Looking for a command. It might just be in here somewhere. I’ll update as I find useful ones.


Performance Stats

isi statistics drive --nodes=all --orderby=busy --type=sas,sata --top
isi statistics drive --nodes=all --orderby=busy --type=sas,sata | head -n 30


isi_for_array -s isi_hw_status | grep -i 'power sup'


First command will list all the external facing interfaces on the cluster. The second will list the available smart connect pools and also whether we have any suspended nodes.

isi networks list interfaces
isi networks list pools --verbose

This next command will exclude a node from a smartconnect zone if there is an issue with the node. For example if the node has an issue with its lagg interface.

isi networks modify pool --name=<name-of-pool> --sc-suspend-node=<node-no.>

This one is to rebalance the pool

isi networks modify pool --name=<name-of-pool> --sc-rebalance

This command will list which node a dynamic IP is attached to. The first number returned is the node.

isi networks list interfaces --wide | grep <IP Address>

This next command is for listing the pools configured so you can use that information to do something

isi networks list pools --verbose

Once you have the information required the following command will remove specific interfaces from a dynamic pool. Useful when the web interface is sluggish and you need to remove nodes because of lagg interface issues.

isi networks modify pool --name=<Network_name:Pool_name> --remove-ifaces=<Node:Interface_name>

Find Serial Number

SSH to the required node and run:

isi config

Find Disk Status

SSH to a node and run the following command:

isi devices -d 1

The -d option is per node so you can get the status of all disks in each node from 1 session.

Find Pool Status including VHS size

Use the following command to get full stats on the storage pool status

isi storagepool nodepools list -v

Also try the following to get info on the pool size and usage

isi stat -d -q

SyncIQ Backups

isi_classic sync jobs report

This will provide useful output on the status and throughput of a job operation.

If you have a policy you need to delete, you can break association on the target and use the following to delete the policy on the source.

isi sync policies delete --policy<policy-name> --local-only
