Create IBM Storwize Pool
- Create IBM Storwize Pool
- This task creates a new storage pool. A pool or storage pool is a collection of MDisks that jointly contain all of the data for a specified set of volumes. All MDisks in a pool are split into extents of the same size. Volumes are created from the extents that are available in the pool. You can add MDisks to a storage pool at any time either to increase the number of extents that are available for new volume copies or to expand existing volume copies. You can specify a warning capacity for a storage pool. A warning event is generated when the amount of space that is used in the storage pool exceeds the warning capacity. This is especially useful in conjunction with thin-provisioned volumes that have been configured to automatically consume space from the storage pool.
