What do you do to find the top file share users in a CIFS environment with CDOT?


Hi there, I'm making this thread to get some discussion going among folks for how they go about finding users who are doing busy workloads on their NetApp CIFS shares on CDOT. 


One of the biggest losses of CDOT is the "cifs top" command. You no longer have an easy way to find out who's beating up your filers.


So how do you deal with this in your environment? Do you tie into NetApp's APIs somehow? Did you get new stats with version 8.3 that let you do what you need now? Did you find another tool to figure out who's doing the most traffic to your filers? 





Please refer the KB below to collect per client stats for CIFS in clustered Data ONTAP.
