Querying device performance from REST api

Jump to solution

Hello

I've been trying to figure out a way to get performance metrics (IOPS, Read RT, Write RT, etc) for individual volumes (devs). Pulling this through the gui is pretty painful, but I can't seem to find it a way to do it through the api either.

I'm using the PyU4V library by Paul Martin (great btw) and also looking at the RESTclient to navigate through the objects. The particular array I'm working with is a VMAX3 running 8.4.0.4, but we have quite a few other VMAXes running different code levels too.

Any help on this is greatly appreciated!!!

Yes unfortunately we do not expose device level metrics through REST

i don't believe individual device stats are exposed via REST.

Indeed Dynamox! to be fair I have got the request from a number of customers, and we are looking at its feasibility at present but we can't commit to it going ahead yet without further testing, if that changes I will let you know.

Any luck on the testing yet?  My company would like to use the RestAPI rather than SMIS to pull data. We are really wanting on this to happen.

Hi,

We have identified this as a potential gap and it is on the roadmap (subject to change) to be available in a future release which is provisionally targeted for the 2H 2019.

Regards

Fin.
