Why is there QoS latency after upgrading to ONTAP 9.3+?

Applies to

ONTAP 9.3 and newer


  • Upgrading to ONTAP 9.3 suddenly induces QoS latency from 9.1 or 9.2
  • Creating a new vserver after upgrade
  • Workload has not changed
  • Latency attributed to QoS Delay Center.
    • Example:
    • Cluster::> qos statistics volume latency show
      Workload        Latency    Network    Cluster       Data       Disk        QoS      NVRAM    Cloud
