At a customer site of our application I have seen that they do
rsh primaryhost snap create appfiles appfiles_0710
rsh secondaryhost snapmirror update -S primaryhost:appfiles secondaryhost:appfiles
During both commands our application is quiesced.
Because the commands run on different hosts I wonder if that could be optimized.
Could snap and snapmirror on the two hosts run at the same time and thus reduce the quiesce time interval?
Searching the documentation at NetApp I found a tool snapcreator for which doing both tasks together is described.
Is it faster than calling snap and snapmirror separately in sequence?
Does snapcreator require a separate license? Or is it likely that our customer can use the command out of the box?
