Profiling a NetApp filer
It’s widely known that NetApp has a fair share of the storage/filer market and it only makes sense that Live Optics supports the ability to profile this technology.
There are two options to gather data from NetApp; configuration and performance.
It will do so by establishing an SSH connection to the CLI on the NetApp array and running CLI commands to collect the data. The data will then be seamlessly transmitted back to the Live Optics Viewer Portal for analysis and display.
The SSH commands will grab data through various files and for those of you that are curious, here are some of the sample commands that would be issued. The entire process will take about 1 min or less from start to finish for configuration.
If you elect to gather performance, then the total duration will be what you select.
Command list: df, df –S, cluster image show, system node show, volume show, disk show, lun show, node external-cache show, system feature-usage show-summary, cf partner, sysconfig –a, aggr show space, vol status -r
Note: Live Optics currently does not support versions 8.0-8.2. However, this is being addressed in a subsequent release.
Here are some screen shots from the collector and viewer!
