Manual node pools

If the node pools automatically provisioned by OneFS do not meet your needs, you can configure node pools manually. You do this by moving nodes from an existing node pool into the manual node pool.

This capability enables you to store data on specific nodes according to your purposes, and is available only through the OneFS command-line interface.

It is recommended that you enable OneFS to provision nodes automatically. Manually created node pools might not provide the same performance and efficiency as automatically managed node pools, particularly if your changes result in fewer than 20 nodes in the manual node pool.
