Changing Command Line Display From KB to GB

I'm pretty sure I saw this years ago but I've forgotten the command. How do you change the display results of a command so data is listed in GB or TB instead of KB? (The specific command I'm interested in at the moment is volume efficiency stat).

Thank you @SpindleNinja ! I knew this was an easy one, just wasn't looking in the right place.

Well ... this is the right answer, but I technically spoke too soon. The command doesn't affect the output of the specific command I'm using, volume efficiency stat.

huh.. that is weird.   I tested a 9.12.1 sim -

does work for other vol eff commands though - 

cluster1::*> vol efficiency show -volume TESTVOL -fields Logical-data-size
vserver       volume  logical-data-size

svm1_cluster1 TESTVOL 0PB

 

 

vol show shows savings -

vserver     volume dedupe-space-saved dedupe-space-saved-percent compression-space-saved compression-space-saved-percent

Let me ask some folks if there's a reason why. 

 

but what are you trying to see though? just volume space savings?

@SpindleNinja , thanks for checking. Some of the commands you showed give me essentially what I'm looking for. I've been looking for a couple of years for a way to get the exact details we used to get in the System Manager GUI, which I always found helpful. It's been extremely frustrating to not have that since 9.8. I think I've finally hit on a combination of the following giving most of the details we used to see. Thanks for the help.

volume efficiency show -volume <volume> -fields last-op-state,last-op-begin,last-op-end,last-op-size
volume show -volume <volume> -fields size,sis-space-saved,sis-space-saved-percent

@John_Kolacz thanks for the tip! See my note to SpindleNinja about this not working with one command, but it does seem to work with the others.

I didn't see the other reply, but in answer to your question as to why it doesn't work with vol eff stat, my first thought is that the devs who write the commands didn't update that one and in the code it is hard coded to units.  I would hazard a guess that the preferred command is volume efficiency show -fields, while volume efficiency statistics is an older command that still works but wasn't updated by the devs.   It personally drives me crazy that command syntax varies depending on which group of devs wrote the command.

Yeah that makes sense @John_Kolacz , you're probably right. Agreed about the inconsistency, it creates some confusion such as in this discussion. Even moreso, I really wish they would fix the GUI and make it as good as it used to be pre-9.7 but the changes so far have been just trickling in with each version. We are on 9.11.1 at the moment and it is slightly improved but still missing key features. I actually like the look/feel and the new features which are useful, but man they stripped out some of the most critical functionality.
