Extending NetVault SmartDisk Storage Pools

Configuring NetVault SmartDisk > Extending NetVault SmartDisk Storage Pools

You can extend NetVault SmartDisk physical capacity by adding or updating the volumes specified for the NetVault SmartDisk Storage Pools. Use the config ‑‑add|‑‑update ‑‑volume <path> command to extend the NetVault SmartDisk physical capacity. You can also use the following additional parameters:
Specifies the percentage of the volume that NetVault SmartDisk can use; the remainder cannot be used by NetVault SmartDisk.
The value of ((100 - X) / 100) * (total volume size) is added to the Last Resort Threshold (LRT). In addition, a small amount of storage is reserved to complete Garbage Collection. These three components of reserved storage determine the total storage set aside that cannot be directly used by NetVault SmartDisk.
For example, if volume-size is set to 30 and the volume’s size is 100 GB, 70 GB is set aside — in addition to the LRT and Garbage Collection reserve space — and cannot be used by NetVault SmartDisk.
