Network Interface performance fields

Contributors

The following fields are available in the Performance: All Network Interfaces view and can be used in custom views and in reports.

  • Status

    A healthy object with no active events displays a green check mark icon (Icon for event severity – normal). If the object has an active event, the event indicator icon identifies the event severity: critical events are red (Icon for event severity – critical), error events are orange (Icon for event severity – error), and warning events are yellow (Icon for event severity – warning).

  • Network Interface

    You can click the network interface (LIF) name to navigate to the performance details page of that LIF.

  • Type

    The interface type: Network (iSCSI, NFS, CIFS), FCP, or NVMf FC.

  • Latency

    The average response time for all I/O requests, expressed in milliseconds per operation. Latency is not applicable to NFS LIFs and CIFS LIFs, and is displayed as N/A for these types.

  • IOPS

    The input/output operations per second. IOPS is not applicable to NFS LIFs and CIFS LIFs, and is displayed as N/A for these types.

  • MB/s

    The throughput on the interface, measured in megabytes per second.

  • Cluster

    The cluster to which the interface belongs. You can click the cluster’s name to navigate to that cluster’s details page.

  • Cluster FQDN

    The fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the cluster.

  • SVM

    The storage virtual machine to which the interface belongs. You can click the SVM name to navigate to that SVM’s details page.

  • Home Location

    The home location for the interface, displayed as node name and port name, separated by a colon (:). If the location is displayed with an ellipsis (…​), you can position your cursor over the location name to view the full location.

  • Current Location

    The current location for the interface, displayed as node name and port name, separated by a colon (:). If the location is displayed with an ellipsis (…​), you can position your cursor over the location name to view the full location.

  • Role

    The interface role: Data, Cluster, Node Management, or Intercluster.

  • Threshold Policy

    The user-defined performance threshold policy, or policies, that are active on this storage object. You can position your cursor over policy names containing an ellipsis (…​) to view the full policy name or the list of assigned policy names. The Assign Performance Threshold Policy and Clear Performance Threshold Policy buttons remain disabled until you select one or more objects by clicking the check boxes located at the far left.
