dfm perf view create cli

I am trying to use cli to create perf view
What should be object name ?,tried few other ways

C:\>dfm perf view create  -c nycps-filer1a:e0a:ifnet::total_errors  IFNET_ERRORS1
300 172800
Error: Invalid counter specification.
A valid  counter must be of the form:
Everything but the appliance-name field can have the "*" to indicate  any.
If the ':' appears in any field, the ':' must be replaced by a  '::',
otherwise the ':' will be treated as a separator and not part of the  field name.

C:\>dfm perf view create  -c nycps-filer1a:ifnet:e0a:ifnet:total_errors  IFNET_ER
RORS1 300 172800
Error: Counter ifnet/ifnet not found for host  nycps-filer1a (80)

    The format of perf-counter is <object-name>:<counter-name>:<label1-name>:<label2-name>
