“Shows” in Clustered ONTAP 8.2.1 Clustershell


This post here presented a way to list all the “show” commands from diag level of the Clustershell by creating a special role and user -

security login role create -vserver CLUS -role shows -cmddirname DEFAULT -access readonly
security login role create -vserver CLUS -role shows -cmddirname set -access all
security login create -username shows -application ssh -authmethod password -role shows -vserver CLUS

- and logging into the cluster using that account, and running the following commands:

rows 0
set -privilege diagnostic
security login role show-user-capability -fields operation-command-directory-path

And below is the edited output (all 651 entries.)

How to Use the List

An idea of how to use this is that you could run the following commands -

set -showallfields true
set -showseparator “#”

- and run all the shows from list below (skip the ones that have periodic outputs), and you’d have close to all the possible information obtainable from the Clustershell at diag level. It could be imported into Excel using # as a separator to create something more readable. This is not a good idea though, way too much data (like ~300’000 lines from a simple single-node SIM, not using showallfields)!

It is pretty amazing how much information is there - all interesting stuff!

A more realistic approach would be to do this for a subset of show commands. For example - to get all the “volume quota” outputs; or a company tailored specific set of “shows”.

The List of “Shows”

1. Periodic Type “Shows” (8)

qos statistics characteristics show
qos statistics latency show
qos statistics performance show
qos statistics workload characteristics show
qos statistics workload latency show
qos statistics workload performance show
statistics show-periodic
statistics-v1 show-periodic

2. Admin Level “Shows” (565) {excluding certain Advanced Level and above command directories}

Note 1: Some of these shows may need additional arguments to give output.
Note 2: Some of these commands aren’t “shows” like sleep (kept in the list for completeness.)
