In the MAPS Manager portlet, you can schedule moves after analysis using either System Monitoring or Object Workflows.

A move is the process of redistributing object data over system AMPs based on the map assigned to the object. This determines how many AMPs are activated when the object is accessed. You can schedule moves to occur during low system usage to reduce impact.

Only one move can occur on a system at any given time.

The move stage is an iterative process that moves objects to a new map according to the action list generated during the analyze stage. You can schedule the move or manually start the move after the analyze stage is complete.

The speed of the move stage depends on how busy the system is, how many workers are assigned, and the size of the objects.
