Forcing Block Size write to Centera
EV 10 sp2
I have an interesting request from a customer and EMC
The customer is busy with a Centera refresh project and they want to know if EV can be configured to write to the Centera in 256 K blocks. I can't find definitive information around how this can be done. They are using Collections and I did find this link around potential data loss if you configure the Windows Environmental Variables with the FP_OPTION_STREAM_STRICT_MODE
But I have 3 questions around this
- If we make the change in the Environmental Variables does this mean EV writes data in 256 k blocks?
- If we make this change would it cause data loss as the customer is on a version of EV that this bug doesn't apply to
- If this change doesn't force EV to write data in 256 K blocks how would you configure EV to do this as end of the day the customer and EMC is asking for this
