  5. Enter the Min IOPS, Max IOPS, and Burst IOPS values.
  6. Click OK.
