In Rapid Recovery, you can modify the settings to manage the data transfer processes for a protected cluster.
There are three types of transfers in Rapid Recovery:
|Snapshot||Backs up the data on your protected cluster.|
|Virtual machine export||Creates a virtual machine with all of the backup information and parameters specified by the scheduled defined for protecting the cluster.|
|Restore||Recovers backup information for a protected cluster.|
The transfer settings for the cluster appear.
When you click on a setting you want to change, that setting becomes editable as a text field or a drop-down menu.
|Restore Default||This control restores all transfer settings to the system default settings.|
|Priority||Sets the transfer priority between protected machines. Enables you to assign priority by comparison with other protected machines. Select a number from 1 to 10, with 1 being the highest priority. The default setting establishes a priority of 5.|
|Maximum Concurrent Streams||Sets the maximum number of TCP links that are sent to the Core to be processed in parallel per protected machine.|
|Maximum Concurrent Writes||Sets the maximum number of simultaneous disk write actions per protected machine connection.|
|Use Core Default Maximum Retries||Select this option to use default retries number for each protected machine, if some of the operations fail to complete.|
|Maximum Segment Size||Specifies the largest amount of data, in bytes, that a computer can receive in a single TCP segment. The default setting is 4194304.
Do not change this setting from the default unless directed to do so by a Dell Support representative.
|Maximum Transfer Queue Depth||Specifies the amount of commands that can be sent concurrently. The default setting is 64.
You can adjust this to a higher number if your system has a high number of concurrent input/output operations.
|Outstanding Reads per Stream||Specifies how many queued read operations will be stored on the back end. This setting helps to control the queuing of protected machines. The default setting is 0.|
|Transfer Data Server Port||Sets the port for transfers. The default setting is 8009.|
|Transfer Timeout||Specifies in minutes and seconds the amount of time to allow a packet to be static without transfer.|
|Snapshot Timeout||Specifies in minutes and seconds the maximum time to wait to take a snapshot.|
|Snapshot Cleaning Timeout||Specifies in minutes and seconds the maximum time for process of deleting VSS snapshot on a protected machine.|
|Network Read Timeout||Specifies in minutes and seconds the maximum time to wait for a read connection. If the network read cannot be performed in that time, the operation is retried.|
|Network Write Timeout||Specifies the maximum time in seconds to wait for a write connection. If the network write cannot be performed in that time, the operation is retried.|
In Rapid Recovery, you can convert a protected cluster node to a protected machine so that it is still managed by the Core, but it is no longer part of the cluster. This is helpful, for example, if you need to remove the cluster node from the cluster but still keep it protected.
Complete the steps in the following procedures to view summary, event, alert information, and so on for server clusters.
Complete the steps in this procedure to view detailed system information about a cluster.
The system information page displays to show system details about the cluster such as name, included nodes with associated state and Windows versions, network interface information, and volume capacity information.
Complete the steps in this procedure to view events and alerts for a cluster.
For information about viewing events and alerts for an individual machine or node in a cluster, see Viewing events using tasks, alerts, and journal.
The Events page opens and shows all tasks for this cluster.
The list of events is filtered to display only alerts for the cluster or node you selected.
All events display for the cluster or node you selected.
Complete the steps in this procedure to view summary information about a cluster including information about the associated quorum for the cluster.
The Summary page for the machine appears.
For information about viewing summary and status information for an individual machine or node in the cluster, see Viewing machine status and other details.
A recovery point, also referred to as a snapshot, is a point-in-time copy of the folders and files for the shared volumes in a cluster, which are stored in the repository. Recovery points are used to recover protected machines or to mount to a local file system. In Rapid Recovery, you can view the lists of recovery points in the repository. Complete the steps in the following procedure to review recovery points.
For information about viewing recovery points for individual machines in a cluster, see Viewing recovery points.
For information about the operations you can perform on the recovery points, see Viewing a specific recovery point.
