volume snapshot show

Display a list of snapshots

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The volume snapshot show command displays information about Snapshot copies. The command output depends on the parameters specified with the command. If no parameters are specified, the command displays a table with the following information about all the available Snapshot copies:
  • Vserver name
  • Volume name
  • Snapshot copy name
  • State
  • Size
  • Percentage of total blocks in the parent volume
  • Percentage of used blocks in the parent volume
To display a detailed list view with additional information, run the command and select the -instance view. In addition to the above mentioned information about the Snapshot copies, the detailed list view provides the following additional information:
  • Creation time
  • Snapshot busy
  • List of the Snapshot copy's owners
  • Comment associated with the Snapshot copy
  • SnapMirror Label associated with the Snapshot copy
  • 7-Mode Snapshot
  • Constituent Snapshot
  • Expiry Time
  • SnapLock Expiry Time
At the advanced or higher privilege level the detailed view provides the following additional information:
  • Snapshot copy's Dataset ID
  • Snapshot copy's master Dataset ID
  • Number of consistency points in the Snapshot copy
  • Internal status of the Snapshot copy
  • File system version
  • File system block format
  • Physical Snap ID
  • Logical Snap ID
  • Database record owner
  • Snapshot tags
  • Instance UUID
  • Version UUID
  • Node
  • AFS used size
  • Compression savings size
  • Deduplication savings size
  • Vbn0 savings size
  • Performance metadata size
  • Status of FlexGroup Qtree support in the Snapshot copy
Note: For Snapshot copies whose parent volume is a FlexGroup, some information is not available and empty values will be displayed. This information includes:
  • State
  • Size
  • Percentage of total blocks in the parent volume
  • Percentage of used blocks in the parent volume
All information is available for Snapshot copies whose parent volume is a FlexGroup Constituent.

At the admin and advanced privilege level, Snapshot copies whose parent volume is a FlexGroup Constituent are not displayed by default. To display these, run the commmand and set the is-constituent to true. At the diagnostic or higher privilege level, all Snapshot copies are displayed by default.

The list view is automatically enabled if a single Snapshot copy is specified by using the -vserver, -volume and -snapshot options together.
A preformatted query for displaying the time-related information is available by specifying the -time format specifier. This displays a table that contains the following fields for all the available Snapshot copies:
  • Vserver name
  • Volume name
  • Snapshot copy name
  • Creation time

By using the -fields option you can choose to print only the certain fields in the output. This presents the selected fields in a table view. This is ideal when you want additional information to be different from the information that is provided by the default table view, but would like it in a format which is visually easy to compare.

You can specify additional parameters to display the information that matches only those parameters. For example, to display information only about Snapshot copies of the load-sharing volumes, run the command with the -volume-type LS parameter. If you specify multiple filtering parameters, only those Snapshot copies that match all the specified parameters are displayed.
