Auxiliary Copy

Use this alert to monitor auxiliary copy jobs running in the CommCell (under specific storage policies).

Description

Administrative Management or Alert Management

Storage Policies

Storage Policy Copies

Alert every n attempt (Phase failures)

A specified number of attempts were made to resume the auxiliary copy operation after a phase failure.

Alert every n attempt (Network failures)

A specified number of attempts were made to resume the auxiliary copy operation after a network failure.

Delayed by n Hrs

An auxiliary copy operation was in a waiting state for the hours specified by the user at time of configuration.

Auxiliary Copy fallen behind alert

Any of the following criteria have been met for the selected storage policy copy:

  • To be copied data is over the quantity specified in TB. Default value is 25TB.
  • Jobs that are over number of specified days old and have not yet been fully copied.
  • More than the default value of 48 hrs is required to copy all data, based on the average throughput of previously run Auxiliary Copy jobs. It is recommended that you adjust this value with an estimated completion time so that the alert above will not be triggered.

Note: If you do not select the To be copied data is over option for the storage policy copy, you will receive an alert when the data to be copied exceeds the default threshold of 25TB. Also, a warning icon appears for the storage policy and the storage policy copy.

If an alert is received, give immediate attention to any abnormal condition. Immediate action will prevent the Auxiliary Copy falling behind the source copy, in terms of amount of data to be copied.

The alert indicates the criteria that triggered the alert, with one alert reason for each criterion above, respectively:

  • to be copied data exceeded
  • old jobs not copied
  • need more time to copy data

Assuming the Auxiliary copy has had no issues and is expected to run for that duration, use the throughput and application values from the Auxiliary Copy Job Summary Report to set the value for this third criterion. For example, application data size is 1000 GB and throughput is 500 GB/hr, set time to 2 hours.

Note:

The example below shows how the throughput is calculated internally and can be followed to set the hours value for the third criterion:

Auxiliary Copy Job1 copied 4 TB in 2 hrs.

Auxiliary Copy Job2 copied 2 TB in 1 hour.

Average Throughput = (Total data copied by all jobs) / (Total time taken by all previous Auxiliary Copy jobs)

In the example,

  • Total data copied = 6 TB
  • Total time taken = 3 hrs

Average throughput is 6/3 = 2 TB/hr.

To copy 4 TB, the calculation is 4/2, rounding up to the next hour set the alert to 2 hrs.

If the amount of data to copy increases to 27 TB, set the alert to 14 hrs, if throughput is 2TB/hr.

If throughput increases, for example 10 TB can be copied in 1 hr, then set the alert to 3 hrs, if data to be copied is 27TB.

Fallen behind alert for Silo copy and Snap copy is not supported.

The interval between alerts for this criterion can be configured in the Media Management Configuration (Auxiliary Copy Configuration) dialog box. The default interval is 24 hours, which is set in the Interval (Hours) between Auxiliary Copy Fallen Behind alerts option.
