The following API request updates the cache of storage system configuration information.

The procedure for obtaining information about resources after performing operations such as changing the configuration of resources is as follows.

  1. Run the API request that changes the configuration of resources described in the explanation about API requests for getting information from the SVP.
  2. Run the API request that updates the cache of storage system configuration information.

    It takes about 10 seconds or longer to update the cache information. Depending on the storage system usage status, it might take as long as 20 minutes to receive a response for this API request. Also, if multiple operations for changing the configuration are running concurrently, it might take a long time to receive a response for this API request.

    We recommend that you lock the target resources before running this API request.

    Note:

    This API request might fail depending on the number of configuration change operations and the number of resources such as LDEVs. If such a failure occurs, the HTTP status code 503 will be returned. In such a case, wait a while, and then run the request again.

  3. Run the API request that obtains information about the resources whose configuration has been changed.
