Performance/Volume or Performance/FlexGroup Explorer page


This page provides detailed performance information for a volume in a cluster. The title of this page depends on whether you are viewing a FlexVol volume or a FlexGroup volume.

The Volume or FlexGroup Explorer page enables you to track and compare volume performance during a specific time period, which helps you to troubleshoot and fine-tune your volume performance.


Root volumes are not displayed on this page.

Using the View and Compare functionality:

  • For FlexVol volumes, you can compare the performance of this volume with:

    • other volumes on the same aggregate

    • other volumes that are in the same QoS policy group

    • the aggregate on which this volume resides

    • the SVM on which this volume resides

    • the LUNs that are on this volume

  • For FlexGroup volumes, you can compare the performance of this FlexGroup with:

    • the aggregates on which the FlexGroup resides

    • the SVM on which the FlexGroup resides

    • the constituent volumes of the FlexGroup

The statistics in the charts are updated after each collection period; which by default is every 5 minutes. The View statistics in selector provides an option to show statistics averaged over the previous hour. This functionality enables you to view the latency chart in support of the NetApp "Performance Guarantee" program.

The Performance/Volume Explorer or Performance/FlexGroup Explorer page enables you to:

  • View threshold-related issues and their details

  • Track and compare volume performance data

  • Investigate and troubleshoot threshold-related issues

  • Investigate and troubleshoot performance issues

  • Launch System Manager to make a configuration change to the volume

    The Configure Volume button is available if you are logged in to Unified Manager with the Administrator or Storage Administrator role, and when using ONTAP 9.5 or greater.


For data protection (DP) volumes, only counter values for user-generated traffic are displayed.
