toggle parallel processing in command line

Post by raphael@schitz.net » Jul 19, 2017 9:23 am

Hi, I'd need to switch off parallel processing during week-end and re-enable it during week days but obviously i don't want to do it in GUI.
Is it possible to toggle the setting in powershell or anything i can schedule in the windows task scheduler?
Thanks

Hi,

What is your use case for toggling the setting depending in the day of the week?

Thanks

Hi,
The active full jobs are hammering the vSAN datastore but incremental are fine. Since storage latency control is not doing a proper job here (i'm still not sure it's supported on vSAN) the parrallel processing toggling is my simpler workaround.
Thanks for your help.

That's right, storage io control does not work with vVOLs and vSAN, the User Guide will be updated shortly.

I don't think it is possible to toggle parallel processing, however you could edit either a number of proxie's slots or a number of concurrent jobs on a repository using PowerShell.

Thanks

Thanks, i'll look into it even if that's not the easiest way.
The other way would have been to be able to set a different time for active full, but that's not possible either :)
