Storage Efficiency Dashboard

keahey

I have installed this in my lab and started showing this to everyone and am getting a lot of interest in this.  One of the things that i would like to find out if there is a way that this type of information can be pulled from ASUP's and put into something like this.  As a member of the assessment team, we started using the Stoage Efficiency graphs on the Premium Autosupport site for each controller, but what we want to be able to do is provide that information to the customer as a global view like this dashboard does.  Is there anything that we can use to do this to roll that data up like this dashboard does?

is there anyways you can check the URL and post it again?  i can't view the page and i'm facing the same issue when running ./dfmeff "Error opening the keystore: 2  Unable to load keystore."

thanks you!

Hi All,

Ive done some work on this and the "Error opening the keystore: 2  Unable to load keystore." error seems to be the executable not running from where it expects. We run DFM scripts from a completely differrent location to the original install path. If you copy the dfmeff folder to your original install location:

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\NetApp\DataFabric Manager\DFM\script-plugins\dfmeff

(This is for my install... for me) then run the dfmeff.exe from the command line there it works. It drops the xml files in the folder you run it from. If you run from the dfmeff folder just copy the complete folder to the default web location

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\NetApp\DataFabric Manager\DFM\web\dfmeff

Then you can fire up the efficiency dashboard as you would expect.

You cant run the script from the dfm gui, you cant use the "update" button in the gui.

This seems like a bug and ive reported it in case: 2004062717

Hope this helps.

Martin,

Can you let me know the version of DFM and SED that you are running ?

I did hear that US PS team had made a tool to do such kind of stuff.

Will pass on if I can find that one...

keahey

Thank you so much for this.  That is one awesome tool.  Hopefully at some point, they will include the aggr show_space in the future so we can get that information in as well.

Version 1.3 is available for download. Which works with OnCommand 5.0 and 64bit machines.Below is the link to the same.

A few months ago I updated to OnCommand 5 64-bit version and observed the storeff plugin stop working.  I just updated to the 1.3 64-bit plug-in but it gives this error:

PS X:\script-plugins\dfmeff> .\dfmeff.exe

Path init paht X:/script-plugins/dfmeff/dfmeff.exe

Error opening the keystore: 2

Unable to load keystore.

Unable to free SQL environment.

PS X:\script-plugins\dfmeff>

Ideas?

Did you uninstall the 1.2 version?

What OS?

madden

I had done an upgrade not a fresh install, but after reading your note I uninstalled and installed again but the same error persists.

Any updates?  The problem persists...

dlynch

The error shows that the plugin is installed in the wrong location:

     "Path init paht X:/script-plugins/dfmeff/dfmeff.exe".

All script plugins are required to be installed in the script-plugins directory under the DFM installation folder.  For a 64 bit DFM installation this would be in "C:\Program Files\NetApp\DataFabric Manager\DFM\script-plugins\dfmeff"

Can you recheck and reinstall if necessary?

REGIS_GARRUCHET

But what if DFM has been installed in another folder than the default one (or migrated using dfm commands, so the database, perfdata, etc are not in the program folder) ?

IMHO, in many customer environments, data files for DFM are not under Program Files...

Regis

dlynch

The dfmeff plugin is an executable program and as a plugin requires access to the dfm executable and libraries.  I must be installed in the correct path relative to the dfm's bin directory to function.  The location of the DFM database doesn't matter.  Not sure about the perfdata...

REGIS_GARRUCHET

OK,

To make this particular plugin to work, should we reinstall Oncommand in the default directory ? That won't be possible.

Does it mean, that if one customer installed oncommand in any other directory (in my experience, most customer I know do that because they don't want anything on c:), the plugin won't work ?

I can't understand this well, since the plugin is installed by DFM that knows where the plugin directory stands.

DFM calls the dfmeff.exe when scheduled, and dfm binaries are in the path, so they can be called by dfmeff.exe without any issue.

Regis

dlynch

It must be installed in the correct path relative to the dfm's bin directory to function.  So if the DFM bin is in X:\Foo\DataFabric Manager\DFM\bin then the plugin executable must be in  X:\Foo\DataFabric Manager\DFM\script-plugins\dfmeff.

hawkstar1

I have installed the plugin as per what you noted here and still get an error on running;

Path init paht e:/DFM/script-plugins/dfmeff/dfmeff.exe

I was wondering if the mispelling of 'paht' might be part of the problem but no matter what I have tried it will not run.

Any help would be appreciated.

Kenn

hawkstar1

I replied via email, not sure if you got it but what I found is that my OnCommand is installed on a cluster.  The E: drive has all the shared files and folders as prescribed in the install instructions for installing on a cluster.  The bin and conf folders and files are on a 😧 drive on both cluster nodes.  When I go to add a script via operations manager, it puts it on the shared directory, not the install directory itself.  Is there some way to point it to the proper directory or config OnCommand to look at the shared drive / directories for scripts?

Kenn

dlynch

Can you verify that the dfm executables are in e:/DFM/bin and libraries are in e:/DFM/conf?

REGIS_GARRUCHET

Ok, understood.

@ dlynch, thank you for the explanation.

I will have to check next time I go to this customer because I think it is in the right directory then.
