8.8. Activating and Deactivating a Snapshot

download PDF
Only activated snapshots are accessible. Check the Accessing Snapshot section for more details. Since each snapshot is a Red Hat Gluster Storage volume it consumes some resources hence if the snapshots are not needed it would be good to deactivate them and activate them when required. To activate a snapshot run the following command:
# gluster snapshot activate <snapname> [force]
  • snapname: Name of the snap to be activated.
  • force: If some of the bricks of the snapshot volume are down then use the force command to start them.
For Example:
# gluster snapshot activate snap1
To deactivate a snapshot, run the following command:
# gluster snapshot deactivate <snapname>
  • snapname: Name of the snap to be deactivated.
For example:
# gluster snapshot deactivate snap1
