EVAPerf error: Failed to open output file

Hi, I am using EVAPerf. When I run a simple command like this, it works fine:
evaperf pdg -cont 5 -dur 30

When I try to run a command to output the data to csv files, I get the following error scrolling:

Failed to open output file: \5000-1FE1-501E-BAE0\5000-1FE1-501E-BAE0_pdg_.csv

Any ideas?

Also, is there a way to narrow down this command a bit, where it will only show output for a certain host and its vdisks? Thanks.

Whoops, here is the command I am running that is giving me the errors:

evaperf mof -cont -dur 30 -csv -ts2

Hi,

You need to redirect the output to specific file. below is example

evaperf all -cont 5 -dur 20 -ts2 -csv >c:\capture.csv

which will create a file on C:\.

Thanks Sivaramakrishna for your reply. However it is my understanding that the command above should automatically create an output folder named after the array which will have multiple csv files written to it (note use of mof in my command above - multiple object files).

Is the Command View EVA on windows 2008?. I have seen some permission issues with the folders.

Could u please check the folder permissions..

I can check the same after 2-3 days and can give u update on this..

Re: EVAPerf error: Failed to open output file

I stumbled upon the same problem today. The key is to use the "-od" (output directory) command line option.

 

evaperf mof -csv -cont -dur 30 -od D:\evaperflogs

 

 That should create a subfolder under D:\evaperflogs for each EVA that you are monitoring with multiple CSV files.
