ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

lun import throttle

Modify the max throughput limit for the specified import relationship

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the advanced privilege level.


This command throttles the speed of the import for a given LUN by specifying a maximum throughput limit on the import.


-vserver <Vserver Name> - Vserver Name

Specifies the Vserver that contains the LUN to which data from the foreign disk is imported.

-path <path> - LUN Path

Specifies the path of the LUN to which data from the foreign disk is imported. Examples of correct LUN paths are /vol/vol1/lun1 and /vol/vol1/qtree1/lun1 .

-max-throughput-limit {<integer>[KB|MB|GB|TB|PB]} - Maximum Throughput Limit (per sec)

Specifies the maximum amount of throughput to be allocated for processing import requests on the bound LUN. At the time of creation, the default is zero. A value of zero implies that import traffic is processed by the system at best effort rate along with on-going user I/O. A non-zero value indicates that import will be throttled at a rate which is at most the maximum throughput limit set.


cluster1::*> lun import throttle -vserver vs1 -path /vol/vol1/lun1 -max-throughput-limit 3M

The above example limits the import speed for the bound LUN with path /vol/vol1/lun1 to a maximum of 3MB/s.
