How you schedule automatic RAID-level scrubs

By default, Data ONTAP performs a weekly RAID-level scrub starting on Sunday at 1:00 a.m. for a duration of six hours. You can change the start time and duration of the weekly scrub, or add more automatic scrubs.

To schedule an automatic RAID-level scrub, you use the raid.scrub.schedule option.

To change the duration of automatic RAID-level scrubbing without changing the start time, you use the raid.scrub.duration option, specifying the number of minutes you want automatic RAID-level scrubs to run. If you set this option to -1, all automatic RAID-level scrubs run to completion.
Note: If you specify a duration using the raid.scrub.schedule option, that value overrides the value you specify with the raid.scrub.duration option.

Scheduling example

The following command schedules two weekly RAID scrubs. The first scrub is for 240 minutes (four hours) every Tuesday starting at 2 a.m. The second scrub is for eight hours every Saturday starting at 10 p.m. options raid.scrub.schedule 240m@tue@2,8h@sat@22

Verification example

The following command displays your current RAID-level automatic scrub schedule. options raid.scrub.schedule

Reverting to the default schedule example

The following command reverts your automatic RAID-level scrub schedule to the default (Sunday at 1:00 a.m., for six hours): options raid.scrub.schedule ""
