Pause Mirror


Resume Mirror


You may pause a mirror to temporarily stop all writes from being replicated to the target disk. For example, you might pause the mirror to take a snapshot of the target disk or to increase I/O performance on the source system during peak traffic times. 

When the mirror is paused, it will be mounted for read (or read/write with kernel 2.6.19 or higher) access at the normal filesystem mount point on the target system. Any data written to the target while the mirror is paused will be overwritten when the mirror is resumed.
