Show metatdata usage via CLI

Jump to solution

Hello,

does anyone know a way to display the metadata usage (as a %) via command line? We have scripts collecting data from Avamar systems and we want to be able to pull this information.

I have a couple of Av/DD setups, where lots of directories and very small files are backed up to DD. This uses more metadata on the Avamar, so the metadata usage is higher that normal GSAN. This would be common for AVE/DD setups where all data is backed up to DD and nothing (except metadata) on Avamar itself.

In MCGUI it displays the higher percentage (between metadata and server utilization), and can see both if I click on it. (see pic below). But mccli server show-prop only shows the server utilization. Is there any command to display the metadata utilization percentage?

Thanks and regards,

Stephen

Great, thanks for that. The output looks like this:

admin@avamar:~/>: mcserver.sh --status | grep -i metadataUtilization
metadataUtilization (larger of (nstripes/totalStripesPermitted) or (stripeReserved/(nodeSizeAfterDiskReadOnly * stripeUtilizationCapacityFactor)) * 100): 3.24

(Data has grown since the screenshot, the MCGUI also shows 3.2% Utilization)
