Way to get REST or SymCLI commands used to build Unisphere screens?

Hello,

I am assuming that the management screens in Unisphere are built on top of either SymCLI commands or REST API calls. Is there any type of command/request log, or other way that I can find out how to collect information that is being displayed in the GUI, but that I dont know how to get CLI?

For example, this screen shows the breakdown of a LUN per FAST pool:

I dont know of any SymCLI command or REST call to get this data.

Thanks,

Tanner

Here is the Solutions Enabler command to query the information you show in your screenshot:

symcfg -sid XXXX list -tdev -dev YYYY -gb -detail

I would suggest the documents below for specific examples:

Solutions Enabler CLI 8.3.0 CLI Reference Guide

Unisphere for VMAX 8.3.0 REST API Concepts and Programmer's Guide

Hi Tanner,

for a good introduction to RESTAPI please see this blog on how to setup the client and get going with it

any questions please let us know.

Re: Way to get REST or SymCLI commands used to build Unisphere screens?

Thank you both for the help. I was hoping there was some type of log that could show me exactly what calls were being made to build the Unisphere GUI, but these docs will have to do.

EDIT:  I was able to find the following command from this thread:

symaudit -sid XX list -text -last_n 25


It doesn't show the query commands used to collect information, but it does log actions done in the GUI like creating LUN, making SRDF changes, etc...


Thanks,

Tanner
