To ensure SnapVault transfers are taking place as expected, you can check the transfer status using the snapvault status command.
- To check the status of a data transfer and see how recently a qtree has been updated, enter the following command: snapvault status [-l|-s|-c|-t] [[[system_name:]qtree_path] ...]
- -l displays the long format of the output, which contains more detailed information.
- -s displays the SnapVault Snapshot copy basename, status, and schedule for each volume.
- -c displays the configuration parameters of all SnapVault qtrees on the system. This option can be run only from the secondary system.
- -t displays the relationships that are active.
Note: A relationship is considered active if the source or destination is involved in any one of the following activities: transferring data to or from the network, reading or writing to a tape device, waiting for a tape change, or performing local on-disk processing or clean-up.
system_name is the name of the system for which you want to see the status of SnapVault operations.
qtree_path is the path of the qtree or qtrees for which you want to see the status of SnapVault operations. You can specify more than one qtree path.
The system displays a message showing whether a transfer is in progress, how much data has been transferred, the state of the destination, and how long ago the last successful transfer took place.
- If [system_name:]qtree_path arguments are specified, then status is displayed only for the specified qtrees.
- If the -l option is given, the output includes the more detailed information shown in Example 2.
- If the -s option is given, the output displays Snapshot copy creation status, as shown in Example 3.
- If the -c option is given, the output displays the parameter settings for the primary system configuration, as shown in Example 4.
- If the -t option is given, the output displays the list of relationships that have active transfers as shown in Example 5.
Data ONTAP allows you to set a maximum rate for transfers coming into a system and for transfers going out of a system.
