How do I know if OnCommand reported latency is accurate?

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • Clustered Data ONTAP / ONTAP
  • All OnCommand products


  • OnCommand products obtain data directly from ONTAP which is a 5 minute average
    • Any work lasting only a few seconds then going idle with high latency will not be reflected or reflected with a very slight increase
  • This is the same data you can get running qos statistics commands or statistics for the workload object

Example: Check qos statistics against the volume using command qos statistics volume latency show.
