Is there a dfm cli user guide?

Hi, just a general question.

NetApp prepares a DFM command use guide? I refer dfm xxx help but help messages are not enough to fully understand all options.

For example, I'd like to get historical data of volumes latency by a script using dfm commands. I think dfm perf data can be used. I'd like to know all the detail of its options.

Does anybody know if a dfm cli user guide exist?

Hi Mariko,

The documentation for the dfm CLI commands is available under "Operations Manager -> Help -> General Help" section.

You could also try this:

C:\Users\Administrator>dfm perf data list help

NAME

    list -- List the counter groups and data collected

SYNOPSIS

    dfm perf data list [-v | -h] [ -o <host-name-or-id> ]  [ -G <counter-group-name> ]

DESCRIPTION

    List all the counter groups and data collected

                -v : generates verbose information

                -h : generates perf data space usage per host

                -o : host name or host id. Generates counter group information for specific host

                -G : counter group name. Generates details of specific counter group.

Hope this helps.

Best Regards,

Pavan

Hi Tagawa-San,

     There is man pages for dfm cli, but its not available as a standalone guide.

As pavan said, it can be accessed via Operation Manager Console >Control Center > Help > General Help > Man Pages

In case of linux it can be accessed as follows.

linuxprompt>man -M /opt/NTAPdfm/man dfm

Re: Is there a dfm cli user guide?

Hi, Pavan. Thank you for the info. I'm a bit confused about "Operations manager". Do I need to install a new product "Operation Manager" to get the help page? I've already installed Oncommand system Manager and OnCommand Management Console. I'm looking at Help menu in those products but couldn't find the menu you gave me. I've looked for Operations manager in "Getting Started with netAPp Software" page. But I couldn't find it. So do I miss anything?

Re: Is there a dfm cli user guide?

Hi, Adai.

Thanks for your info.. As I reply to Pavan, I haven't installed "Operation Manager". But I can get by man command.

I'm wondering where I can get "Operation Manager".

Re: Is there a dfm cli user guide?

Hi Mariko,

Operations Manager console is available with the OnCommand Core Package installation.

It can be accessed via browser. By default, the address is:

     http://<DFM_Server_IP>:8080/dfm/

You could also directly access the Operations Manager help with:

     http://<DFM_Server_IP>:8080/help/dfm.htm

Best Regards,

Pavan
