dfm perf threshold cli

I am trying to use cli to create perf thresholds,

can someone give the correct way to use this ?


C:\>dfm perf threshold create -o nycps-filer1a  -d 60 -e "cifs:cifs_latency" -C
cifs:cifs_latency 20  upper
Error: Invalid threshold specification: "cifs:cifs_latency".
Syntax is obj-type:counter-name threshold-value threshold-unit [ threshold-type
].

Syntax is obj-type:counter-name threshold-value threshold-unit [ threshold-type

Hi srikanth,

     Its just your syntax is incorrect.

[root@lnx ~]# dfm perf threshold create help

NAME
    create -- to create a performance threshold

SYNOPSIS
    dfm perf threshold create
                -o <object-name-or-id>
                -d <threshold-interval>
                -e <event-name>
                -C "<object-type>:<counter-name> <threshold-value>
                        <threshold-unit> [ <threshold-type> ]
                        [, <object-type>:<counter-name> <threshold-value>
                        <threshold-unit> [ <threshold-type> ] ...]"
                [ <property>=<value> ... ]


DESCRIPTION
    create a threshold on a given object. Combination thresholds can be created by specifying multiple counters using the -C option, separated by a ",".

[root@lnx~]# dfm perf threshold create -o 101 -d 300 -e evt_latency -C "cifs:cifs_latency  200 microsec upper"
Created new threshold (1).

[root@lnx ~]# dfm perf threshold create -o 101 -d 300 -e evt_latency -C "cifs:cifs_latency  200 microsec lower"
Created new threshold (2).
[root@lnx ~]# dfm perf threshold list
Id    Status     Event Name                                    Template
----- ---------- --------------------------------------------- --------------------

Re: dfm perf threshold cli

Hi,

I am having a similar issue. I have created an alarm for a group of objects called as "Tax_Storage_Units". The following are the details:

dfm server #dfm perf threshold list -x 95

Threshold Id: 95
Event Name: volume:total_ops
Interval: 900
Enabled: Yes

Template Info:

        Id: 20
        Name: TAX_IOPS_exceeding_3000

Object Info:

        Id: 101723
        Name: Tax_Storage_Units
        Type: resource_group

Counter Info:

        Counter: volume:total_ops
        Threshold Type: lower
        Threshold Value: 3000
        Threshold Unit: per_sec

#####################

Now I am trying to create an alert from this. I use the following command:

dfm server #dfm alarm create -E <email_id> -g Tax_Storage_Units -h volume:total_ops

Please note here that when I created the threshold, I had the event name as "volume:total_ops"; however the "dfm alarm create" command fails with the following error:

Error: Event 'volume:total_ops' does not exist.

Hello

 

Working config:

 

dfm perf theshold create -o filer1 -d 120 -e system:load_total_mbps -C "system:load_total_mbps 300 mb_per_sec upper"

 

dfm alarm create -T 10.10.10.10:3821 -h perf:system:load_total_mbps:breached -l 00:00 -m 23:59

 

Thanks
Nick
