Unable to create a volume capacity report for a timelane

Hi,

i have tryed this, but i only get one Line and not the last Year.

Re: Unable to create a volume capacity report for a timelane

This command will not create volumes-capacity report. "dfm report view" command  only list the volume capacity detail

Please use "dfm report create" command to create the custom report.  "volumes-capacity" is canned report, so you can not create volumes-capacity report you can only view it.

I think, you want to view the report.

Please let me know for any further assignment.

Hi Martin,

     Only the following performance reports support historical values are you expect.

[root@vmlnx208-161 ~]# dfm report | grep -i performance-summary

  storage-system-performance-summary performance summary of storage system

  storage-system-NAS-performance-summary NAS performance summary of storage system

  storage-system-SAN-performance-summary SAN performance summary of storage systems

  aggregates-performance-summary performance summary of aggregate

  volumes-performance-summary performance summary of volume

  volumes-NAS-performance-summary NAS performance summary of volume

  volumes-SAN-performance-summary SAN performance summary of volume

  qtrees-performance-summary performance summary of Qtree

  luns-performance-summary  performance summary of LUN

  disks-performance-summary performance summary  of Disks

  array-luns-performance-summary performance summary  of array LUNs

  vfiler-performance-summary performance summary of vFilers

[root@vmlnx208-161 ~]#

The other capacity report always show the last sample value. If you are looking for historical value of a volume you must use the graph.

dfm graph -s 5184000 -e 0 cpu-3m system1

The following document explains how storage capacity mangement is done in Operations Manager/DFM/OnCommand.

Hi,

i know this, i have used the wrong spelling. I,am able to create new reports and so on. I known how to create perfdata for a time period.

My question based on this:

sfjdedcap028:~ # dfm report view help

NAME

    view -- Generate one of several reports

SYNOPSIS

    dfm report view [ <options> ] <report-name> [ <report-arguments> ... ]

DESCRIPTION

    The report command runs one of several pre-defined searches

    and presents the results.

    Use 'dfm report list' to get the list of reports.

    Use 'dfm report view <report-name> help' to see

    the description of a report.

    The options are

        -g <group-id or group-name>

        -F <output-format>

        -l <lines>

        -q (quiet)

        -s <sortby-field>

        -x (show all fields; only in perl output format)

        -N <repeat-for>

        -i <repeat-interval>

        -t <timeout> (in seconds; for streaming reports)

        -H show deleted objects

        -P time frame signifies the period to fetch performance data.

           Valid values are 'last, 1d, 1w, 1m, 3m and 1y'. This option

           is valid only in conjunction with performance reports.

and why this command "dfm report view -F csv -P 1y   volumes-capacity 2870 " don,t work as i expect.

I need this report but not only for the actual ammount auf data. I need this for the last 12 Months

Regards

Martin

Re: Unable to create a volume capacity report for a timelane

Hi,

i have found the solution:

dfm graph -F csv -D '%a, %d %b %Y %H:%M:%S' volume-usage-vs-total-1y 4107

This is what i needed.

Regards

Martin
