Data Infrastructure Management Software Discussions
One of my customer is running a MetroCluster, and he's having some questions, which I haven't find answers yet.
- Is it possible to get the history of snapshots with their sizes for a specific volume or aggregate?
- Can we setup an alarm different than the threshold for a specific volume?
Thank you in advance,

Pls find my responses inline.
Did you try the snapshot reports ? Can you give me some example of what you are looking for ? So that I can tell you if that is possible with OCUM or not.
By alarm you mean alarm for the snapshot usaage ? If so yes we already have one.
[root@vmlnx ~]# dfm options list | grep -i volsnap
volSnapshotTooOldThreshold 52 weeks
[root@vmlnx ~]# dfm eventtype list | grep -i df.snapshot.kbytes
snapshot-full Warning df.snapshot.kbytes
snapshot-space-ok Normal df.snapshot.kbytes
[root@vmlnx ~]# dfm eventtype list | grep -i old-snap
snapshots:not-too-old Normal old-snaps
snapshots:too-old Warning old-snaps

I haven't try the snapshot reports, I'm going to have a look on this.
Regarding the alarms, I'm looking for space usage specific for volumes.
Because the percentage is not always valuable for volumes or aggregate for different sizes (from GB to TB).
Yup pretty much, but it was warm when I landed and became hot when I was about to leave. I did try Fondue and liked it.
BTW though you can set different percentage value for each volumes snapshot usage, but unfortunately its still percentage.
Also the percentage is of the SnapReserve and not the full volume capacity.
