Active IQ UM - API and Powershell



We are currently working on writing a simple integration using the Active IQ Unified Manager API and Powershell for extracting volume specific attributes. We have found most of the information using simple queries as follows:

$NetAppVolumeRecordsAll = Invoke-RestMethod -Method Get -UseBasicParsing -Uri "https://<NETAPP IP>/api/datacenter/storage/volumes?order_by=name&max_records=100000" -Headers $authheader
$NetAppVolumeRecord = $NetAppVolumeRecordsAll.records | Where-Object name -eq "<VOLUME NAME>"
$NetAppGatewayVolumeRecords = Invoke-RestMethod -Method Get -UseBasicParsing -Uri "https:// <NETAPP IP>/api/v2/gateways/ $($NetAppVolumeRecord.cluster.uuid)/storage/volumes?name=$($**&return_records=true&return_timeout=15" -Headers $authheader


We are trying to replicate the same behavior as our current reporting code, which is based on an imported BIRT report built in Eclipse a while back:

select as Cluster, as SVM, as Volume, 
volume.size/POW(1024,3) as size_gb, 
volume.sizeUsed/POW(1024,3) as used_gb, 
(volume.deduplicationSpaceSaved+compressionSpaceSaved)/POW(1024,3) as saved_gb, 
volume.sizeUsedBySnapshots/POW(1024,3) as snapshot_gb,
(volume.sizeUsed+volume.deduplicationSpaceSaved+compressionSpaceSaved+sizeUsedBySnapshots)/POW(1024,3) as total_gb,
volume.isEncrypt as Encrypted, volume.qosPolicyGroupId as QoS

from cluster
join vserver
          on vserver.clusterId = cluster.objid
join volume
          on volume.vserverId = vserver.objid
            AND NOT LIKE 'vol0'
            AND (volume.junctionPath != '/' OR volume.junctionPath IS NULL)
ORDER BY SVM, Volume asc;


But we have a hard time working out the correct way to query for the volume.deduplicationSpaceSaved and compressionSpaceSaved attributes. We have so far been unable to find these using the API documentation and trial and error, could you please help us with pointer to the correct endpoint or method for also requesting information for these attributes for a given volume?


Best regards

Re: Active IQ UM - API and Powershell

Thank you very much.


Allthough I can only see:

[String]$uri += $("&space.efficiency.savings=" + ($SavingsGB * (1024 * 1024 * 1024)))
[Bool]$query = $True


Wich only os for global space saving (datacenter/storage/aggregates)

Nothing on volume level.
