get-naperfdata wafl (include suspend_because and no data returned)

using toolkit version 1.7

i get no data back when doing:

get-naperfdata wafl

but if i leave out "suspend_because" and pass a list of all other counters then i get data back:

can anyone else confirm this behavior?

is it a bug or something in my environment?

Re: get-naperfdata wafl (include suspend_because and no data returned)

Mark, it appears this is working as designed.  You just need to look inside the Counters field to see the data:

PS C:\> (Get-NaPerfData -Name wafl -Instances wafl -Counters cp_count).Counters

Name     Value

----     -----

cp_count 822534,310,0,15106,50732,2419,0,65985,18,0,0,0

If you want to see a full example of how to use the perf cmdlets, you can also check out this post of mine.

Re: get-naperfdata wafl (include suspend_because and no data returned)

i don't believe it is -

try this:

(get-naperfdata -name wafl -instances wafl -counters cp_count,cp_phase_times).counters

and then this:

(get-naperfdata -name wafl -instances wafl -counters cp_count,cp_phase_times,suspend_because).counters

for me, the first returns data but if suspend_because is included then i don't get anything back.

Thanks for the clarification, Mark.  Yes, I see the same behavior, even when just interacting with Data ONTAP using the raw API XML.  This would appear to be a Data ONTAP bug.
