Save storage array RLS counts

Contributors netapp-driley

The save storageArray RLSCounts command saves the read link status (RLS) counters to a file.

Supported Arrays

This command applies to any individual storage array, including the E2700, E5600, E2800, E5700, EF600 and EF300 arrays, as long as all SMcli packages are installed.


To execute this command on an E2800, E5700, EF600, or EF300 storage array, you must have the Storage Admin role.


save storageArray RLSCounts file="filename"


Parameter Description


The file path and the file name to which you want to save the RLS counters. Enclose the file name in double quotation marks (" "). For example:

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

The default name of the file that contains the RLS counts is read-link-status.csv. You can use any file name, but you must use the .csv extension.


To more effectively save RLS counters to a file, perform these steps:

  1. Run the reset storageArray RLSBaseline command to set all of the RLS counters to 0.

  2. Run the storage array for a predetermined amount of time (for instance, two hours).

  3. Run the save storageArray RLSCounts file="filename" command.
