2 NetVault SmartDisk displays the NetVault SmartDisk Logs and all relevant information. When you run logs without any options, it displays all NetVault SmartDisk log entries.

You can use the NetVault SmartDisk CLI config command to perform tasks such as:
Before using the NetVault SmartDisk CLI config command, note the following:
• With the --volume and --pool options, the <path> and <label> strings are case-sensitive because they identify a specific NetVault SmartDisk Storage Pool or Volume.
• If a configuration-related command fails and displays a message similar to “Failed to apply configuration,” Quest recommends that you use the config command with the --show option to display the current configuration. After displaying the configuration, double-check the case of the specified NetVault SmartDisk Storage Pool or Volume to ensure that the strings reflect the case-sensitivity.
• The NetVault SmartDisk Services must be running before you can use the config command and most of the options. To view the options that are available, you can use the --help option while NetVault SmartDisk Services are offline.The NetVault SmartDisk CLI config command supports the following options:
Table 2. Available options Displays a list of the config command options and their syntax. ‑‑dedupe-enable <TRUE|FALSE> ‑‑dedupe-compression <TRUE|FALSE> Enables or disables compression of NetVault SmartDisk-unique chunks. Disabled by default, compressing unique chunks can reduce their storage footprint up to 50%. Compression is performed on the unique chunks that result from the deduplication process. Compressing the initial Full Backup for a data set might take longer than not compressing the unique data because most of the data is considered unique. Subsequent Full Backups have fewer unique chunks and do not experience an increase in the amount of time it takes to complete the deduplication and compression process. ‑‑add|‑‑delete ‑‑dedupe-window <[Sun|Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat-]HH:MM-HH:MM>|<Never|Anytime> Sets the NetVault SmartDisk Deduplication Window by specifying the times that deduplication can be performed. By default, the default deduplication window is set to Anytime.
• Days of Week: Specifies the days of the week on which the deduplication process runs. You can schedule it to run on multiple days, such as Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
• HH:MM-HH:MM: Using a 24-hour clock, specifies the times of day at which the deduplication process runs.
• Never: Disables the deduplication window. Backups enabled for deduplication remain in the Staging Store in a non-deduplicated state until the deduplication window is enabled.
• Anytime: Enables the deduplication process to be run at any time. Deduplication for a backup data stream begins after the initial 400 GB has been written to the Staging Store, which can provide nearly inline deduplication performance. ‑‑add|‑‑delete ‑‑gc‑window <[Sun|Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat-]HH:MM-HH:MM>|<Never|Anytime> Sets the Garbage Collection window by specifying the times that NetVault SmartDisk Garbage Collection has priority over deduplication. By default, the Garbage Collection window is set to 13:00 through 19:00 on Mondays through Thursdays.
• Days of Week: Specifies the days of the week on which the Garbage Collection process runs. You can schedule it to run on multiple days, such as Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
• HH:MM-HH:MM: Using a 24-hour clock, specifies the times of day at which the Garbage Collection process runs.
• Never: Disables the Garbage Collection window.
• Anytime: Enables the Garbage Collection process to be run at any time. ‑‑dedupe-active-limit <Unlimited|limit> ‑‑network-capacity <MBps> ‑‑stream-limit <limit> ‑‑add|‑‑update ‑‑volume <path> [Parameters] Extends NetVault SmartDisk Storage Pools by adding or updating existing volumes in the NetVault SmartDisk Storage Pools.
