Item

Description

System Type (VSP 5000 series)

Storage system type: Open or Mainframe.

Journal ID

Identifier for the journal, displayed in ascending order. Blank if no number is available.

Journal Volume Selection

  • Total Selected Capacity: Capacity of selected journal volumes.

Total Selected Journal Volumes

Number of journal volumes selected in the Select Journal Volumes dialog box.

Total Selected Capacity

MP Unit ID

Journal MP unit. Options are:

  • Availability depends on system configuration.
  • Auto: The default. Available when one or more MP units can be assigned automatically. If Auto cannot be selected, the default is the MP unit with the lowest number.

Inflow Control

Controls the flow of update data to the journal volume by slowing the response to hosts.

  • Enable: The flow of update data is restricted.
  • Disable: The flow of update data is not restricted.

Data Overflow Watch

Number of seconds the system will monitor metadata and journal data when the journal volume is full (100%). When the metadata area or journal data area is full and no more data can be stored, the system regards this as an error and suspends the pairs in the journal. Range is 0-600 seconds. The UR default is 60; the URz default is 20.

In a 3DC multi-target configuration in which three UR sites are combined, if the status of the two mirrors in the primary site is Active and the free space in the journal data area or metadata area is less than a certain amount, one of the mirrors in the journal will be suspended by error, regardless of the value in Data Overflow Watch.

Cache Mode

Whether to store journal data in cache memory on the restore journal.

  • Enable: Journal data is stored in cache memory. When the available cache memory becomes insufficient, the journal data is also stored in a journal volume.

However, this setting is enabled if you use the horctakeover command of CCI (for Universal Replicator) or the YKRESYNC REVERSE command of Business Continuity Manager (for Universal Replicator for Mainframe) to change the master journal to the restore journal.

Timer Type (VSP 5000 series)

Type of clock used for consistency time. Values must be the same on primary and secondary storage systems. Displayed only when Mainframe is selected for System Type.

  • System: The local storage system acquires the time-stamp information for each journal data.

    When a URz pair is created, the local storage system reports state-change-interrupt (SCI) to all hosts. The host then issues a series of sense group commands to determine the device status change. The local storage system returns the same response as if the device was added to an XRC session to activate I/O time-stamping for the device. When I/O time-stamping is activated, the MVS IOS routine adds the time stamp information (contents of time-of-day (TOD) clock) to each write I/O instruction for the device. A time stamp indicates the time when an update was made on the main host during start sub-channel (SSCH). Time stamps are transferred to the local storage system at each start I/O instruction.

  • Local: The local storage system does not obtain time stamp information from host I/O time stamp.
  • None: The local storage system obtains time stamp information from host I/O time stamp. Available only when copy direction is reversed, S-VOL to P-VOL.

Add

The journal setting in left hand side window is added to the Selected Journals table.

Description

Inflow Control

Whether flow of update data to the journal volume is restricted by slowing the response to hosts.

Data Overflow Watch

Number of seconds the system will monitor metadata and journal data to the journal volume when the journal volume is full (100%). The field is blank if Inflow Control is disabled.

When the metadata area or journal data area are full and no more data can be stored, the system regards this as an error and suspends the pairs in the journal.

The range is between 0 and 600, and the default is the value set when the journal was created.

In a 3DC multi-target configuration in which three UR sites are combined, if the status of the two mirrors in the primary site is Active and the free space in the journal data area or metadata area is less than a certain amount, one of the mirrors in the journal will be suspended by error, regardless of the value in Data Overflow Watch.

Cache Mode

Indicates whether journal data is stored in cache memory on the restore journal.

  • Enable: Journal data is stored in cache memory. When the available cache memory becomes insufficient, the journal data is also stored in a journal volume.
  • Disable: Journal data is stored in a journal volume instead of cache memory. This setting is disabled in the master journal. However, this setting is enabled if you use the horctakeover command of CCI (for Universal Replicator) or the YKRESYNC REVERSE command of Business Continuity Manager (for Universal Replicator for Mainframe) to change the master journal to the restore journal.

Timer Type (VSP 5000 series)

Type of clock used for consistency time. Values must be the same on primary and secondary storage systems. Displayed only when Mainframe is selected for System Type. Not displayed for UR journals.

  • System: The local storage system acquires the time-stamp information for each journal data.

    When a URz pair is created, the local storage system reports state-change-interrupt (SCI) to all hosts. The host then issues a series of sense group commands to determine the device status change. The local storage system returns the same response as if the device was added to an XRC session to activate I/O time-stamping for the device. When I/O time-stamping is activated, the MVS IOS routine adds the time stamp information (contents of time-of-day (TOD) clock) to each write I/O instruction for the device. A time stamp indicates the time when an update was made on the main host during start sub-channel (SSCH). Time stamps are transferred to the local storage system at each start I/O instruction.

  • Local: The local storage system does not obtain time stamp information from host I/O time stamp.
  • None: The local storage system obtains time stamp information from host I/O time stamp. Available only when copy direction is reversed, S-VOL to P-VOL.

Item

Description

Port Attribute

Port I/O flow:

  • Target: Receives I/O commands from a host
  • Bidirectional

Port Security

LUN security (Enabled or Disabled)

Port Speed

Transfer speed, in Gbps, for the selected Fibre Channel port.

If Auto is selected, the storage system automatically sets the data transfer speed to 4, 8, 16, or 32 Gbps.

Caution: These cautions must be observed when setting speed on a Fibre Channel port:

  • If a port supports 4, 8, 16 or 32 Gbps, use 4, 8, 16 or 32 Gbps for the port speed, respectively.
  • If the Auto Negotiation setting is required, some links might not be up when the server is restarted. Check the channel lamp. If it is flashing, disconnect the cable, and then reconnect it to recover from the link-down state.
  • If the port speed is set to Auto, some equipment might not be able to transfer data at the maximum speed.
  • When you start a storage system, HBA, or switch, check the host speed displayed in the Port list. If the transfer speed is different from the maximum speed, select the maximum speed from the list on the right, or disconnect, and then reconnect the cable.
  • The available port speed that is specified in Port Speed is limited due to the combination of the type of the Fibre Channel port and the topology that is specified in Connection Type.
  • If the transfer speed of the CHB (FC) port is set to Auto, the data might not be transferred at the maximum speed depending on the connected device. Confirm the transfer speed displayed in Speed in the Ports list when you start up the storage system, HBA, or switch. When the transfer speed is not the maximum speed, select the maximum speed from the list on the right or remove and reinsert the cable.
