Get-NaEfficiency missing savings for SM destination

mg
NetApp

Hello,

  

I've written a script to collect data from several Filers and put them in an Excel sheet. For each Filer, I get the list of the aggregates, then run "get-naefficiency" on each aggregate. Using "-recurse" option, I also collect data from aggregate's volumes.

What I've found out is that for some reasons, I don't get any storage efficiency savings (dedupe/compression) for SnapMirror volumes:

$myfiler = SM destination

$myfiler2 = SM source

  

$aggr_eff = Get-NaEfficiency -Aggregate aggr_sn12_01 -Recurse -Controller $myfiler

$volumes = $aggr_eff | %{$_.Children.Values} | Where {$_.Name -Match "ci1epso01_01"}

$volumes.Returns =>

Dedupe      : 0

Compression : 0

Snapshot    : 353596505292

Cloning     : 0

Total       : 353596505292

Get-NaVol $volumes.Name -Controller $myfiler | fl * | Out-String

RaidStatus                                 : raid_dp,snapmirrored,read-only,sis

$aggr_eff2 = Get-NaEfficiency -Aggregate aggr_adf12_01 -Recurse -Controller $myfiler2

$volumes2 = $aggr_eff2 | %{$_.Children.Values} | Where {$_.Name -Match "ci1epso01_01"}

$volumes2.Returns =>

Dedupe      : 68420845568

Compression : 0

Snapshot    : 353548572672

Cloning     : 0

Total       : 421969418240

Get-NaVol $volumes2.Name -Controller $myfiler2 | fl * | Out-String

RaidStatus                                 : raid_dp,sis

Any idea where problem could come from?

Thanking you in advance,

Kind regards,

Michel

I too have seen shortcomings of get-naefficiency as well as get-ncefficiency.

I get these two errors intermittently with the 7 mode commandlet.  The volumes are not offline though they are snapmirror destinations.

writeErrorStream : True

And with an unitialized snapmirror destination on the cluster mode commandlet get this every time.   It exits the commandlet before getting info from the remaining volumes:

Attempted to divide by zero.
