ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

statistics disk show

Disk throughput and latency metrics

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the advanced privilege level.


This command continuously displays performance data for disks at a regular interval. The command output displays data in the following columns:

  • Disk - disk name.

  • Node - node name.

  • Busy (%) - percentage of time there was at least one outstanding request to the disk.

  • Total Ops - total operations per second.

  • Read Ops - read operations per second.

  • Write Ops - write operations per second.


[-disk <text>] - Disk

Selects the disk for which you want to display performance data.

[-node {<nodename>|local}] - Node

Selects the node for which you want to display performance data.

[-sort-key <text>] - Column to Sort By

If this parameter is specified, the command displays statistics sorted by the specified column.

-interval <integer> - Interval

Specifies, in seconds, the interval between statistics updates. The default setting is 5 seconds.

-iterations <integer> - Iterations

Specifies the number of iterations the command runs before terminating. The default setting is 1. If the number is 0 (zero), the command continues to run until you interrupt it by pressing Ctrl-C.

-max <integer> - Maximum Number of Instances

Specifies the maximum number of disks to display. The default setting is 25.


The following example displays disk statistics:

cluster1::> statistics disk show
cluster1 : 12/31/1969 16:00:04

                   Busy *Total Read Write

 VMw-1.30    node2    0      3    0     3
 VMw-1.3     node1    0      0    0     0
