Introduction to OceanStor 9000 V100R001C01 data balancing
OceanStor 9000 data balancing refers to the balancing of data capacity on storage nodes. After a disk or node is added, you can migrate it to make data evenly distributed on all storage nodes. OceanStor 9000 provides two modes of data balancing: - Manual balancing: After a data balancing task is manually started, the system checks whether data in each node pool is balanced in the system. If data is unbalanced, the system starts a data balancing task. - Automatic balancing: After a disk or node is added, the system waits 30 minutes and then starts a data balancing task. If the waiting time is shorter than 30 minutes and more disks or nodes are added, the system waits another 30 minutes before starting a data balancing task.

Manually starting data recovery using OceanStor 9000 V100R001C01
OceanStor 9000 V100R001C01 creates policies for automatic data recovery based on the following procedures: 1. Log in to OceanStor DeviceManager. 2. Choose Settings > Cluster Settings > Protection Policy > Automatic Data Reconstruction. 3. In the function pane, click Create. 4. In the Create Data Reconstruction Policy dialog box, select Execution Period and Impact, and click OK. - Execution Period defines the time segment during which the data recovery task is executed on the specified day every week. The periods specified in data recovery policies cannot overlap. - Impact indicates the level of the impact of data recovery tasks on system performance during the time segment specified by Execution Period. The level includes High, Medium, Low, Stop, and Full Speed. In the Succeeded dialog box, click OK. The page for configuring the data recovery policy is displayed.

OceanStor 9000 V100R001C01 data balancing policy levels
OceanStor 9000 data balancing policy levels are based on the impact of data balancing on normal services. These priority levels comprise the following: High: Data balancing causes system performance to deteriorate by no more than 50%. Medium: Data balancing causes system performance to deteriorate by no more than 30%. Low: Data balancing causes system performance to deteriorate by no more than 10% (by default). When a data recovery task and a data balancing task are both initiated, the former is performed prior to the latter.

OceanStor 9000 V100R001C01 data recovery for a failed node
OceanStor 9000 V100R001C01 recovers data for a failed node using the following methods: 1. If the failed node turns normal, OceanStor 9000 V100R001C01 recovers data changes within the offline duration to a normal node and ensures zero loss of original data on the failed node. 2. If the offline node requires an operation by the administrator, OceanStor 9000 V100R001C01 obtains the data on the failed node through calculations and writes the data to disks of other normal nodes.
