vxprint output description

Hi I am nwbie in vxvm, I want to understand a scenario,Kindly help me on this,

 

a) In this vxprint o/p, what does these 4 plexes means.. which type of RAID configuration it is, if there are 2 plexes or 5 plexes what  would be the RAID configuration.

b) What is meant by DISKOFFS & LENGTH mentioned here.. in SD section. Does that size in 512-byte blocks or 1024-byte blocks?

c) What is 0 denoted here after LENGTH in SD section?

 

Here is the output,

Hello, I would recommend to

Hello,

I would recommend to read through the guides to understand different types of volume layouts . Start with sf admin guide

To answer your questions

a) In this vxprint o/p, what does these 4 plexes means.. which type of RAID configuration it is, if there are 2 plexes or 5 plexes what  would be the RAID configuration.

--> This depends on how volume was created. You can have two plexes in RAID 1 i.e. mirrored state (if both the size of plex is same), you can have them in concat or stripe. OR you can also have them in RAID 1+0 or vice versa which means concat-mirror, mirror-concat, stripe-mirror or mirror-stripe. These are called layered volumes. A layered volume will have an object called sub-volume which is denoted by "sv". You seem to have a sub-volume which indicates you might have a layered volume which may be concat-mirror or mirror-concat. Read through below link in detail

b) What is meant by DISKOFFS & LENGTH mentioned here.. in SD section. Does that size in 512-byte blocks or 1024-byte blocks?

Length would actually denote the size of subdisk in a volume .. depending on layout of volume, various sub-disks will form a volume. )Length x 512) / 1024 / 1024 /1024 will give you size in GB. you can try converting a volume size into GB. Diskoffs as the name indicates are disk offsets

c) What is 0 denoted here after LENGTH in SD section?

refer to legends at the beginning of the vxprint output, the sd line legends are

   SD NAME         PLEX         DISK     DISKOFFS LENGTH   [COL/]OFF DEVICE   MODE

the 0 here would indicate the column/offset

So if I take this one as, sd

So if I take this one as,

 

sd awasdat02-19 migration-P05 awasdat02 54526986 8388608 0        c1t2d0   ENA

Does that mean,on disk awasdat02 has size  of 54526986 *512 /1024/1024/1024 = 26GB  out of which 

8388608 *512/1024/1024/1024 = 4 GB available.

No, vxprint output will never

No,

vxprint output will never tell you available space .. you can only see available space via filesystem (not at the volume level)

Compare the headers once again

SD   NAME              PLEX              DISK          DISKOFFS         LENGTH   [COL/]OFF DEVICE  

sd   awasdat02-19   migration-P05   awasdat02     54526986          8388608         0        c1t2d0      

That means 54526986 is disk offset while 8388608 (4GB) is the length of this subdisk
