Creating a Virtual Pool

When you create a virtual pool, you choose the pool members from the logical devices in your storage space, then assign the pool to a tier level. Tier 0 is reserved for your fast media, such as an SSD pool.

To create a virtual pool:

  1. In the Enterprise View, open the maxCache Plus tree, then select the Virtual Pools tree node.
  2. On the ribbon, in the Virtual Pool group, click Create Virtual Pool.

    The Create Virtual Pool wizard opens.
  3. Enter the pool name (up to 31 characters), tier level, chunk size (64KB, 256KB, 1MB, or 4MB), and pool description (up to 63 characters), then click Next.

  4. Select the logical drive(s) you want to add to the pool, then adjust the pool capacity.
    Note: By default, the pool capacity equals the total capacity of the pool members.

  5. Click Next, review the pool settings, then click Finish.
