We have been challenged with vault stability issues over the last few months. (Our vault getting set to read only). We are also looking at re-architecting our storage while addressing this to help improve performance and 'future proof'. Looking for advice and experience related to this. At least some of our issues are related to running out of iNodes on our NAS.
Our Enviro: WC 11.0 (soon to be upgrading to 11.2), ~13 TB and 135 million objects in a single external vault (NetApp, 7200RPM, 2TB drives)
- Are there storage advantages to using multiple vaults? Either by using vaulting rules to separate objects into multiple vaults, or by setting a vault to read only and activating a new one once a given size is reached? (Yes, we are using folder size limits with autofolder creation at 50k items).
- If more than one root folder is active, will files be written to both? If so, what determines what gets written where? Are multiple active root folders beneficial?
- What configurations can/should be done on the NetApp side?
- Does any of this vaulting strategy/advice change with 11.2? 12.0?
