Operation Management

Operation management is to manage storage plan and storage configuration, at the same time you can configure the device.

4.1.1 Parameter Setup

In parameter setup interface, you can set record pack duration, storage capacity information and log service. There is a reserve record time to set below.See Figure 4-1.

The pack duration is for you to specify file length. If you set five minutes here, then all recorded files are of five minutes video.

Reserved volume setup is very useful in case the system is down when the recorded files have occupied the whole storage capacity. If you set 10G here, then system automatically overwrites previous records when system free capacity is 10G.

Here you can also enable log service and set log saved path. The setup here applies to the SVR service log. Please note if there is no storage configuration, you can not select the log saved path.

The servers of record, transfer and storage need to know the communicate IP of the device, please choose one of the bond0, eth0 or eth1.

The recorded files will be deleted when the capacity of storage pool is less than 10G. It can added some important times below to avoid this. First choose a begin time and a end time, then click Add button. The recorded files in the added times will reserved until delete the specified times.

System is now running properly. Configuration status is normal.

You can refer to the following contents for system status and configuration status information. z

System status:

It is the storage directory status in the system. If system status is normal then the storage directory can run properly. If there is abnormal phenomenon, then the data from he storage plan may loss, it has close relationship wit the proper record operation of the storage plan, it affect the storage data security and integrity. z

Configuration status:

It means configuration information of current storage directory can be saved in the system configuration file or note. If there is configuration file being saved, then configuration status is use, which means the recorded data of corresponding storage plan can be saved in the storage directory. If there is no corresponding information in the configuration file, then the recorded data can not be saved in the specified storage directory.

ESS3015A and SVR

Disk rack connects to HBA via miniSAS cable. HBA connects to SVR via PCI or PCI-X slot. You

can refer to Figure 6-1.

Figure 6-1

One SVR can connect to two HBA and one HBA can connect to two SVR devices. One

ESS3015A can install 15 SATA disks. So ESS3015A device can effectively extend SVR capacity.

In this chapter, we talk about how to extend SVR capacity. Though ESS3015A (disk rack) is an extensible device, but for SVR device, it just adds some available disks in the system. The Web operation and share application is the same as SVR. Here we merely talk about the difference.

7 Appendix A ---Terms Explanation

Here are some terms explanations in this user’s manual. z

SVR: It is the abbreviation for Storage video recorder. It adopts large capacity HDD, RAID technology to store large data and can guarantee high safety. z

DVR: It is the abbreviation for digital video recorder. z

SATA:It is the abbreviation for serial ATA. In current released Serial ATA 2.0, data transmission speed can reach 300MB/second. z

RAID: It is the abbreviation for redundant array of independent disks. It is to combine several independent HDDs (physical HDD) to form a HDD group (logic HDD) to provide more storage capacity and data redundancy. Now it consists of seven levels, ranging from RAID0 to RAID6.Besided, it has some basic RAID combination groups such as RAID10 (RAID0 and

RAID1, RAID 50(RAID 0 and RAID 5). Here is a comparison between RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID

5. In this manual, we call RAID5, RAID 1,RAID0 as RAID5 device, RAID1 device and RAID

0 device respectively. z

RAID0: RAID0 is so called Striped Disk Array without Fault Tolerance. It represents the highest storage performance in RAID level. RAID0 is to read-write continue data in several

HDD. So, system data query will be performed in several HDDs at the same time. z

RAID1: It is also called Mirror or mirroring. Its aim is to maximally guarantee data safety and restorable. RAID1 is to automatically copy user input data fully to other RAID1 HDDs. z

RAID 5: RAID5 does not backup the storage data. Instead, it will memorize data and corresponding verification information to HDDs of RAID5. The data and verification information will be backed up in different HDDs respectively. When data in one of the HDDs is damaged, system can use the rest data and corresponding verification information to restore the lost data.

Synchronization: After creating RAID 1or RAID5, before using, system needs to read-write the HDD at a fixed speed and adopts an algorithm to calculate. This process is so called synchronization. During the synchronization, system performance speed is very low. z

Hot spare disk: It is disk set as hot spare. When RAID1 or RAID5 lost disk, while the RAID configuration is OK, the hot spare disk can auto replace the lost disk. After it replaced the disk, it can become one of the RAID and does not have hot spare function any more. z

Storage pool: it is a virtual logic device. It can consist of several HDDs and RAID group. It is a main way to realized virtual storage. z

Storage folder: Local PC access the top path of the share storage space. You can create, remove, authenticate and set valid user at the storage device. It includes general record space and alarm record space to save different record types. z

Storage plan: The storage plan integrates the external connected device record and SVR record. It can specify the record device time and record data storage position. z

Reusable account: You need to use user name and password to access DVR, IPC or NVS.

System allows the different operators to login the different devices b using the same account.

The account is so-called reusable account. z

Management status: It is a device status when controller configure device via web. Actually, when there is no error or damage, device shall be always in management status. z

Working status: It is a device status when controller access HDD via network. System is ready to use after you configure correctly in accordance with this user’s manual. Some nondevice error (such as configuration error, hot swap error) may result in device failure. You can configure again to boot up the device. But

data loss

may occur during this process.

8 Appendix B Disk Hot Swap Operation

Hot swap operation instruction.

When device is in management mode (Please refer to appendix A---Terms Explanation), after dismantle or insert disk, system is still in management mode and no damage to the system and disk. Whether system is in working status (Please refer to the terms explanation), it depends on the administrator operation.

Here we talk about how to operate hot swap operation while at the same time guarantee device is always in working status.

Note:

Only RAID5 and RAID1 can guarantee data safety and support data restore function. So, before your operation, please make sure the disk group to be hot swapped is set to be the RAID1 or

RAID5.

When RAID device is in working status, RAID1 and RAID5 support hot swap one disk. After hot swap, the working RAID 1 and RAID 5 become degrading level. If you dismantle one more disk, it may result in

data loss

in the whole group disk!

Now system only support hot swap in degraded RAID5/RAID1 group, and then RAID device becomes ready status. Device returns to working status after disk synchronization.

Note: please use SVR when RAID is in working status.

Hot swap only be operated when RAID is in working status, otherwise it may result in data loss in RAID device!

z

Ready status:

It only applies to RAID1/RAID5, e.g these disk groups are in RAID synchronization. When disk group are in ready status, in the web configuration interface, from disk management to RAID configuration, you can see the corresponding RAID group status is

“ clean

, degraded

, recovering

. z

Working status:

it only applies to RAID1/RAID5. It is a RAID status after synchronization.

When disk group are in ready status, in the web configuration interface, from disk management to RAID configuration, you can see the corresponding RAID group status is

“ clean

, degraded

, recovering

. z

Degraded status:

It only applies to RAID1/RAID5. e.g the working RAID disk group status after hot swap a disk. When RAID is in degraded status, in the web configuration interface, from disk management to RAID configuration, you can see the corresponding RAID group status is

“ clean

, degraded

.

Operation example

The RAID5 and RAID1 have the same hot swap operation steps. Now we take RAID5 as an example.

63

SVR User’s Manual

In SVR, there is a RAID5 disk group consists of four disks (dsk1, disk2, disk3, disk4.). All these four disks are in working status.

Note: SVR max supports 16 SATA disks. But for performance and safety consideration, we recommend RAID 5 consists of four to six disks, RAID1 consists of two to three disks.

Note: Here we just take four disks as an example. When your disk amount is more than 4, the operation is just the same.

1). Disk hot swap example.

In web configuration interface, from disk management to disk information, you can see the

information before hot swap. See Figure 8-1.

Here you can see the following information: z

In SVR, disk group has four disks. z

The four disks are: dsk1, disk2, disk3, disk4. z

These four disks are corresponding to channel 1 to channel 4 respectively. z

All disks are in running status, which means there is no error.

Figure 8-1

2) In web configuration interface, from disk management to RAID configuration, you can see current RAID device status.

Before hot swap, please

make sure

the disk to be hot swapped is in RAID5 (RAID1) and RAID5

(RAID1) is in working status. See Figure 8-2.

Figure 8-2

3). Log out disk to be hot swapped.

In Figure 8-2, click edit button of the corresponding RAID device. You can see an interface is

shown as in Figure 8-3.

Here you can see the following information: z

RAID 5 device md0 total space is 698.66, and it consists of four disks. z

The RAID status is in working status. (Clean mode). z

The group consists of four disks: disk1, disk2, disk3, disk4. z

There is a newly added disk list.

Check remove button after disk1 and then click save button. Now you are about to remove disk1.

64

SVR User’s Manual

Figure 8-3

4).In web configuration interface, from disk management to disk information, you can see the

disk information after hot dismantle: disk1 is in free status. See Figure 8-4.

Now there are two options: z

You can remove the disk1 from the rack. z

You can insert the disk1 into other RAID5/RAID1 in degraded mode. And then create storage pool and share folder to provide share service.

Figure 8-4

5).In web configuration interface, from disk management to RAID configuration, you can see

RAID device status. See Figure 8-5.

After hot swap disks, RAID5 device from working status to clean, degraded status. Current

RAID5 disk group can still work properly.

65

SVR User’s Manual

Figure 8-5

6). Hot swap disk

In web configuration interface, from disk configuration to disk configuration, you can see the disk

status. Disk3 corresponding channel number is channel 3(Please refer to Figure 8-4), now you

can remove the corresponding disk from the rack.

7).In web configuration interface, from disk configuration to disk configuration, you can see the

RAID status information. See Figure 8-6.

Figure 8-6

8).from disk to RAID, you can view the RAID device status after hot swap. See Figure 8-7.

The RAID status after hot swap is the same with that before hot swap.

Figure 8-7

Now you can refer to the following part for inserting a new disk.

Hot insert disk example.

Note: The hot insert operation only applies to the disk group that has been hot swapped.

It is to guarantee data safety.

1). In web configuration interface, from disk configuration to disk configuration, you can see the

following information. See Figure 8-8.

Figure 8-8

66

SVR User’s Manual

2). Insert the disk directly to the idle disk channel of SVR and memorize the disk channel name

(such as disk1). In this example, we are going to insert the disk1 that just was removed.

From disk management to disk information, you can review disk information before hot swap.

And then check disk information again after hot swap.

Compare the information before and after hot swap. You can see before hot swap, there are three disks: dksk2, disk3, disk4. After hot swap, you can see the there are four disks: disk2, disk3, disk4, disk1. Now you can see the newly inserted disk name is disk1.

3). In web configuration interface, from disk configuration to disk information, you can see the

disk information. See Figure 8-9.

Figure 8-9

4).In web configuration interface, from disk configuration to RAID configuration, you can see the

following RAID device status. See Figure 8-10.

Since current disk group md4 is in degraded status, you can add disk now.

Figure 8-10

5). Insert hot swap disk.

In Figure 8-10, click edit button, you can see an interface is shown as in Figure 8-11.

Now please check the add button and then click save

Please note, hot swap operation only applies to degrade RAID1/RAID5

RAID begins synchronization again after hot swap.

67

SVR User’s Manual

Figure 8-11

Note:

Since newly added disk information take “disk volume” as a symbol (such as disk1), so in the step (2) please memorize hot swap disk name.

6).In web configuration interface, from disk configuration to disk configuration, you can see the

disk information. See Figure 8-12.

Figure 8-12

68

SVR User’s Manual

7) In web configuration interface, from disk configuration to RAID configuration, you can see the

following RAID device status. See Figure 8-13.

Figure 8-13

Note: after hot swap, RAID5 device status is from “degrading” to “recovering” and begins synchronization.

During the hot swap process, system data will not be damaged.
