Cloud Mirroring on the CloudFS UI Dashboard

After installation, you can view the Dashboard to see communication activity to the secondary object store.

Network Throughput Dashlet

The Network Throughput dashlet will show throughput between the filer and the secondary object store:

Cloud Status Dashlet

The Cloud Status dashlet will show the status of the secondary object store, as well as upload and download communication stats:

Active Filer Status Dashlet

The Active Filer Status dashlet shows three new columns:

1. Cloud Mirror Status – Difference between latest snapshot in CMP and latest snapshot in CSP. Hovering over the field will show the “Cloud Mirror Sync Status” for the filer:

a. Current Snap: The most recent snapshot generated by this filer.

b. Last Uploaded: The most recent snapshot uploaded to any one object store (either primary object store or secondary object store).

c. Last Consistency Point: The most recent snapshot uploaded to BOTH object stores (primary object store and secondary object store).

The number shown in the “Cloud Mirror Status” field of the table shows the difference between Last Uploaded and Last Consistency Point. In the example above, the secondary object store is 1471 snapshots behind the primary object store. When the snapshots in the primary and secondary object stores are consistent with each other, the “Cloud Mirror Status” field will show “Synced”:

2. Master Snapshot Status – Difference between latest master snapshot in CMP and latest master snapshot in CSP. Hovering over the field will show the “Master Snapshot Status” for the filer:

a. Last Transported Master Snapshot: The most recent master snapshot uploaded to any one object store (either primary object store or secondary object store).

b. Last Consistent Master Snapshot: The most recent master snapshot uploaded to BOTH object stores (primary object store and secondary object store).

The number shown in the “Master Snapshot Status” field of the table shows the difference between Last Transported Master Snapshot and Last Consistent Master Snapshot. When the snapshots in the primary and secondary object stores are consistent with each other, the “Cloud Mirror Status” field will show “Synced” (as in the example above).

3. New Cloud Resilvering Status – When a secondary object store is added to an existing cluster, it must “catch up” to the primary object store (this is called “Resilvering”). This statistic tracks the status of the resilvering process. When this field shows “Done”, then the secondary object store has caught up to the primary object store.
