offbox_vscan not sending data to graphite.

[ Edited ]

Based on the "NetApp Harvest Administration Guide" I created a new poller configuration for offbox_vscan statistics, below is the contents of the new template file.


-----------------------------------------------------Additional Template start-------------------------------------------------------------


%poller =   (

	'offbox_vscan' =>
				counter_list     => [ qw(instance_name instance_uuid

									) ],
				graphite_leaf    => 'svm.{instance_name}.vscan',
				enabled          => '1'


-----------------------------------------------------Additional Template stop-------------------------------------------------------------


I added the poller as addtional template in netapp-harvest.conf


template = default,cdot-vscan.conf


When starting the worker manually with verbose it outputs the variables to the screen

./netapp-worker -poller my-nas -v

But nothing is sent to graphite, iether when running separately or when running under the manager.


I added the smb2 example to the same file and smb2 data was sent to graphite.


Why does vscan data not get sent to graphite??.




Re: offbox_vscan not sending data to graphite.

To answer my own question, It is working.


AV was disabled on SVM because of a performance issue, so I disabled scans on all CIFS volumes, enabled AV on the SVM and setup an OnDemand scan.  Voila Data.


I believe data is only collected if its changing.

Re: offbox_vscan not sending data to graphite.

Hi @Deligatedgeek


Indeed, Harvest only submits non-zero data.  If it submitted zeros too there would be a lot more metrics submitted (ex: per protocol stats for every volume even though quite likely only 1 protocol is active).  Sometimes you want zeros, but usually not.


Glad you got it working and were able to add some customized counters for collection; this is exactly what I was hoping to enable with Harvest!


If you care to share your conf file and grafana dashboards I'm sure others might like to have them, or I could incorporate into a future version of Harvest.
