There was a requirement came to me to capture the snapshots details on an IBM Storwize V7000 storage. so, I wrote a simple PERL script to generate HTML report and send it to the stake holders and storage team via email. I’ve used the command ‘lsfcmap’ to list the snapshot details. Using PERL I’ve captured required output in desired order and format to suit our requirements.
Please find below report generated and sent over an email (split into two images for better readability)
- Can run the script via scheduler or On-Demand
- Sorted based on descending order to list the oldest snapshots on top of the list
- Old reports are archived for future reference or troubleshooting purposes
Please let me know if you need the script to replicate for your V7K’s.
