SImpliVity data usage via CLi

Hi all, 

Does anyone know of a way to get VM data, local backups, remote backups capacites, as well as data efficiences from the CLi?

Re: SImpliVity data usage via CLi

Thanks for replying Abhishek but svt-backup-show doesn't give me what I'm looking for.

I'm looking for a CLi single command that gives me a cumalitive cluster capacity breakdown, one output for all logical VM data, local backups and remote backups used; a CLi equivilant of the SimpliVify Cluster Capacity view in the GUI.

dsv-balance cmd output gets me close but I don't think this command reports the breakdown between VM data and backup (local and remote) data in the cluster.

I have this requirement for an old Dell OmniCube cluster deployment that's stuck on SVT 3.7.5, no flash vCentre client now and no prospect of upgrading but need a breakdown of the logical and physical usage in the cluster.

Any other ideas, anyone?




Re: SImpliVity data usage via CLi


We do not have one single command for this purpose. We gather the GUI information from a range of different CLI commands and Database queries. However, below commands may help:

dsv-capacity-monitor --> will give a breakdown of free space, intended for support not end user facing.

dsv-backup-show --> Run without arguements for a breakdown of all backups.

dsv-balance-manual --q --> will give you a breakdown of VM size & associated backups.

If you are looking for more in depth than this, then a support ticket would be helpful where we can provide some SQL queries and support-only scripts which would be outside of scope on this forum.

Hope this helps!
