Estimate IOPs capacity with OnCommand Performance


Where can I view the IOPs capacity of a volume within OnCommand Performance?  I don't want to know how many IOPs are being served, but how many IOPS CAN be served for a specific volume.





In OPM 7.0, there is a metric "Available IOPS" for node and aggr. which indicates the number of IOPS that can be added to the resource before reaching the maximum performance capacity.

There is no metric for estimated IOs on an aggr, but you can compute it.

See my reply to IOs on a volume:


Given that disk drive utilization on the aggr may be the key metric to monitor.

(<50% average is the Best Practice)
