As a pre-step to a planned failover, I want to take a snapshot of each of my Metro PD's (4 total). Together, they are over 5 TB in used storage. Since they're all in the same Storage Pool I plan on doing one at a time so as to not compound the i/o load - does this make sense?
Also, can anyone provide a *rough* estimate of how long a PD snapshot should take to complete?

I have completed the failover and found that the manually taken snapshots completed rather quickly. So I think it's safe to assume that these manual snapshots on a Metro PD use the initial full copy as a reference point thus making the time-to-complete rather small.
