Viewing SVM IOPS traffic by protocol

You can view detailed IOPS information for an SVM by using the Performance/SVM Explorer page. The basic IOPS counter chart shows total IOPS usage on the SVM, and the IOPS (Advanced) counter chart is useful for determining the impact of read, write, and other IOPS on the SVM.

About this task

Additionally, when the Advanced chart is displayed in Zoom View, it shows a detailed comparison of the IOPS traffic for each protocol (CIFS, NFS, FCP, or iSCSI) that is being used on the SVM.


  1. In the Performance/SVM Explorer page for your selected SVM, select IOPS (Advanced) in the Choose Charts drop-down menu in the right-hand chart area.
    The IOPS (Advanced) chart is added to the chart area.
  2. In the IOPS (Advanced) chart, select Zoom View > Open in New Window.
    The IOPS advanced protocol comparative chart and the advanced IOPS read and write count chart are displayed. You can restrict the comparison by deselecting or selecting the that is associated with a counter.
  3. To view the specific values, move your cursor into the chart area of either chart to see the popup window.
