Groom Priority

This page displays a list of the status of all of the backup jobs and their blockstores. There are three types of jobs that run to maintain a blockstore:

Tracking jobs
Scheduled to run every three days unless a previously scheduled blockstore job has not finished in that time. Tracking jobs also are scheduled to run immediately after a groom job. Tracking jobs determine the current ratio of living to dead blocks in blockstores.
Groom jobs
Scheduled to run when the ratio of living to dead bytes drops below 0.45. To learn more about grooming, see Groom page
Integrity Check Jobs
Scheduled to run every seven days unless a previously scheduled blockstore job has not finished in that time. These checks make sure that the blockstore has no data integrity issues.

Each blockstore can run only one blockstore job (groom, track, or integrity check) at a time unless you change its Load Factor. The Load Factor sets how many jobs that a blockstore can run at the same time. It is set to 1 by default.

To learn how to change the Load Factor, see Edit a Blockstore.

Each row in this table lists a backup job. Its background color indicates if the state of its associated blockstore is accurate and current.

Color Blockstore Storage Usage Status
Blue Amount of blockstore storage usage is changing. Blockstore groom job is in progress.
Green Amount of blockstore storage usage is accurate. Blockstore has run a tracking job since last groom job ran.
Red Amount of blockstore storage usage is stale. Blockstore has run a groom job since its last tracking job ran.

Manual Blockstore Maintenance

From this page, you can also perform three kinds of blockstore maintenance manually:

Move Blocks to a Different Blockstore
To move a backup’s chunks to a different blockstore, select the destination blockstore in the backup’s Blockstore List column. You might want to do this if you add a new blockstore and would like to balance data.
Groom a Blockstore
To initiate a groom job, click Schedule in the Groom Action column for the blockstore replica set you want to groom. You should not need to manually schedule groom jobs. Ops Manager runs the jobs automatically.
Check Blockstore Integrity
To initiate an integrity check, click IntegCheck in the Integrity Action column for the blockstore replica set you want to check. The Integrity Schedule Result modal appears and displays the status of the blockstore.
