VSAN Cormac Blog ~ VSAN6.1 新機能 – 問題のあるディスクの取り扱い ~

VMware Japan Cloud Infrastructure Blog

すでにお気づきの方もいらっしゃると思いますが、VMware Virtual SAN 6.1 リリースノートに下記の項目が追加されています。 Virtual SAN は、ソリッド ステート ドライブと磁気ディスク ドライブの健全性を監視し、健全でないデバイスをアンマウントしてそれらのデバイスを事前に分離します。また、Virtual SAN ディスクの段階的な障害を検出し、影響を受けるホストと Virtual SAN クラスタ全体で輻輳の状態になる前にそのデバイスを分離します。アラームは、健全でないデバイスが検出されたときと、健全でないデバイスが自動的にマウント解除された場合にイベントが生成されたときに、各ホストから生成されます。 この記事では、このすばらしい新機能に関するより多くの情報をご紹介する事が目的です。   歴史 まずはこの機能が必要となる背景をご紹介します。 我々はSSDや磁気ディスクドライブの不健全な動作が引き起こす問題に関していくつかの問合せを受けていました。 あるケースでは、ディスクから多くのエラーが報告されているにもかかわらず、故障には至っていませんでした。 最終的にこの1本のディスクにより、クラスタ全体のパフォーマンスの低下を引き起こしていました。 この新機能で実装された監視機構により、これらの不健全なディスクを未然に切り離し、クラスタ全体に影響を与えない事が可能となります。 この機能では、SSDもしくは磁気ディスクドライブで、長期間にわたり大幅な処理の遅延が発生していないかを探します。 VSANは特定のデバイスで長期間にわたる大幅な処理の遅延が確認されると、遅延デバイスがキャパシティデバイスの場合はディスクをアンマウントし、遅延デバイスがキャッシュデバイスの場合は、キャッシュデバイスが所属するディスクグループをアンマウントします。 対象のディスクもしくはディスクグループは”Absent”としてマークされ、CLOMD(Cluster Level Object Manager Daemon) タイマーの期限が切れると、クラスタの他の領域でコンポーネントのリビルドが行われます。 この動作により、一つの健全でないドライブによる影響を受けずに、仮想マシンのパフォーマンスが保たれます

Whether at home, on the road or working at the local coffee shop, they need to access corporate resources to do their jobs. Traditionally, IT required employees to use a VPN client and manually connect to the network each time a user moved off the corporate premises. With the entire device connecting through the VPN, that approach offers a frustrating experience to users and increases the risk of data leakage by exposing company data to potentially malicious apps.
