Show volume action progress

Contributors netapp-driley

The show volume actionProgress command returns information about the volume action and amount of the long-running operation that is completed for a long-running operation on a volume.

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 or Storage Monitor role.



With firmware version 7.77, the show volume actionProgress command is deprecated. Replace this command with show storageArray longRunningOperations.

The amount of the long-running operation that is completed is shown as a percentage (for example, 25 means that 25 percent of the long-running operation is completed).
