Description

The New-SCStorageQoSPolicy cmdlet creates a storage Quality of Service (QoS) policy on one or more storage file servers.

Examples

Example 1: Create a multi-instance storage QoS policy with maximum IOPS settings for a single file server

PS C:\> $FileServersToAdd = @()
PS C:\> $FileServersToAdd += Get-SCStorageFileServer -Name "FileServer01c"
PS C:\> New-SCStorageQoSPolicy -Name "MAXIOPSPolicy" -Description "" -PolicyType "MultiInstance" -IOPSMinimum "0" -IOPSMaximum "10000" -StorageFileServer $FileServersToAdd

This command creates a multi-instance storage QoS policy with maximum IOPS settings for a single file server.

Example 2: Create a single-instance storage QoS policy with minimum IOPS settings for two file servers

PS C:\> $FileServersToAdd = @()
PS C:\> $FileServersToAdd += Get-SCStorageFileServer -Name "FileServer01c"
PS C:\> $FileServersToAdd += Get-SCStorageFileServer -Name "FileServer02c"
New-SCStorageQoSPolicy -Name "MINIOPSPolicy" -Description "" -PolicyType "SingleInstance" -IOPSMinimum "5000" -IOPSMaximum "0" -StorageFileServer $FileServersToAdd

This command creates a single-instance storage QoS policy with minimum IOPS settings for two file servers.
