how to view FAST VP movement history ?

i am using fast vp for "move only"  and no DRV is configured as swapping is not required , and viewing of device information in SG shows that it is distributed betwwn the two configured pools and FAST is working properly , but I need to view some logs for the movement , I have tried :

#symfast -sid xxx list -history

and it is giving "no data movement"

#symoptmz -sid xxx read -log_type RUNTIME -start xxxxxxxx

also not showing any movement

so I need to know how to get any history for FAST VP chunks movement history

Thanks,

The history counters you have are the ingress and egress counters in the pool.

You can also get per LUN how much capacity is in each tier.  You could save that off every so many hours.

Hi Nafez,

#symfast -sid xxx list -history does not work for FAST VP. best way to monitor the FAST VP is through SPA. Doing it from CMD line is not straight forward.

The movement history is only for full volume FAST (thick)

Hi , it is true according to emc283385 that the movement history is only for full volume FAST (thick) , but the thing it is confusing for the customer to see "No Data Movement History" when using "symfast -sid XXX list -history" , so what I've been looking is a way to find an entry in FAST or Optimizer or SE logs (events) that indicate chunk movement in FAST VP , and till now ..no luck

Many thanks,

I think it would be better for the CLI to report that it isn't supported on FAST VP.

Is there any way to check that on the SMC/SPA

Re: how to view FAST VP movement history ?

HI Nafez,

Starting with 5875 Q2 release, FAST and FAST VP (-vp) are seggregated. So all commands for FAST v1 uses "symfast" where as commands for fast vp uses "symfast -vp" and there is no history option available in FAST VP (symfast -vp).
