The goal of this document is to better understand:
- How to grow storage from BUI and CLI on ZFSSA
- After-effects and limitations of growing storage
- Specific behavior to following profiles and ways to workaround the spare-hungry algorithm when growing storage
- - mirror
- - three way mirror
- - single-parity RAID
- - double-parity RAID
- - triple-parity RAID
|N||= Number of disks|
|BD||= Base disks (i.e., number of disks in initial pool configuration)|
|AD||= Additional disks (i.e., number of disks being added while expanding storage)|
|TB||= Terabytes of raw capacity (1000^4 = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes)|
|TiB||= Terabytes of usable capacity (1024^4 = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes)|
When this document refers to disks, that means data disks and not log, cache, or spare devices.
Although this information can be applied to data disks of any size, the examples assume data disks are 2TB.
