Why dont we have NetApp CPU Busy Percentage performance metrics in SRM(Orion) ? This is present in SRM (Profiler) for 7-mode devices, but was upset not to see that in SRM (Orion) where we added C-mode devices. Couple of our devices are working hard and we need to monitor its CPU utilization and Total IOPS which we are not able to do....
In the SRM Orion v6.0 there is really nothing like that, thank you for this feedback, we will discuss this internally.
Thank you for pointing this out!
I would like to second this. In large Netapp deployments you will run out of CPU power before you run out of anything else. Many times high Latency is caused by the controllers being too overloaded on CPU (higher than 90%). For Netapp CPU is critical.
Definately second this as a feature. We are currently in the middle of a PoC which includes SRM. CPU stats on a NetApp filer are one of the key indicators of potential issues in conjunction with IOPS and latency and therefore would be really useful.
You could always create a custom SNMP poller. This OID should give you the CPU busy % across the cluster.
