From Export Tool 2, access the storage system and output the performance data, specifying an output directory of the CSV file, a time range, and a performance metrics group.

For details about the performance metrics and the performance metrics group names, see Generating the performance information file.

The user must have Storage Administrator (Performance Monitor) role assigned.

  1. On the computer where Export Tool 2 is installed, open the Windows command prompt or the Linux terminal.
  2. Navigate to the Export Tool 2 installation directory.
  3. Verify the collection time of the performance data accumulated in the storage system.

    Use the show range command to specify the IP address of the management port of the storage system in the -ip parameter.

    Specify the user account and password in the -login parameter.

    In Windows:

    runWin.bat show range –ip 192.168.0.16 -login export_user tropxe00

    In Linux:

    runUnix.sh show range –ip 192.168.0.16 -login export_user tropxe00

    Output Example:

    2017/03/31 12:20:30
    2017/03/31 12:30:30
    :
    2017/04/01 12:10:30
  4. Output the performance data to a file by using the export data command.

    Specify the output directory path in the -outpath parameter. When omitted, the performance data is output under the installed directory (monitor2\out).

    Specify a time range for the performance data that you want to output in the -range parameter. When omitted, the performance data accumulated in the storage system for the entire period is output.

    Specify a performance metrics group name that you want to output in the -group parameter. When omitted, all groups are output.

    Specify the option in the -option parameter.
    • To compress the performance information in zip format, enter compress. For no compression, enter nocompress. When omitted, the option is set to compress.
    • If a file or folder with the same name exists in the output directory of the file, enter ask to prompt whether to delete the file or folder. To delete the file or folder, enter clear. When omitted, the option is set to clear.
    • To list the resource ID in a row for exported data, enter resourceid_on_row. This means that each record contains performance information for each collection time and resource. To list the resource ID by column, enter resourceid_on_column. This means that each record contains performance information for multiple resources collected at the same time.

      You can specify this option for VSP E series with a DKCMAIN microcode version of 93-06-21 or later.

    For additional information, see the export data command.

    In Windows:

    runWin.bat export data –ip 192.168.0.16 -login export_user tropxe00
     –outpath c:\\exportlog -range  201704010020:201704011210
     –group MP ParityGroup LDEV LU Port –option noncompress clear resourceid_on_row

    In Linux:

    runUnix.sh export data –ip 192.168.0.16 -login export_user tropxe00
     –outpath c:\\exportlog -range  201704010020:201704011210
     –group MP ParityGroup LDEV LU Port –option noncompress clear resourceid_on_row

    Output Example:

    +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
    ===================================>                 70.0%

    The progress state and the progress rate are displayed.

    When the performance data output is complete, 100.0% is displayed for the progress rate.

  5. Close the Windows command prompt or the Linux terminal.
