  2. Value of maximum configuration when all controllers and drives are mounted.
  3. Mixing SFF, LFF, FMD, and dense intermix drive trays might affect the maximum number of drives that can be mounted.
  4. If a drive is inserted into a slot of a dense intermix drive tray when the installed number of drives exceeds 240 slots per path, the drive is blocked.
Cache specifications

Item

Specifications

Capacity (GB)

64 GB

Control method

Read LRU, Write after

Battery backup

Provided

Backup duration

Unrestricted (saving to a nonvolatile memory)

Data in the cache memory is preserved against power failures. If a power outage occurs, data in cache memory is written to drives.

When the storage system enters Cache Backup mode, the amber WARNING LED goes on to when the system starts. This warning indicates that the battery charge has dropped significantly and the remaining battery capacity is not sufficient; the storage system will continue operating with the Write Cache function disabled.

When the battery is charged, the warning indication disappears, and the storage system continues the operation in the Write Cache function.

The warning indication disappears within six hours. Even when the warning is shown, normal operation is assured in Write-Through. Read and write performance is lowered because the Write Cache function is disabled.

If the storage system is not charged for more than six months, the battery can become overcharged and sustain unrecoverable damage. To avoid this situation, charge the battery more than 3 hours every six months.
