This command continuously displays performance data for the top NFS and CIFS clients at a regular interval. The command output displays data in the following columns:

  • Client - client name.

  • Vserver - vserver name.

  • Node - node name.

  • Total IOPs - total number of operations per second.

  • Total (Bps) - total throughput in bytes per second.


[-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
