    Your able to add the auto healing feature, in OnApp version 5.3, onto Integrated storage datastores to repair degraded disk to be complete by the OnApp system without having the manually select repair.  To find more information about this feature please check the following link:  https://docs.onapp.com/display/IS/Integrated+Storage+Auto+Healing

    I noticed this on our new onapp platform and it does take quite a bit of time to fix these disks.

    I spoke to Support about this issue yesterday and they made it sound like this feature is already in the works (along with an alerting system for disks that need repair).

    I agree that this is a process that must be as automatic as possible.

    I think this feature is essential to making onapp storage a credible alternative to other SAN technologies. 

    And to help us sleep at night....

    There is a CLI command to repair all degraded disks right now and they're working on an alerting system (perhaps already implemented, haven't had to repair disks since 3.1)

    Hello all,

    In OnApp UI update 3.1.2 we released a new diagnostics page. This is accessible via the left-hand pane under Integrated Storage. One of the many checks / utilities is the ability now to kick off a repair all. This makes it easier to repair all the VDisks under the IS system.

    Since 3.1.2, many of the reasons for VDisks becoming degraded have now been resolved. If you are on earlier versions of OnApp and are having issues with IS we strongly recommend planning an upgrade.

    More information about the diagnostics can be found at https://docs.onapp.com/display/32AG/Diagnostics

    Release notes can be found at https://docs.onapp.com/display/RN/Release+Notes

    alerting sucks.. NO SNMP monitoring or no alerting for degraded disks !

    Agree with Kris.

    Meanwhile we added "extend .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.7890.2 getdegradedvdisks /usr/bin/getdegradedvdisks" to /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf on our HVs to be able to monitor diskstatus via snmp and a self-written nagios-plugin.

    Is there any ETA for this one?

    ideally this should auto repair... right now we have to click repair disks in diagnostics, it should just start straight away as why would anyone want to leave disks degraded?

    Chris you might not wish the auto upgrade to start messing with the system when there is a problem. Say you have an intermittent switch issue or problem with one network card. It could easily overload and destabilise the system while you are fixing it, and might not solve the problem.

    Just my two cents, email alert if something goes degraded would be useful though.

    I agree with Dominik, maybe have it as a on/off/alert type feature, where if you want it then you can enable it, or not, or just have an alert email sent at the time a disk becomes degraded (not hourly or nightly in the summary report like we have now) and yet still keep the ability to repair all manually like we have now.

    The ability to automatically repair out of sync disks is planned and we will update when there is further news.
