Determining whether load-sharing mirrors are up-to-date

You can determine whether load-sharing mirrors are up to date by using the snapmirror show command and looking at the exported-snapshot field. You might do this to ensure that all of the load-sharing mirrors in the set get updated after an update.

About this task

If a load-sharing mirror is lagging behind the most up-to-date load-sharing mirror in the set, the exported-snapshot field shows a dash (-).


  1. Use the snapmirror show command with the -fields option to list the status of load-sharing mirrors for a particular source volume.
    The following example lists the load-sharing mirrors for the source volume named dept_eng and shows the load-sharing mirrors that are lagging behind the up-to-date mirrors (identified by the dash in the exported-snapshot field).

    Note: You can use one or more snapmirror show command options to list more specific information about a set of load-sharing mirrors. See the snapmirror show command in the Clustered Data ONTAP Data Protection Guide for more information.
