SPCollect scheduled run

Jump to solution
Hi,

Does anyone know if it is possible to schedule SPCollect run instead of manual run?

If it can be scheduled, how one can scheduled it to run after a monitored event is generated or rather is it possible to achieve?

Thanks in advance

The weekly SPcollect is set to run one week after the last SPcollect finishes. If left alone, the time for this will creep forward a couple hours each week. If someone manually kicks off an SPcollect halfway through its weekly cycle, the one-week clock is reset and the next collect will be run within seven days.

This autorun feature can be disabled or enabled with the naviseccli -h <SP_IP_address> -user <username> -password <password> spcollect -set <-auto ON| OFF> command.

you can do all that with navicli, it's just a matter of scripting it and getting the latest archive.

# Open a command prompt on the Management Station.

# Type cd c:\program files\emc\navisphere cli

# Type naviseccli -h <SP_IP_address> spcollect  -  This starts the SPcollect script.

# Type navicli -h <SP_IP_address> managefiles -list This will list the files created by SPcollect.

# Type navicli -h <SP_IP_address> managefiles -retrieve This will display the files that can be moved
from the SP to the Management Station.

# Example:

Thanks for the information. You are right in saying scripting the steps and schedule it from the attached host.

I was looking for a possibility to schedule the SPCollect run from within FLARE so that whenever there is any significant ( warning/critical etc ) event happens, the SPCollect would run and maybe sent out as a part of Call-home?

i think the only time the box calls home is for critical events. In my experience, EMC support personal will dial-in/ESRS into management station and collect SPcollects themselves. Have you had different experience ?

No different experience. But I thought if that is something feasible.
I was wondering if anything can be done in monitor template to make it happen.

In the latest versions on flare, starting around release 24, spcollects will automatically run every week. I believe it keeps about 2 months of logs

That's good to know. Thank Glen!

I guess the spcollect run is pre-defined or is it possible to change the schedule?

Do you know if release 24 or later can send out the spcollect either automatically or as a part of critical events monitoring?

I am trying to find the release notes of 24 and later.
