Swarm Pro Tip of the Month

Swarm 8 performs replicate-on-write (ROW) by default which:

  • Eliminates any window for data loss since ROW guarantees that all necessary replicas are written on the initial request
  • Improves cluster performance, since overhead associated with the HP is lowered as a result

In previous versions, Swarm created replicas of objects asynchronously. If the previous behavior of asynchronous replication is desired, you can change the parameter ‘scsp.replicateOnWrite’ to ‘False’ (default is ‘True’). This can also be done dynamically via SNMP by changing ‘autoRepOnWrite’ to the same value of ‘False’ using snmpset or equivalent.
