ONTAP Recipes: Capture First Failure Data using NetApp AutoSupport On Demand Performance Archive


Did you know that...


You can capture first failure data using NetApp AutoSupport On Demand performance archive?


You can send up to six hours of performance archive data using a single command. It’s that easy! To send performance archives for a duration of greater than six hours, you can issue back-to-back commands. You also have the flexibility to send performance archives that are collected before, during, and after the issue being troubleshooted has occurred.


Run the following CLI command to send a performance archive as well as a message and corresponding case number. In this example, we collected the archive files from each node in the cluster starting on 12/03/2017 at 8:00 a.m. for a duration of six hours.


cluster1::> system node autosupport invoke-performance-archive -node * -start-date 12/03/2017 8:00:00 -duration 6h -message "Some perf date for 12/03" -case-number 2006123456


Note: For further analysis, contact NetApp support before or after you upload the performance archives.
