I'm trying to use the NMSDK to calc CIFS latency.
As per the Performance Management Design Guide I'm calculating
CIFS Latency as:
(cifs_latency at time2 - cifs_latency at time1)
(cifs_latency_base at time2 - cifs_latency_base at time1)
But when I test against a filer that is totally idle I get the same values
at times 1 and 2 even when I wait 5 seconds between calls. For
example, in Java I do:
t1 = getPerfCounters("cifs","cifs_latency,cifs_latency_base");
Thread.sleep(5 * Timer.ONE_SECOND);
t2 = getPerfCounters("cifs","cifs_latency,cifs_latency_base");
Note: getPerfCounters() is just a helper method that uses the
NaElements to get Counters named
Is there another way to get the last known latency values?
