Answer

  • The acquisition recordings folder has recording files for all monitored clusters.
  • At the end of each cluster data acquisition cycle, a set of logs is produced (and saved as a recording file) and can be used to trace through the acquisition process.
  • These recordings are stored as .zip archives under the following path and are included in support bundles.
    • /var/log/ocie/recording (for Linux operating systems)
    •  \ProgramData\NetApp\OnCommandAppData\au\recording (for Windows operating system)
  • Acquisition recording archives are named as below.
    • netappfoundation_<datasource_name_or_ip>_<yyyy_mm_dd_hh_mm_ss_milliseconds>.zip
    • netappstorageperformance_<datasource_name_or_ip>_<yyyy_mm_dd_hh_mm_ss_milliseconds>.zip
  • It is generally beneficial to keep all recording files, in case there a future analysis will require reviewing any of them.
  • In the event of a full file system, older recording files can be deleted. It is best practice to keep at least 1 month's worth of recording files in this directory.

Additional Information

There is a quota limit of 8GB on the recording folder. Once it reached 8GB the older files are deleted in rotation.
