We are using replication between Nimble arrays on NImbleOS 3.7. The default Volume Collection replica count is two. Seeing that Veeam is going to manage our replicas, I thought I would be clever and set the retention on the arrays to "999". After setting a few Volume Collections to 999 the GUI started throwing this error:
Which leads me to believe that there are quotas under the covers I am not aware of. From some Googling I found some old 2.x articles saying there is a 10,000 snap limit which seems like what I ran into in 3.x. A) Are there plans to raise this limit? I'd love to keep a week's worth of hourly backups across all volumes. Let's say 100 volumes x 168 snaps = ~17000 snaps. C) It appears the per volume collection limit is a hard set 150 snaps. Can this be changed or will it be increased in future releases? An hourly snap for a week is at least 168. An every 15 minute snap (hooray super low RPO requirements ) for a week puts us at 672 snaps.
Sure feels like 100k snap limit and 1000/volume collection is something to shoot for if not already on the roadmap.
