Hi Splunkers,
Is it possible to calculate usable capacity or used capacity of filer with Splunk NetApp app.
Does temperature of NetApp controller available through Splunk NetApp?

Thank You in Advance.
Regards,
Harshal

In addition to using ssh or rsh to access the ambient temperature of the filer, you can access the value via snmp. Although that functionality is not currently in the NetApp app, you may want to consider using the Splunk SNMP Modular Input app to access it.

This OID refers to current temp: 1.3.6.1.4.1.789.1.21.1.2.1.25

There are others that will give you capacity.

you can use the environment status command in NetApp to give you a temperature reading - although you get ALL the environment variables along with that.....

Would love to have this capability.

Am definitely a fan of thinking of Splunk as a platform, not a point solution, and the SNMP suggestion fits right in to that theme! I have played a little bit with the SNMP modinput so far and am planning to use it in another storage-related project of mine. Use what works.

And don't be surprised if the next version of the NetApp app contains volume utilization. 🙂

Hi Harshal,

The capacity information is not available at this time, though it's often accessible via client OS (for instance, in the VMware App's data store entity view). I don't believe we can get to temperature either, but if you know how to access it in OnTAP we might be able to help.

Jack, totally doable. I'm in the API (using Zedi zexplore.jar) and if we query the API method "volume-list-info", it returns volume objects with all sorts of utilization properties.

In other words, it's not in the perf class.
