Perf Adv stats from the DFM cli?


Ok, it's Operations Manager now but the question doesn't change.

Is there a way to get all the stats that I see under PA directly from the OM cli or through the SDK?  PA, as I understand it, simply talks to OM for all the data it presents, which means all that data is in OM somewhere.  But I've not found any reference to access this data in any of the OM documentation.

Specifically I'm looking for CIFS and NFS operations; read, write, and other.  I ask about all PA stats though because this is just the first set of data I'm looking for.  I will be trying to get more later.




Hello Jeff,

If PA is enabled to collect the data from the storage systems then you can use the cli "dfm perf data retrieve" to see the data in CLI.

dfm perf data retrieve { [ -o object-name-or-id ... ] [ -C perf-counter ... ]
[ -V view-name ] }
[ -d duration ] [ -b start-time ] [ -e end-time ]
[ -M month ... ] [ -D weekday ... ] [ -T time-range ... ]
[ -m statistical-method [ -P percentile-value ]
[ -S data-advance-method ] ]
[ -s sample-rate ] [ -x output-format ] [ -R ]
# dfm perf data retrieve -o f3050-184-39  -C system:cifs_ops -b "2010-11-19 12:45:42" -e "2010-11-19 12:49:42"
