Manage a manual QoS capacity pool
This article describes how to manage a capacity pool that uses the manual QoS type.
Set up a new manual QoS capacity pool
To create a new capacity pool using the manual QoS type:
Follow steps in Create a capacity pool.
In the New Capacity Pool window, select the Manual QoS type.
Change a capacity pool to use manual QoS
You can change a capacity pool that currently uses the auto QoS type to use the manual QoS type.
Setting the capacity type to manual QoS is a permanent change. You cannot convert a manual QoS type capacity tool to an auto QoS capacity pool.
At conversion time, throughput levels might be capped to conform to the throughput limits for volumes of the manual QoS type. See Resource limits for Azure NetApp Files.
From the management blade for your NetApp account, click Capacity pools to display existing capacity pools.
Click the capacity pool that you want to change to using manual QoS.
Click Change QoS type. Then set New QoS Type to Manual. Click OK.
Monitor the throughput of a manual QoS capacity pool
Metrics are available to help you monitor the read and write throughput of a volume. See Metrics for Azure NetApp Files.
Modify the allotted throughput of a manual QoS volume
If a volume is contained in a manual QoS capacity pool, you can modify the allotted volume throughput as needed.
From the Volumes page, select the volume whose throughput you want to modify.
Click Change throughput. Specify the Throughput (MiB/S) that you want. Click OK.
