Viewing the current limit on the number of vFiler units

To determine whether you want to increase or decrease the current limit on the number of vFiler units that you can have on a hosting storage system, you can view the current limit.

About this task

The vFiler unit limit specifies the maximum number of vFiler units that can exist on the hosting storage system. Because the limit includes the hosting storage system, vfiler0 (which always exists if MultiStore is enabled), the number of vFiler units you can create on a storage system is one less than the vFiler unit limit set on a storage system.

In an HA pair during a takeover, the limit on the number of vFiler units on each storage system is applicable within the context of that storage system.

Step

  1. To view the current limit on the number of vFiler units, enter the following command:
    vfiler limit

Example

The following command displays the current limit of the vFiler units:

Storage system> vfiler limit
Current limit:       11
Current in use:      1
Platform hard limit: 65
