Creating and editing Performance Service Levels

Contributors netapp-manini

When the system-defined Performance Service Levels do not match your workload requirements, you can create your own Performance Service Levels that are optimized for your workloads.

What you’ll need

  • You must have the Application Administrator role.

  • The Performance Service Level name must be unique, and you cannot use the following reserved keywords:

    Prime, Extreme, Performance, Value, Unassigned, Learning, Idle, Default, and None.

You create and edit custom Performance Service Levels from the Performance Service Levels page by defining the service level objectives you require for the applications that will access storage.

Note

You cannot modify a Performance Service Level if it is currently assigned to a workload.

Steps
  1. In the left navigation pane under Settings, select Policies > Performance Service Levels.

  2. In the Performance Service Levels page, click the appropriate button depending on whether you want to create a new Performance Service Level or if you want to edit an existing Performance Service Level.

    To…​ Follow these steps…​

    Create a new Performance Service Level

    Click Add.

    Edit an existing Performance Service Level

    Select an existing Performance Service Level, and then click Edit.

    The page to add or edit a Performance Service Level is displayed.

  3. Customize the Performance Service Level by specifying the performance objectives, and then click Submit to save the Performance Service Level.

You can apply the new or changed Performance Service Level to workloads (LUNs, NFS File Shares, CIFS Shares) from the Workloads page or when provisioning a new workload.
