Grafana Graphite netapp-harvest and moving volumes across controllers (C-DOT)

After volume moves the data does not reflect the position of the moved volume on the controller. The data still shows the volume as being on the old controller. Data is being shown on the dashboard for the volume. Is there a wait to force an update or should the volume move be reflected in the data automatically?

Hi @dryan0211

 

Graphite uses a tree hierarchy for managing metrics and Harvest places volumes under SVM.  Here is an example:

 

 

 

netapp.perf.nl.nltl-infra-vmware.svm.svm-vmware-prod.vol.nltl_infra_nfs01.avg_latency

Which from a description perspective has these hard-coded and variable names:

 

 

netapp.perf.<site>.<cluster>.svm.<svm-name>.vol.<vol-name>.counter

 

As such, vol moves from one node in the cluster to another will be tracked just fine because node is not in the list.

 

Maybe you can clarify what you see?
