System Latency counter is not getting any value although it has LUN and Volume Latency.

[ Edited ]

I am getting data from ONTAP cluster 8.2.3 simulator and comparing it with 8.3.2 simulator(fields). As this data is coming from a simulator, I have created LUN on this and mapped it with my local windows server to generate data.

 

I am getting  values into "avg_write_latency",  "avg_latency" counters for Lun Object using below CLI command:

statistics show-periodic -object Lun -instance <my_lun_instance> -counter avg_write_latency|avg_latency

 

but still I am not getting any value(except 0ms) for latency counters of system object:

 

statistics show-periodic -object system -instance system -counter sys_read_latency|sys_avg_latency

 

Here is counter info for this counter for 8.2.3 cluster-mode:

 

 

            <counter-info>
                <base-counter>write_ops</base-counter>
                <desc>Average latency for all write operations in the system in milliseconds</desc>
                <name>sys_write_latency</name>
                <privilege-level>basic</privilege-level>
                <properties>average</properties>
                <unit>millisec</unit>

 

Here is counter info for this counter for 8.3.2 cluster-mode: "sys_write_latency" counter is deprecated

 

 

            <counter-info>
                <base-counter>write_ops</base-counter>
                <desc>Note: This counter is deprecated and will be removed in a future release.  Average latency for all write operations in the system in milliseconds</desc>
                <is-deprecated>true</is-deprecated>
                <name>sys_write_latency</name>
                <privilege-level>admin</privilege-level>
                <properties>average</properties>
                <unit>millisec</unit>
            </counter-info>

 

 

            <counter-info>
                <base-counter>write_ops</base-counter>
                <desc>Average latency for all write operations in the system in milliseconds</desc>
                <is-deprecated>false</is-deprecated>
                <name>write_latency</name>
                <privilege-level>admin</privilege-level>
                <properties>average</properties>
                <unit>millisec</unit>
            </counter-info>

 

From the above counter info, Can we say that "sys_write_latency" counter is deprecated into ONTAP 8.3.2?

 

How to get write_latency for system into Cluster 8.2.3 simulator?

 

Am I missing something to get these counters? Can anyone please help?
