How to Disable Netapp Flash Pool Caching Per Volume
The default caching action for volumes on a flash pool aggregate is to cache reads and writes, however you may have a use case to disable caching on a per volume basis.
To determine the caching policy of a volume, we have to jump into the node shell and set the diag privilege.
CLUSTER::> node run NODE1
NODE1> priv set diag
NODE1*> priority hybrid-cache show volume1
Read Cache Policy: random-read
Write Cache Policy: random-write
This is the default Read Cache and Write Cache policy setting, to cache random-reads and random-writes.
Valid settings are:
- Read Cache Policy: none, meta, random-read, random-read-write
- Write Cache Policy: none, random-write
