Save storage array SOC counts

Contributors netapp-driley

The save storageArray SOCCounts command saves the SOC error statistics 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.


This command is valid only for Fibre Channel devices in an arbitrated loop topology.


save storageArray SOCCounts file="filename"


Parameter Description


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

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

The default name of the file that contains the SOC error statistics is soc-statistics.csv. You can use any file name, but you must use the .csv extension.


To more effectively save SOC error statistics to a file, perform these steps:

  1. Run the reset storageArray SOCBaseline command to set all of the SOC counters to 0.

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

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