SAN iops from vFoglight

Jump to solution

Can vFoglight provide information on the current iops and historical iops of the SAN connected to the hosts using it? In this case the only systems using the SAN are hosts monitored by vFoglight so all SAN activity is from these hosts alone. Perhaps there is a canned report which can produce this info?

Open right sidebar - Drag & Drop Datastores to your custom dashboard - Select a view - Make sure Show by role is unchecked, select v-Datastore Top-Throughput-Table - Next - Filter out any unwanted datastores - Finish

Remember the numbers you see are average numbers over the timeperiod you have choosen. You can change timeline and move it as well.

This can be done with custom dashboard or report:

You can select any time range you like for above. Is that what you are looking for?

In above example I selected total throughput, IOPS and Latency but of course you can show read, write and total if you like..

Additionally vBundle-1 cartridge provides views and Reports for IOPS information at DataStore & VM levels. All the details about vBundle-1 cartridge can be found at http://communities.quest.com/docs/DOC-4689 and the .pdf files attached there.

Thanks I can see the picture now. Exactly which metrics did you put on the chart - when I collect these metric I'm seeing IOPS of >70K which is over 5 times more than the SAN we're using can generate.

All these views appear to be fixed on the top 5 - is there a way to get the same data for a single cluster or data center without any limit on the number of datastores being displayed?

Click on Datastore Count (default is 5 but you can change to any number).
