we are using the DWH to create a monthly report to the management with different capacity information. Currently we have only the deduplication information in our report and wanted to add the compression data.
As I can see, currently the compression information only is collected for cDOT systems. Is there plan to also collect the data for the 7Mode systems?
Interesting, I wasn't sure if people were actually using compression in the field on 7 mode.
I am not seeing recent OCI ASUP from you, so I don't have the raw data handy.
If you could, create a data source error report in the webui for a 7 mode system where you are using compression - I am curious to see if we are collecting this data, and not reporting it, or if we are not collecting it.
If you could send me the error report at ostiguy at netapp dot com , I will take a look
We triaged this with Matthias' help, and we tackled this as a minor enhancement with our monthly "shift" engineers working on support issues. We have a test patch available for OCI 7.2.x.
Ping me if this is of interested to you.
Edit - too late in a long week. This patch is NOT for 7.1.x, as OCI 7.1.x doesn't have the compression attributes we are populating, and as such, this enhancement cannot be backported. Time for the weekend.
