Performance Advisor counters

I am looking for a (understandable) description of each parameter that can be measured/monitored by Operation Manger/Performance Advisor.

In particular I'm looking for parameters that share information on:

  • the size of qtree/volume/aggregate
  • the cache hit rate , either with or without FlashCache.

Thank you

Jan

Hi Jan,

            There are lot of reports that give the size/ capacity of different objects being monitored by dfm.For cache hit rate refer the following KB.

Re: Performance Advisor counters

Hi Adai,

Thanks, it's a helpful howto. However I do wonder if there is a way to "script" this process, let's say I have 100 filers and it's just not possible to do the same "click-click-OK" process 100 times ...

Thanks,

Vladimir

Re: Performance Advisor counters

Hi Vladimir,

     All of the operations that could be done via NMC can also be done from CLI.

dfm perf view create is the cli to create custom views.

[root@vmlnx ~]# dfm perf view create help

  NAME

    create -- create a new view

 

SYNOPSIS

    dfm perf view create [ -o <perf-object-type> ] [ -S ] <view-name>

 

DESCRIPTION

    create a new performance view

     A performance object type can be associated with the view

    by specifying the '-o <perf-object-type>' option.

 

    Use -S to create a view with an events block.

[root@vmlnx ~]#

dfm perf help will give you the list of all cli associated with Performance Advisor.

Re: Performance Advisor counters

You can also use the performance APIs to collect information.
