Storage Replication Adapter: Long running operations due to inefficient QOS Policy Group parsing

Last Updated:

  • ONTAP Tools for VMware vSphere (OTV) 9.10


When running a VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM) operation that triggers a device discovery, the following is observed:

  • Operation takes longer than expected
  • A bulk of the discoverDevices operation is spent on parsing flexvol QOS Policy Groups

For example, in the vvolvp.log, the following events show an example of where QOS Policy Groups are being evaluated. Based on the number of flexvols with QOS Policy Groups assigned, this parsing may take an extended period of time and encompass hundreds if not thousands of events (lines chopped for readability):
