Running data compression commands on a vFiler unit

You can run data compression commands from interfaces such as CLI and SSH.

Steps

  1. From the vFiler unit context, enter the following command to enable data compression:
    sis config -C true -I false vol_name

    vol_name is the name of the volume.

    When the option C is set to true, data compression is enabled. By default, it is disabled.

    When the option I is set to true, inline compression is enabled. To enable inline compression, data compression must be enabled.

  2. Enter the required data compression commands.

    Note: All sis commands are supported.

    For more information about sis commands, see the Data ONTAP Storage Management Guide for 7-Mode.

Example

vfilerA::> sis config -C true /vol/volA
