ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

statistics volume show

Volume throughput and latency metrics

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.


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

  • Volume - volume name.

  • Vserver - vserver name.

  • Aggregate - aggregate name.

  • Total Ops - total number of operations per second.

  • Read Ops - read operations per second.

  • Write Ops - write operations per second.

  • Other Ops - other operations per second.

  • Read (Bps) - read throughput in bytes per second.

  • Write (Bps) - write throughput in bytes per second.

  • Latency(us) - average latency for an operation in microseconds.


[-volume <text>] - Volume

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

[-vserver <vserver name>] - Vserver

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

[-aggregate <text>] - Aggregate

Selects the aggregate 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 volumes to display. The default setting is 25.


The following example displays volume statistics:

cluster1::> statistics volume show
