Applies to

  • ONTAP 9.2 - 9.7P15
  • CIFS Change Notify

Issue

  • Multiple seconds of latency is seen on FlexGroups
  • Node communication becomes unresponsive impacting SAN and NAS protocols
  • The virtual machine (VM) or application on the LUN may be down and unable to connect to the LUN
    • High latency is seen like with qos statistics:
      Cluster::> qos statistics latency show -node node1
