Modify system write speed

Contributors netapp-bcammett

Cloud Manager enables you to choose a normal or high write speed for Cloud Volumes ONTAP. The default write speed is normal. You can change to high write speed if fast write performance is required for your workload.

High write speed is supported with all types of single node systems and some HA pair configurations. View supported configurations in the Cloud Volumes ONTAP Release Notes

Before you change the write speed, you should understand the differences between the normal and high settings.

About this task
  • Ensure that operations such as volume or aggregate creation are not in progress.

  • Be aware that this change restarts the Cloud Volumes ONTAP system. This is disruptive process that requires downtime for the entire system.

Steps
  1. From the working environment, click the menu icon, and then click Advanced > Writing Speed.

  2. Select Normal or High.

    If you choose High, then you’ll need to read the "I understand…​" statement and confirm by checking the box.

  3. Click Save, review the confirmation message, and then click Proceed.
