Get-NcEfficiency vs Restricted volumes

Hi,

 

I noticed that when I have a restricted volume the cmd Get-NcEfficiency fails.

 

PS Prompt> Get-NcEfficiency

Get-NcEfficiency : Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
At line:1 char:17
+ Get-NcEfficiency <<<<
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (liauc94:NcController) [Get-NcEfficiency], NullReferenceException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : ApiException,DataONTAP.C.PowerShell.SDK.Cmdlets.Toolkit.Efficiency.GetNcEfficiency

 

Is this a normal behavior?

 

Thanks

Re: Get-NcEfficiency vs Restricted volumes

Well, the same behavior happens to me...so I would say it is "normal".  Is it the intended or desired result, probably not : )

 

I'll open a bug for this...thanks for pointing it out!

I was just wondering if I was the only one having that issue.

 

Thanks!

Was there ever a bug filed for this?  I there an existing work around in place?  When  i try to run Get-NCEffiicnecy i get the same results, unsure if its a bug within the toolkit or something within my code.

 

$cdot_controllers= (Get-Content $controllers) | Out-string | ConvertFrom-Json

foreach ($cdot_controller in $cdot_controllers | where {$_.Vendor -eq "NetApp" -and $_.Location -eq "Data Center" -and $_.OS -eq "CDOT"}){

$cdot_connect = Connect-NcController $cdot_controller.ClusterServer -Credential $cred

$cdot_aggregates = Get-NcAggr | ?{ $_.Name -notlike "*root" }

$cdot_efficiency = Get-NcEfficiency

foreach ($cdot_aggregate in $cdot_aggregates) {

$cdot_total_tb +=$cdot_aggregate.TotalSize

$cdot_available_tb +=$cdot_aggregate.Available

}

foreach ($cdot_vol in $cdot_efficiency) {

$cdot_dedupe_tb +=$cdot_vol.Returns.Dedupe

}

}

Re: Get-NcEfficiency vs Restricted volumes

Hello @Alcazar,

 

This was created as bug id 986240.

 

You could exclude the root aggregates and get only online aggregates using this query...

 

Get-NcAggr -Query @{ AggrRaidAttributes = @{ IsRootAggregate = $false; State = "online" } }

 

Likewise, the same works for volumes to return only non-system volumes...

 

Get-NcVol -Query @{ VolumeStateAttributes = @{ IsVserverRoot = $false; IsNodeRoot = $false; State = "online" } }

 

Which should eliminate the issue of returning aggregates which the Get-NcEfficiency cmdlet can't operate against.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Andrew
