The volume efficiency policy modify command can be used to modify the policy attributes.

The attributes of the inline-only predefined policy cannot be modified.


-vserver <vserver name> - Vserver

This specifies the Vserver on which the volume is located.

-policy <text> - Efficiency Policy Name

This specifies the policy name.

[-type {threshold|scheduled}] - Policy Type

This specifies the policy type. The policy type defines when the volume using this policy will start processing a changelog. There are two possible values:

  • threshold means changelog processing occurs when the changelog reaches a certain percentage.

The percentage at which the changelog will be processed. The percentage is checked on an hourly basis. The default value is 20. Valid only if -type parameter is set as threshold .

[-qos-policy {background|best_effort}] - QoS Policy

This specifies how the efficiency operations are throttled. This option can be configured to be background or best-effort . Default value is best-effort . If background is specified, the efficiency operations are run with minimum or no impact on the data serving client operations. If best-effort is specified, the efficiency operations might have some impact on the data serving client operations.

[-enabled {true|false}] - Enabled

This specifies whether the policy is enabled or not. Default value is true.
