How can I show the monthly trend for average lun latency

I have Operations Manager and can easily get a graph of lun latency, which show the highs and lows over the month period.I can also drill into this view and get a better idea as to what is happening during the required time frame but I need to know what the trend is doing?

Looking at the graphs I can see my SQL server is heading for trouble but I need something in a report that I can put in front of a manager and say “buy be X because, or else”.

Has anyone cracked this nut yet?

Thanks

Sorry to reply without any suggestions, but can I ask how you generate the latency graph?

No problem and welcome to the forum.

Go into ops manager with admin rights

set up / Custom Views / Add a new custom view

Say Exchange. Select the category of the server you need and the luns. Pick ave lun latency counter

Wait while some data is logged

Select the Exchange custom view and OPEN.

Continuing from the other thread..

I created a user in the db using:

C:\Program Files\NetApp\DataFabric\DFM\bin>dfm database user create -u dbuser

C:\Program Files\NetApp\DataFabric\DFM\bin>dfm database access enable -u dbuser

On the server ops mgr was installed on I was then able to use the system dsn called "MonitorDB"

I managed to find some of the stats I was using, by picking the views under DFMGroup

For example some of the volume stats were in the VolumeView and I did a join on objectView.objId & volumeView.volId

I've yet to find the historical data I was looking for.. I got fed up of trying to learn crystal reports so went to trusty MSQuery and Excel!

Thanks. I must be missing something basic.

I have 3.6 installed, and I've logged in with an account that has GlobalFullControl. But I don't see anything in the Setup menu that has to do with views (Options, Discovery, Groups, Administrative Users, Roles, Alarms, Database Backup, Download Management Console).

Bugger.. looks like you might be right, it says in that document that the views dont provide access to historic data, looks like an export for them..

How crap is that?

Re: How can I show the monthly trend for average lun latency

Got it. I was working in the main Ops Manager console, not in Performance Advisor.

Thanks.

Have version 3.7. Can export to CSV. Excel to get average.
