Cluster Protection and Availability widget

Content Software for File User Guide

Part Number

This widget shows the overall status of the system's health and protection state.

The overall status widget includes the following indications:

  • Protection state: The possible protection states include:
    • OK: The system operates properly.
    • UNKNOWN: The protection state is unknown.
    • UNINITIALIZED: The system must complete the cluster configuration and run the first IOs.
    • REBUILDING: When a failure occurs, the data rebuild process reads all the stripes where the failure occurred, rebuilds the data, and returns the system to full protection.
    • PARTIALLY_PROTECTED: Some or all of the data is not fully protected. The reported number of protections indicates the cluster's failure resilience.
    • UNPROTECTED: The data is not protected against any failure.
    • UNAVAILABLE: Too many parallel failures occur in the system that can cause system unavailability.
    • REDISTRIBUTING: The system redistributes the data between servers and drives due to scale-up or scale-down.
  • Service Uptime: The elapsed time since the I/O services started.
  • Data Protection: The number of data drives and protection parity drives. The color of the protection parity drives indicates their status.
  • Virtual (Hot) Spares: The number of failure domains that the system can lose and still complete the data rebuild while maintaining the same net capacity.
