How to gather performance statistics from an EMC XtremIO

The XtremIO GUI looks very slick and it has this chronometer with IOps and MBps and everything, but when you need to have MiTrend analyze the statistics, the questions comes to mind: what statistics, what files?

How do I get my hands on these files?

First log on to the XtremIO GUI. Then click on the administration button

Administration

Now click on the “CLI Terminal TAB” and type:

create-debug-info

The output will look something like this:

XtremIO CLI

If you have more than 1 cluster, you need to specify the cluster id as well by first finding out which id belongs to the cluster you want to gather data from.

show-clusters

Followed by a more detailed create-debug-info command:

create-debug-info cluster-id=2

Now simply copy the http link from the last line of the output and paste it into your favorite browser. That’s it!
