Enabling PermaCache modifications to take place through an online configuration change allows users to set a configuration with no disruptions and avoids requirements for future maintenance.

If category is entered, modifier must also be entered. A Symmetrix feature that automatically transfers data from a failing disk device to an available spare disk device without affecting data availability.

The component in the Symmetrix subsystem that interfaces between the host channels and data storage. SymmWin may have added additional information to the log. Migrated volumes are distributed across specified recipient drives by a sophisticated layout algorithm. The default is to keep up to 20 Zip files for each log, with up to 10 log files in each Zip files. You can determine the frequency of the execution, specify the resources it requires, and assign alternative procedures to be used in case of a run failure, as shown in Figure 65 on page A relative jump moves the entered number of bytes backward or forward in the log.


The tasks are performed only when SymmWin is running. TimeFinder family add-on options: A program used to initialize Symmetrix at installation and provide media maintenance.

The Count field indicates the data record’s physical location cylinder and headrecord number, key length, and data length. Put it to work where it s relevant, anytime without compromise.

EMC Symmetrix – Wikipedia

Scroll — Changes autoscroll method. This automatically finds the next free markpoint number and sets it at the cursor location. The Data connect time is the length of time the channel is transferring data. Likewise, pressing the up arrow at the top line scrolls to the last line on the previous screen.

This function brings all open SymmWin subwindows to the front.

Channel director descriptions Symmetrix DMX-4 channel directors are single boards that occupy one slot on the Symmetrix midplane. Symmetrix Enginuity contains extensive algorithmic intelligence that is designed to symketrix fast application response time. Since the LUN address used by the host was directly associated with the address configured guuide the FA port, the flexibility of this feature was limited. Search — Provides a search function for help. Other availability options may be purchased separately and implemented into the Symmetrix system operation.

Bad — The evaluation result.

Power System – check power cables — Displays the Cables tab. When configuring a metavolume, each metavolume device is counted as a single logical volume. Pools will have a used capacity threshold that can be set and management software can get notifications when threshold is met. Type dir name to remove. You can close one file or all files from the pop-up menu or the File menu.


Load and apply a table definition file — Loads and applies the table definition table?

Append buffer — A screen pops up to append a string. It also reduces performance management effort. All standard models of the or volumes can be emulated up to the physical volume sizes installed. Data records R1 through Rn All remaining records on a track are data records. Each channel director s adapter provides the interface to the host or network. The only way to view the entire system is through the environmental map Health Check tab.

EMC Symmetrix DMX-4 and Symmetrix V-Max: Basic Differences

Determines which logical device swaps would reduce physical drive contention and minimize average disk service times. Inlines provides a rudimentary hex dump of the currently selected line.

Splitting the director functions eliminates the processing overhead and global memory locking associated with Control Units that perform both functions.

That is, it has an index marker, home address HArecord zero R0and one or more data records R1 through Rn. Position the cursor on the edge of a window.

Makes all subwindows equal size. Hypervolume extension options on page Split-volume capability on page Extended cylinder addressing option on page Determining cylinders for hypervolume user data on page Hypervolume extension options The Symmetrix system enhances disk system functionality by supporting multiple logical volumes on each physical device.

ControlCenter product packaging is based on the storage resource management SRM solutions that follow. The matrix midplane provides configuration flexibility through the slot configuration.
