  • Translate the FileID into a Directory name

Using C-Mode 9.x

You can get the file count for a particular volume by running the "volume show <volume> -fields files" command from the ONTAP CLI.

Hi

 

The ID in the EMS message can be translated with "volume show-inode -volume <vol name> -inode <number>" command.

 

i'm not aware of NetApp way to show number of files. and the exact number dosen't matter in relation to this error. it's the size of the index that do (also something i'm not sure how to get).

 

You can get prey fast file count on a folder with the NetApp migration tool (XCP).

volume file show-inode -vserver <svm name>  -volume <volumename> -inode-number <file id number>

will tell you which file/path is causing the maxdirsize warning.
