REST API 6 month data collection

I am trying to collect IOPS for each storage group on VMAX40k. I tested few API call through REST Client and there seem to be a inbuilt limitation of 7 days. I tried all sorts of time periods ranging from 6 months, 3 months, 30 days and 7 days. No matter which time period i choose, the maximum rang of data i get is for last 7 days i.e roughly 2000 data points (5 min avgs). Is it possible to get all historical data ? Has anyone found a solution to this ? The documentation doesn't seem to address this limitation. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Im on Unisphere 8.4.0.15 I tried on both VMAX 40k and All FLASH arrays with no luck.

Re: REST API 6 month data collection

Hi Ayrton,

the maximum number you can go back is 15 days. So I was looking at this through our REST tool and I went and grabbed the keys for an SG

storageGroupId": "Lab_GK",

"firstAvailableDate": 1530709800000

"lastAvailableDate": 1532007900000

if i put the first available date into https://www.epochconverter.com/ I get back a stamp of 15 days ago of Wednesday, July 4, 2018 1:10:00 PM


I then and ran a post to get the metrics back and this worked fine for me.

Let me know how it goes.

Regards

Fin.
