Transition from SSD-only filesystem to tiered filesystem

Content Software for File User Guide

Part Number

An SSD-only filesystem can be reconfigured as a tiered filesystem by attaching an object store. In such a situation, the default is to maintain the filesystem size. In order to increase the filesystem size, the total capacity field can be modified, while the existing SSD capacity remains the same.

Note: Once an SSD-only filesystem has been reconfigured as a tiered filesystem, all existing data will be considered to belong to interval 0 and will be managed according to the 7-interval process. This means that the release process of the data created before the reconfiguration of the filesystem is performed in an arbitrary order and does not depend on the timestamps.
