Performance monitoring using the CLI
The CLI supports current load monitoring, long term load monitoring, object base monitoring, and troubleshooting monitoring. The CLI collects and displays performance statistics using:
monitors - Gather the specified statistic from the specified target at the specified interval.
monitor sinks - Direct the output to the desired destination. Monitor sinks include the console, a file, or a combination of the two.
Use two pre-defined perpetual monitors for each director to collect information to diagnose common problems.
Use the CLI to create a toolbox of custom monitors to operate under varying conditions including debugging, capacity planning, and workload characterization. For example:
Dell EMC Administration Guide for metro node describes the procedure for monitoring metro node performance using the CLI.
