show ssdCache [ssdCacheName] [ssdCacheStatistics] 


Parameter Description
ssdCache The name of the SSD cache for which you want to retrieve information. Enclose the SSD cache name in square brackets ([ ]). If the SSD cache name has special characters or numbers, you must enclose the SSD cache name in double quotation marks (" ") inside square brackets.
ssdCacheStatistics An optional parameter to the show ssdCache command that indicates you want to retrieve cache statistics.

Each controller stores SSD cache metadata for the volumes that it owns. Therefore, the SSD cache statistics are maintained and displayed per controller. Valid controller identifiers are a, b, or both, where a is the controller in slot A , b is the controller in slot B, and both is both controllers. Enclose the controller identifier in square brackets ([ ]). If you do not specify a controller, the default value is both.


The file path and the file name to which you want to save the SSD cache statistics. Additional statistics are available when you save the statistics to a file.

Enclose the file name in double quotation marks (" "). For example:

file="C:\Program Files\CLI\logs\ssdcachestats.csv".

You can use any file name but you must use the .csv extension.
