my $filer = NetApp::Filer->new( .... );
DESCRIPTIONThis class encapsulates a single NetApp snapshot, and provides methods for querying information about the snapshot, as well as methods for managing it.
get_parentReturns the NetApp::Aggregate or NetApp::Volume object for the aggregate or volume for which object is a snapshot.
get_nameReturns a string representing the name of the snapshot.
get_dateReturns the date the snapshot was created.
get_usedReturns the percentage of space used by snapshot.
get_totalReturns the percentage of total space used by the snapshot.
get_snapshot_deltasReturns an array of NetApp::Snapshot:Delta objects, each representing a single delta for this snapshot.
get_reclaimableReturns the amount of reclaimable space, if the snapshot is deleted. Note that experimentally, this command has a lot of failure scenarios, most of which are reasonable (there are a lot of cases where you can't query this data). Therefore, unlike most of the methods in this API, it doesn't raise a fatal exception if it can't query the information, it simply generates warnings.
rename( $newname )Renames the snapshot to the specified name.
restore( %args )This method is an interface to the ``snap restore'' command. The argument syntax is:
$snapshot->restore( type => 'vol' | 'file', # Defaults to vol from_path => $from_path, to_path => $to_path, );
The 'type' argument maps to the -t CLI argument, and the 'to_path' argument maps to the -r CLI argument. Refer to the na_snap(1) man page, and the ``snap restore'' documentation for further information.
