Increase VPG journal limit

  • Hi,

    How can I increase the journal size for a VPG? I don’t see the advance option in edit VPG anymore?

    Getting the following alert:
    The journal for VM XXXXXXXX in VPG XXXXXXXX has reached its configured limit of 1048576 MB. Older checkpoints might be removed and the journal history might be reduced to make space for new data.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    You can configure the Journal hard size limit on the Edit VPG>Replication tab>VM Settings.

    Once you will raise the hard size limit and new checkpoints will be taken, that alert will clear.

     

    Hi,

    I’m not seeing that option. Don’t have VM settings in the replication tab. This is v7.

    Please see the picture:

    Hello David,

    I wasn’t aware of the fact you are replicating to a public cloud.

    on public clouds, the journal hard size limit is allocated due to usage and with a limit of 1048576 which equals 1TB.

    I Will update that post in case I find any workaround to that limitation.

     

    Hello David,

    You can find the tweaks below to update the journal’s hard size limit.

    The size is an example of 2TB.

    t_overrideJournalHardLimitValueInMb=2097152
    t_vraSizeOfAwsJournalMB=2097152
    t_initialJournalLimitInMB=2097152

    In order to apply the tweaks kindly follow the instructions below:
