Advanced Find

The tabs for specific entities (like LUNs, Disks, Pools, NASVolumes) quickly identify the Top 15 objects exhibiting the “worst” values for a particular metric. Often, however, there is a need to locate objects by name, or with other characteristics. Use the Advanced Find functionality to locate these items.

Queries can be constructed using a combination of Property conditions and Metric conditions.

The metric conditions area lets you easily construct a more complex query that can include up to 3 conditions on metrics.

1
Period. Refers to the time range on the zonar displayed in the upper right-hand corner. Select the time the query should use for the metric values. When n/a is selected, this condition is ignored.
2
Metric. This drop down shows the metrics available for this entity type for this vendor.

Click the + icon if you want to add another condition. The next condition row will be preceded by a AND/OR selector. A trash can icon will appear to the right of the + icon to let you remove a condition.
