I have another question regarding dfm, you might know the answer;
I am looking to find a list of source volumes which does not have snapmirror relationship (backup), do you know if I can generate such report or run a query on the dfm?

Its possible with the help of NMSDK and some scripting.
Can you give me your definition of what is an unprotected volume ?
What kind of relationships do you typically create ? Qtree SnapMirror of Volume Snapmirror ?

We usually create a volume snapmirror and sometimes cascading another replication to a DR site.
When I see the volume in the DFM , there is a section called protection, see screen shot.
I want to have report for all volumes which does not have any snapmirror configured and identify them as 'at risk' (no backup).
I am looking for a way to monitor my backup policy.
do you have any ideas? (I'm sure you have )

So all you do is VSM and no QSM or SV right ? We already have a script that generates this report using SDK let me see if we can bundle it as Script Plugin.
Pls ping me back in a week or two regarding the same.

The best place for you to get started and download SDK will be https://communities.netapp.com/community/interfaces_and_tools/developer.
Using SDK is simple, we have a tool called ZEDI which is a GUI tool to automatically generate code, that could help you a lot since you are not a developer.
Let me know if you need any help with getting started.

May I know what kind of protection relationships are being used in your environment? (Volume SnapMirror/ Qtree Snapmirror/ Snapvault)
I am working on a Perl/ NMSDK script, to list unprotected volumes in your environment.

Please find attached the script archive: dfpmUnprotected.zip.
Procedure to use the script:
The csv file includes the list of unprotected volumes (excluding snapmirror secondary).
Could you please execute the script and let me know if it works for you?
