After a host group and a LUN group are added to a mapping view, the application server, host group, and LUN group are logically associated. Then the application server can detect the LUN in the LUN group. For details about creating a mapping view, click Creating a Mapping View .

Working temperature of OceanStor V3 storage systems
5°C to 35°C when the altitude is lower than 1800 m 5�?to 30�?when the altitude is between 1800 m and 3000 m

Functions of the intelligent acceleration module in SmartDedupe&SmartCompression
SmartDedupe&SmartCompression occupy CPU resources that are not used by other applications to compute fingerprint information, compress data, and decompress data. Therefore, if deduplication and compression are performed on more LUNs simultaneously, the impact on system performance is greater. After the intelligent acceleration module is installed, you can transfer the related operations to hardware to release system resources. It is recommended that you contact Huawei technical support to determine whether to install the intelligent acceleration module.
