Storage Efficiency Dashboard

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?

Re: Storage Efficiency Dashboard

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...

Have a chat with this guy as he has some cool NDA toys you may want to play with, to resolve the issue.

Re: Storage Efficiency Dashboard

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.

Re: Storage Efficiency Dashboard

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?

Re: Storage Efficiency Dashboard

Did you uninstall the 1.2 version?

What OS?

Re: Storage Efficiency Dashboard

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

Re: Storage Efficiency Dashboard

Hi Madden, If it makes you feel better Ive just tried installing the plugin and i get the same error. Its a fresh install with no legacy problems on a windows 2008r2 box.

Re: Storage Efficiency Dashboard

Hi,

I got the same error with version 1.3

Re: Storage Efficiency Dashboard

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?

Re: Storage Efficiency Dashboard

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...

Re: Storage Efficiency Dashboard

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...

Re: Storage Efficiency Dashboard

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.
