Deduplication and PAM statistic collection w/ Performance Advisor

Are there any flags in PA 3.8 that would allow users to monitor deduplication statistics? If so, can someone advise me which flags I should monitor to show the savings.

Also, what flags are exposed in PA that would allow a view into the PAM (flexscale) benefits, latency improvement, cache hits, etc.

Thank you in advance.

Leroy,


Dedupe can be monitored from OpsMgr 3.8 using the Dedupe and Lun Clone Savings Report which is avalable at:

http://dfmserver:8080/dfm/report/view/groups-dedupe-and-lun-file-clones-space-savings?lines=20

(this is a global view report but you can drill down to get this per volume)

Note: in order for this to work correctly you need to set the hostLogin/hostPassword in OpsMgr for the filers - you can do this either via OpsMgr or PerfAdv

There currently is no FlexScale or PAM card support in OpsMgr or PerfAdv

Cheers

Rich

Is there a plan to include and PAM statistics in Performance Advisor? If so, is it on the short term (4.0) or long term (2010+) roadmap.

PAM support in OM/PA is on the long term roadmap (CY 2010)

Thanks,
