Data ONTAP Discussions

pending requests

we recently installed a clustered system and we're using cacti to graph traffic and nfs ops via a perl script.

The problem is that the script suddenly stopped working.
When I try the query using zedi I get the same error :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<netapp  xmlns="" version="1.21">















<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' ?>

<netapp version='1.21' xmlns=''>


    <!-- Output of perf-object-get-instances [Execution Time: 125 ms] -->

    <results errno='13001' status='failed' reason='System busy: 10 requests on table "perf_object_get_instances" have been pending for 70767 seconds.'/>



Is there a way to make the API respond again ?


Re: pending requests

Not an answer but wanted to add I've seen the same behavior after running a perfstat.

Error: show failed: System busy: 10 requests on table "perf_object_list_info" have been pending for 3436 seconds

NetApp Release 8.2.1RC1D2 Cluster-Mode

It appears the perfstat did not exit cleanly and/or something is wedged. Should be interesting to see how to clear

this up. Other NetApp tools such as Balance have stopped collecting as well.
