History

#1 Updated by Ricardo Duarte about 6 years ago

I created a TM driver for NetApp, that works in the following way:

- Before performing a clone, checks if target and source datastores are NetApp; if not, use regular cp
- If target and source are from the same volume on NetApp, do a flexclone (using ZAPI)
- If target and source are from a different volume inside the same NetApp filer, do a copy offload (using ZAPI)
- (NOT IMPLEMENTED, BUT SHOULD BE EASY) If target and source are from different netapp filers, do a ndmpcopy offload

I will try to cleanup the code and share it.

Ricardo, that is great news!! It would be very useful if you could share your code.

I'm attaching here a contribution by Iftikhar Rathore at CISCO in case it may help you in your development.

My driver uses the ruby bindings from the NetApp Manageability SDK.
I will just need to review the licensing terms to see if I can redistribute the SDK.
Otherwise, users will have to download it from the NetApp site.
