NVMe Subsystems window

Contributors netapp-ivanad

The NVMe Subsystems window displays by default an inventory list of NVMe subsystems in a cluster. You can filter the list to display only subsystems that are specific to an SVM. The window also enables you to create, edit, or delete NVMe subsystems. You can access this window by selecting Storage > NVMe > Subsystems.

NVMe Subsystems table

The NVMe Subsystems table lists the inventory of NVMe subsystems in a cluster. You can refine the list by using the drop-down menu in the SVM field to select an SVM to display only the NVMe subsystems associated with that SVM. The Search field and Filtering drop-down menu enable you to further customize the list.

The NVMe Subsystems table contains the following columns:

  • (check box)

    Enables you to specify on which subsystems you want to perform actions.

    Click the check box to select the subsystem, then click the action in the toolbar that you want to perform.

  • Name

    Displays the name of the subsystem.

    You can search for a subsystem by entering its name in the Search field.

  • Host OS

    Displays the name of the host OS associated with the subsystem.

  • Host NQN

    Displays the NVMe Qualified Name (NQN) attached to the controller. If multiple NQNs are displayed, they are separated by commas.

  • Associated NVMe Namespaces

    Displays the number of the NVM namespaces associated with the subsystem. You can hover over the number to display the associated namespaces paths. Click on a path to display the Namespace Details window.


The toolbar is located above the column header. You can use the fields and buttons in the toolbar to perform various actions.

  • Search

    Enables you to search on values that might be found in the Name column.

  • Filtering

    Allows you to select from a drop-down menu that lists various methods of filtering the list.

  • Create

    Opens the Create NVMe Subsystem dialog box, which enables you to create an NVMe subsystem.

  • Edit

    Opens the Edit NVMe Subsystem dialog box, which enables you to edit an existing NVMe subsystem.

  • Delete

    Opens the Delete NVMe Subsystem confirmation dialog box, which enables you to delete an existing NVMe subsystem.
