You must be aware of the maximum number of NDMP sessions that can be established simultaneously on storage systems of different system memory capacities. This maximum number depends on the system memory of a storage system.
|System memory of a storage system||Maximum number of NDMP sessions|
|Less than 16 GB||8|
|Greater than or equal to 16 GB but less than 24 GB||20|
|Greater than or equal to 24 GB||36|
You can obtain the system memory of your storage system by using the sysconfig -a command (available through the nodeshell). For more information about using this command, see the man pages.
