Thanks Pascal for showing us the counter group to look for.
I'm running DFM 3.8.1 in the lab and if you run the NMC and look at creating a custom view in performance advisor you can see that the ext_cache_obj counter group exists along with all its sub counters.
So doesn't this mean performance advisor shoul dbe able to capture and report on historical information for PAM once a custom view is created?

Found out that NetApp give us a stats preset xml file in ontap 7.3.2+: /etc/stats/preset/flexscale-access.xml
stats show -p flexscale-access
Advantage is that you get nicer output of the most important pam statistics. There is also a preset file for the predictive caching: flexscale-pcs
I am also on DFM 3.8.1 and have not used it yet to collect PAM statistics. At the moment I am dumping 5 minute average PAM statistics to a file. Does anyone know PAM statistics are present by default in DFM 4.0?
