RAM is shared between the server OS, ggRock Application, and virtual machines running on the ggRock server. By default ggRock manages the RAM Cache size automatically in order to maximize performance, which is the recommended setting (The box for "Maximize size" should be checked).
If desired, this setting may be manually configured, including the following values:
RAM Cache Size - The amount of memory used for high-speed temporary data caching.
Maximum RAM for VMs - The amount of memory set aside for ggRock virtual machines.
Server Reserved - The amount of memory reserved for the Operating System and critical processes.
Dark mode UI
Toggle Dark Mode on or off for the entire ggRock Web UI depending on your preference.
By default this setting should remain at "Prod", however if you are a member of the ggRock Power Users Cohort, you may gain access to early releases if you are a volunteer center with guidance from ggRock Support.
Virtual Machine Network Bridge Configuration Status
Red - Network Bridge is NOT configured
Green - Network Bridge IS configured
Auto-Configure Bridged Network
If the network bridge is not yet configured, it may be configured by clicking the
"Auto-Configure Bridged Network" button.
Array and Images
Import ggRock Disk- The default and recommended setting is to automatically import the existing ggRock array when the ggRock server application is launched.
Disabling this setting may result in accidental loss of data if an action is taken that would create a new array, for example.
Warning threshold - When your array reaches a defined threshold, warnings will be displayed within the ggRock Web UI.
Reserved disk space - To preserve the server, operations resulting in large amounts of data usage are automatically restricted at a defined threshold. These operations include restriction of PXE boot operations as well as restriction of snapshot creation.
Snapshots and Writebacks Retention Settings
Unutilized Snapshots - After a defined period, snapshots will automatically be deleted to conserve space.
Unprotected Snapshots - After a defined number of snapshots have been saved, unprotected (and not locked) snapshots beyond this number will be deleted to conserve space.
Inactive Writebacks - After a defined period of inactivity, writebacks that are not in use will automatically be deleted to conserve space.
For more information on configuring these settings, please refer to Automated Snapshot and Writeback Removal.
Please refer to the "Updates" article for more information on Software Update.
