Snapshot copy schedule results
: The command shown in the illustration keeps the two most recent weekly Snapshot copies
, the six most recent nightly Snapshot copies
, and the eight most recent hourly Snapshot copies
, created at 8 a.m., 12 p.m., 4 p.m., and 8 p.m. every day. Whenever the Snapshot copy
schedule creates a new Snapshot copy
of a particular type, it deletes the oldest Snapshot copy
and renames the existing Snapshot copies
. On the hour, for example, the system deletes hourly.7
, renames hourly.0
, and so on.
Note: If you omit the @ argument specifying the hours for the hourly Snapshot copies, Data ONTAP creates a Snapshot copy every hour. Nightly and weekly Snapshot copies are always created at midnight.
