Automate Performance View Creation

Can I use the dfm command to automate performance view creation? If so, can you supply an example?

Thanks,

Brian

Re: Automate Performance View Creation

Yes, You can do that. Here you go...

You need to use "dfm perf view create" command for that.

# dfm perf view create -c f270c-filer:system:system:cpu_busy cpuview 300 172800

View cpuview created successfully

#

The above view is created with the name "cpuview" for 5 mins (300 secs) sample rate with 2 days (172800 secs) sample buffer.

# dfm perf view create help
