How to get the EVA5000 disk array's performance data, such as iops and bps?

And where can I get the performance data, on the SMA or on the Host?

Thanks.

Command View EVA V4 includes a component called EVAperf - it is automatically installed. You can download this component for CV-EVA V3 as a separate install:

It need to be installed on a Windows system that has a fibre channel connection to the EVA. I have tried it on a non-SMA management server, but I think it will work on the SMA and a Windows system without CV-EVA on it.

Hi MA,
I used the EVAperf just last week, its great in the fact that it gives u alot of numbers, interpreting is a real pain....i got read writes in kbs and also latencies and queues .. i went through the document but i was looking for throughput values same as urself.. i guess... any ideas Uwe ?

Maybe we can not get the iops by evaperf.exe.
The user guide doesn't mention it.

I see read and write requests/sec ore MB/sec on several performance objects in the EVAperf line-mode utility. Did you use this whitepaper?
