Configure stored object hashing

Contributors netapp-madkat

The Stored Object Hashing option specifies the hashing algorithm used to verify object integrity.

What you’ll need
  • You are signed in to the Grid Manager using a supported web browser.

  • You have specific access permissions.

About this task

By default, object data is hashed using the SHA-1 algorithm. The SHA-256 algorithm requires additional CPU resources and is generally not recommended for integrity verification.

Note If you change this setting, it will take about one minute for the new setting to be applied. The configured value is cached for performance and scaling.
  1. Select CONFIGURATION > System > Grid options.

  2. In the Stored Object Options section, change Stored Object Hashing to SHA-1 (default) or SHA-256.
