StorNext 6.2 Release Notes

What’s New in StorNext 6.2

Purpose of this Release

The StorNext 6.2 release introduces several new features.

Most Comprehensive SAN and NAS Access – Now with Protocol Locking

As more organizations depend on broad collaboration among their staff to meet project deadlines and workflows extend from on-premise into the cloud, being able to effectively manage and access data across complex, hybrid environments has become a requirement for modern file systems. Now with the ability to provide cross protocol locking for shared access across SAN, NFS, and SMB, Xcellis is an optimal solution for organizations that need to share content across both Fibre Channel and Ethernet.

Integration with S3 Cloud-enabled Workflows

With StorNext 6.2 Quantum now offers an S3 interface to Xcellis appliances, enabling them to serve as targets for applications designed to write to RESTful interfaces. Organizations gain greater flexibility to use Xcellis as either a gateway to the cloud or as an S3 target for web-based applications.

New Cloud-Based Monitoring Tool Delivers Insights, Maximizes Uptime

With storage environments becoming increasingly complex, users need more powerful tools to proactively manage their storage resources. Xcellis environments can now be managed with a new cloud monitoring tool that enables Quantum’s support team to monitor critical customer environmental factors, speed time to resolution, and ultimately increase uptime. When combined with Xcellis Web Services – a suite of services that enables users to set policies, adjust system configuration, and more – overall system management is simplified and streamlined.

Quantum StorNext 6.2 includes new cloud-based monitoring tools.

Enhanced Multi-Site Data Synchronization

Available with StorNext 6.2, enhanced FlexSync® replication capabilities enable users to create local or remote replicas of multi-tier file system content and metadata. With the ability to protect data for both high-performance systems as well as massive archives, users now have more flexibility to protect a single directory or an entire file system.

Bolstered Functionality for Media Archives

Organizations that provide storage as a service to departmental users require additional management tools to support their business processes. StorNext 6.2 enables administrators to provide defined and enforceable quotas, implement quality of service levels for specific users, and allows for simplified reporting of used storage capacity. These new features make it easier for administrators to efficiently manage large-scale media archives.

The StorNext 6.2 release also provides important software fixes. See Fixed Issues and Enhancements Addressed in StorNext 6.2.

Caution: If your system is running StorNext 6.1.x or earlier, see Product Bulletin 103.

New Features and Enhancements in StorNext 6.2

Important Information Regarding Storage Manager Performance

As part of the StorNext 6.2 release, an upgraded version of the back-end MySQL database engine has been included to help resolve several security issues. The provider of this engine has changed certain settings to improve the product from corruption in the event of a crash.

Quantum agrees with the changes being included in the StorNext 6.2 release due to the added protection that they provide. As a result, there is a potential that retrieves of small files from a Storage Disk Media/Tier might have a performance impact. For 4K files, Quantum measured approximately a 20% to 25% reduction in retrieve performance from Storage Disk Media/Tier. As the file size increases, the reduction is amortized and has less of an impact on the resultant performance.

Quantum does not recommended you change the settings; however, if this is not an acceptable option and you have to change the settings and are willing to take the risks involved with changing this settings, contact the StorNext Engineering Team and reference Technical Support Bulletin Part Number 6-01194-80.

Important Information Regarding Upgrades to StorNext 6.2

WARNING: To implement some functionality and performance improvements to the Metadata Archive (mdarchive) in the StorNext 6.2 release, the schema for the database used by mdarchive has changed. As a result, upgrading to StorNext 6.2 causes FSMs to build new metadata archives, removing all metadata history generated prior to the upgrade. This means that tools snhistory and snaudit will not report any events that occurred prior to the upgrade and snrecover (not to be confused with fsrecover for managed file systems) will not recover any files deleted prior to the upgrade.

Important Information Regarding StorNext Licenses / Licenses for Features

Effective with StorNext 6.2, the following licenses are no longer supported:

  • Deduplication: A Deduplication license was required to use the StorNext Data Deduplication (blockpool) feature. This license is no longer available for either File System only or Storage Manager environments. Deduplication was licensed per terabyte (TB) of the blockpool.
  • Encryption: An Encryption license was required to create encryption keys and use them in storage manager policies for client-side encryption. This license is no longer available.

Also, the StorNext 6.2 release is the final supported version for the following licenses:

  • Solaris LAN Client: The Solaris LAN Clients used IP protocols to read and write data to the StorNext File System through Quantum appliances that can operate as a StorNext LAN Gateway. You must have a LAN Client license for each LAN Client you intend to use with StorNext (in addition to any SAN Client licenses).
  • Replication: A Replication license is required if you want to use the StorNext Data Replication feature. Replication is licensed on a per-MDC (or MDC pair) basis. If replication is used between multiple MDC sets, each MDC set must have a replication license. If deduplication is used in conjunction with replication, a separate deduplication license is also required.

    Note: There are two types of replication licenses – the File System only Replication license, and the Storage Manager replication license. If Storage Manager is in use on the MDCs, the Storage Manager replication license must be purchased even if the file system being replicated is not managed.

  • UNIX (AIX, HP-UX, or Solaris) SAN Client: The UNIX (AIX, HP-UX, or Solaris) SAN Clients enabled a host computer to mount a StorNext file system with direct block-level access to the disk arrays using Fibre Channel or iSCSI connections. The StorNext file system is licensed on a per-client basis. Any machine that directly mounts the file system is considered a client. If you are an Xsan customer, then you can use an unlimited number of Xsan clients when connected to a StorNext MDC.

Changes to the Maximum Inactive Versions Option for a Storage Manager Policy

Beginning with StorNext 6.2, the default number of versions of a file that Storage Manager keeps is 2 versions. For prior releases, the default was 10 versions.

If you want the default to be 10, you can perform one of the following tasks:

  • Using the StorNext GUI, you can configure the option when you create a policy class. See the Maximum Inactive Versions section within the General Tab heading in Add a Storage Manager Policy.
  • Using the command line interface (CLI), you can run the fsaddclass command to specify the default when you create or modify a class.
  • Using the CLI, you can run the an editor prior to creating a policy class to set the system parameter to CLASS_MAX_VERSIONS=10. The system parameter is located within the fs_sysparm_override file in the /usr/adic/TSM/config directory.

    Note: If you use the CLI to configure the system parameter, you must reboot Storage Manager for the configuration changes to take effect.

  • If you are upgrading from a release prior to StoNext 6.2, then the system parameter CLASS_MAX_VERSIONS is set to 10 in the fs_sysparm_override file, allowing the default to remain at 10 for all new classes created. If the system parameter CLASS_MAX_VERSIONS was previously set in the fs_sysparm_override file, then it will not be reset. If you want the default to be 2, you can perform one of the following tasks:
    • Using the StorNext GUI, you can configure the option when you create a policy class. See the Maximum Inactive Versions section within the General Tab heading in Add a Storage Manager Policy.
    • Using the command line interface (CLI), you can run the fsaddclass command to specify the default when you create or modify a class.
    • Using the CLI, you can run an editor prior to creating a policy class to set the system parameter to CLASS_MAX_VERSIONS=2. The system parameter is located within the fs_sysparm_override file in the /usr/adic/TSM/config directory.

      Note: If you use the CLI to configure the system parameter, you must reboot Storage Manager for the configuration changes to take effect.

Note: Whether you are performing a fresh installation or an upgrade, the backup class is automatically set to 10 versions. To change this, you can use the StorNext GUI, or the CLI to edit this value.

  • The options to the fsaddclass and fsmodclass CLI commands for account number and security code are being removed in a future release of StorNext. The respective options are listed below:

    -o acctnum

    -l securitycode

    Consequently, the JSON and XML outputs are no longer being reported in a future release of StorNext. The respective outputs are listed below:

    “acctNumber”: 12345,

    “securityCode”: “NONE”,

    The output NO LONGER displays the information below as part of the fsclassinfo command:

    Acct Number: 23456

    Security Code: 233

Enhancements to Storage Manager Processes

In StorNext 6.2, enhancements were made to the two Storage Manager processes below that perform directory scans as part of their normal operations:

  • fsaddrelation
  • fspolicy (in rebuild mode)

For both of these processes, the existing scan technology (mapping) was replaced with a new scanning mechanism.

Changes to the fspolicy Command

A new -C option was added to the fspolicy command that allows you to rebuild all candidate lists as part of the rebuild process.

Additionally, a new -A option was added to the command in rebuild mode. When this option is provided, a check for failed fsaddrelation processing is done and if any are found to be incomplete, then the processing is completed by the rebuild policy. This option is used by the regularly scheduled rebuild processing to catch any fsaddrelation attempts that may have been interrupted and you are not aware of.

For additional information, refer to the fsaddrelation and fspolicy man pages in the StorNext 6 Man Pages Reference Guide available on the PDFs Downloads page in the StorNext 6 Documentation Center.

Enhancements to the fsfiletapeloc Web Service Command

Prior to StorNext 6.2, the fsfiletapeloc web service occasionally produced duplicate fileinfo keys in its JSON output, causing the JSON data to be invalid. This occurred only when reporting on multi-segmented files. An example is shown below.

Note: The header, footer, and statuses objects/arrays have been collapsed for brevity.

{
   "header": {},
   "fileInfo": {
      "segmentNumber": 1,
      "mediaId": "ACD683",
      "libraryId": "Library1",
      "format": "ANTF",
      "startBlock": 56580,
      "offset": 128,
      "segmentSize": 99900000000,
      "blockSize": 524288
   },
   "fileInfo": {
      "segmentNumber": 2,
      "mediaId": "ACD682",
      "libraryId": "Library1",
      "format": "ANTF",
      "startBlock": 190550,
      "offset": 128,
      "segmentSize": 99900000000,
      "blockSize": 524288
   },
   "statuses": [],
   "footer": {}
}

Beginning with StorNext 6.2, the fileinfo has been replaced by a segments array within a files array. An example is shown below.

Note: The header, footer, and statuses objects/arrays have been collapsed for brevity.

{
   "header": {},
   "files": [
      {
         "fileName": "/stornext/snfs1/pol1/file1.txt",
         "segments": [
            {
               "index": 1,
               "mediaId": "ACD683",
               "libraryId": "Library1",
               "format": "ANTF",
               "startBlock": 56580,
               "offset": 128,
               "segmentSize": 99900000000,
               "blockSize": 524288
            },
            {
               "index": 2,
               "mediaId": "ACD682",
               "libraryId": "Library1",
               "format": "ANTF",
               "startBlock": 190550,
               "offset": 128,
               "segmentSize": 99900000000,
               "blockSize": 524288
            }
         ]
      }
   ],
   "statuses": [],
   "footer": {}
}

The fsfiletapeloc web service can also produce XML output. The XML output has also been corrected in a manner similar to the JSON fix. Below is an example.

Note: The header, footer, and statuses elements have been collapsed for brevity.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

For additional information, refer to the File / Tape Location section of the File Commands topic in the StorNext 6 Documentation Center.

Multiple Options Added to the fsmedcopy Command

For additional information, refer to the fsmedcopy(1) command and the fsfilecopy(1) command in the StorNext 6 Man Pages Reference Guide, and also the Media /Copy Media API command in the StorNext 6 Web Services Guide.

Enhancements to the fsretrieve Command

Beginning with StorNext 6.2, a new -A option was added which allocates disk blocks to files in alphabetic order in an attempt to provide sequential block allocation to all files in the specified directory.

Note: The -A option is only valid with the -D option.

Also, the fsretrieve command now supports the -t affinity option to retrieve files to a specific disk affinity on the file system. The affinity must be defined for the file system in which the files reside. An affinity denotes a specific disk or set of disks (a stripe group) on which the file system resides.

For additional information, refer to the fsretrieve(1) command in the StorNext 6 Man Pages Reference Guide and the File / Retrieve Files API command in the StorNext 6 Web Services Guide.

Changes to Commands that Provide Recursive Processing on Directories

Beginning with StorNext 6.2, the following commands are enhanced to include a new CLI option, -D, that only processes the directory and its contents.

  • fschdiat
  • fsexpcopy
  • fsfilecopy
  • fsfileinfo
  • fschfiat
  • fsretrieve
  • fsrmcopy
  • fsrmdiskcopy
  • fsstore

In addition, the CLI option, -D for the two commands below is changed to -C in order for the -D option to work the same way for all commands processing a directory.

  • fschdiat
  • fschfiat

Changes were made to the commands below that affect the handling of symbolic links (symlinks) when they are encountered by the commands.

  • fschdiat
  • fschfiat
  • fsexpcopy
  • fsfilecopy
  • fsfileinfo
  • fsrmcopy
  • fsrmdiskcopy
  • fsstore

With the updates, there is now more flexibility provided as to how symlinks are handled. Prior to this update, these commands mirrored the behavior of commands like ls or cd, symlinks were followed. Now, with command line options, behavior like the default of the find command can be requested where symlinks are not followed. While the default behavior of the find command is not to follow symlinks, the -H and -L options are provided by that command to allow for specifying symlink behavior.

The new options that were chosen for the SM commands are those same options provided by find. Users of symlinks are likely to be familiar with the operations of these options. As with the find command the new options to the SM commands behave as follows:

  • -H, when provided do not follow symlinks that are encountered.
  • -L, when provided follow symlinks that are encountered.

Note: One last change was made with respect to these new options. The fsfilecopy command already had a -L option which was used to specify a limit to the number of concurrent I/O operations. The -L option now specifies symlink behavior as with the other commands. The -O option is now used with fsfilecopy for specifying the operations limit.

For additional information, refer to the StorNext 6 Man Pages Reference Guide and the StorNext 6 Web Services Guide.

Enhancements to the Export and Import Functionality

The ability to export and import LTFS media was introduced in the StorNext 6.0 release. Beginning with StorNext 6.2, the export and import functionality is enhanced to support ANTF media. The ANTF export/import feature closely mirrors the support already in place for LTFS media, but there are two major differences.

  • StorNext LTFS media does not support segmented files, while ANTF media does support segmented files. The ANTF export/import feature fully supports ANTF media that contain segmented files.
  • The LTFS export/import feature works in either a Media Ingest mode or a File Ingest mode when importing data from media. The ANTF export/import feature supports the Media Ingest operation for ANTF media, but not the File Ingest operation. However, there is a manual process documented at Media Manifests that you can follow to achieve a File Ingest operation for ANTF media.

The overall export and import functionality is also enhanced in the following ways.

  • Tape manifests for both ANTF and LTFS media are now part of the export and import processing. A manifest file is generated for each tape that is exported. When media content is imported on a destination system, these manifest files provide more robust and efficient import processing.
  • Import processing now supports importing multiple media with one command.

Enhancements to the snquota Command

In releases prior to StorNext 6.2, the grace period argument to snquota (-t) would accept modifiers for hours, days, weeks, months and years (h, d, w, m/M, y).

Note: Both lowercase and uppercase M specified months.

In the man page, lowercase m is supposed to be minutes and uppercase M is months. Beginning with StorNext 6.2.0, the snquota command has been changed to do just that. However, if you were relying on lowercase m to mean months you must change to using uppercase M.

Below is an example of the new behavior to set a grace period of 60 minutes:

snquota -F data -S -u lisa -h 10g -s 9g -t 60m

Below is an example of the new behavior to set a grace period of 2 months:

snquota -F data -S -u lisa -h 10g -s 9g -t 2M

For additional information, refer to the snquota(1) command in the StorNext 6 Man Pages Reference Guide, and also the Quota / Manage Quotas API command in the StorNext 6 Web Services Guide.

Important Information About the RTIO and RVIO Functions

StorNext 6 introduced a new quality of service feature called Quality of Service Bandwidth Management (QBM). All quality of service enhancements are being made to QBM only. No further enhancements are planned for the RTIO and RVIO functions, which are being deprecated in a future release of StorNext software. For additional information, see Quality of Service Bandwidth Management (QBM).

Enhancements to LTFS Compression Functionality

Prior to StorNext 6.2, all data written to LTFS media was uncompressed and there was no way to modify this. The drive configuration setting did not affect this.

LTFS media require that, at format time, the setting for compression be set, otherwise the media is uncompressed.

Beginning with StorNext 6.2, any new media that is not formatted has compression enabled by default, if the LTFS format type is used. Media that already have data written to them remain unchanged and future data written to those media remain uncompressed.

Note: If you want to disable compression on your media, you can set the Storage Manager system parameter LTFS_COMPRESSION=false; in the /usr/adic/TSM/config/fs_sysparm_override file. After setting the system parameter, you must restart Storage Manager.

Features No Longer Supported Effective with StorNext 6.2

  • Data deduplication option
  • End-of-Life (EOL) DAS libraries
  • End-of-Life (EOL) AML libraries
  • File systems using small inodes
  • MDC support for SUSE Linux
  • Obsolete 3rd party tape drives
  • Partial File Retrieval (PFR)
  • Solaris LAN client
  • StorNext 4.x Web Services (WSAPI)
  • StorNext API (SNAPI)If you are running EDLM or ActiveVault in the Quantum i6000 or i500 tape library, your tape library must be at the following minimum firmware version:
    • Scalar i6000, i13 or later
    • Scalar i500, 710G or later

    Also, with EDLM and ActiveVault, you must enable and configure Web Services on the library in order to communicate with StorNext (see the Tape Library documentation for details on this configuration). You must perform this configuration, since SNAPI is no longer supported. In prior versions of the Tape library, communication with StorNext relied on SNAPI.

  • StorNext Web Services V1
  • UNIX SAN clients
