maintenance --filesystem [--stop_reclaim_space]

Description

Stops Cleaner running in run-once mode (as the result of executing the --reclaim space command)

Syntax

maintenance --filesystem --stop_reclaim_space

Result

Successfully stopped cleaner.

maintenance --filesystem [--clear_quarantine]

Description

Clears a specialized quarantine folder that collects data files considered corrupted after attempts have been made to perform repairs by the filesystem. The maintenance --filesystem CLI commands should only be performed when the QoreStor is in its Maintenance mode. This command should not need to be run on a regular basis (it should only be run when a lengthy period of time has elapsed or you feel that the space in the quarantine folder needs to be reclaimed).

Syntax

maintenance --filesystem --clear_quarantine

Result

Successfully performed quarantine cleanup.

maintenance --filesystem [--start_scan [verify_data | verify_rda_metadata | verify_metadata] [--storage_group <name>]

| verify_rda_metadata | verify_metadata] [--storage_group <name>]

Description

Starts filesystem checker to check for consistency issues in storage groups.

NOTE: Argument verify_data validates data with pre-built checksum. Argument verify_rda_metadata scans only OST and RDA containers. Argument verify_metadata scans the namespace for all containers.

NOTE: Using this command places the files system into a read-only mode and pauses all active replications. When the QoreStor enters Maintenance mode, an alert is sent that indicates this operational change.

Syntax

maintenance --filesystem --start_scan verify_data --storage_group SGTest1

Result

This operation will make the filesystem read-only and pause all active replications.
"verify_data" option will check for data consistency issues in the filesystem.  This might take long time to complete.
