Use the CLI to quickly determine the size of your Celerra checkpoint filesystems

Need to quickly figure out which checkpoint filesystems are taking up all of your precious savvol space?  Run the CLI command below.  Filling up the savvol storage pool can cause all kinds of problems besides failing checkpoints.  It can also cause filesystem replication jobs to fail.

To view it on the screen:

nas_fs -query:IsRoot==False:TypeNumeric==1 -format:’%s\n%q’ -fields:Name,Checkpoints -query:TypeNumeric==7 -format:’   %40s : %5d : %s\n’ -fields:Name,ID,Size

To save it in a file:

nas_fs -query:IsRoot==False:TypeNumeric==1 -format:’%s\n%q’ -fields:Name,Checkpoints -query:TypeNumeric==7 -format:’   %40s : %5d : %s\n’ -fields:Name,ID,Size > checkpoints.txt

vi checkpoints.txt   (to view the file)

Here’s a sample of the output:

ckpt_ckpt_UserFilesystem_01_monthly_001 :   836 : 220000
ckpt_ckpt_UserFilesystem_01_monthly_002 :   649 : 220000

ckpt_ckpt_UserFilesystem_02_monthly_001 :   836 : 80000
ckpt_ckpt_UserFilesystem_02_monthly_002 :   649 : 80000

The numbers are in MB.
