Seeing if aggregate has 'hot disks' and needs reallocating


HI All


Whats the best way to see if an aggregate has 'hot disks'. When an aggr has been grown but not reallocated, that sort of thing.


Whats the best way to see these on a per aggr level on 7 mode?






Nick -


There's the advanced priv mode 'statit' command.

You won't find a man page for it on the support site.


'statit -b' to begin statistics collection.

Let it run for a few minutes.

'statit -e' to end and get the output.


There's a section of the output report on disk statistics.

Disks are listed by raid groups and aggrs.

Look at the ut% collumn to find hot spindles.

I hope this response has been helpful to you.
