Increase iNodes on Netapp FAS

May 28, 2020 Jordansphere NetApp


Our alerting system notified us that inodes were nearing the system limit on a CIFS share (aka unipod_cifs) on a FAS running ONTap 9



The following command will shiow current usage


volume show  {cifs_name} -fields files, files-used


volume show unipod_cifs -fields files, files-used



To increase the inodes use the following syntax

volume modify -vserver  {cifs_name}  modify {cifs_name} - files {value}

In this example I will increase the cifs share to 25 million.

volume modify -vserver  unipod_cifs modify unipod_cifs - files 25000000
