How to collect a Perfstat7 in Windows

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • Data ONTAP 8 7-mode
  • Windows 7 to 10
  • Windows Server 2008 to 2019 or newer


  • SSH must be used to collect Perfstats from Windows 7, Server 2008, and newer. Perfstat 7.39 uses openSSH.
    • The latest Data ONTAP 7-Mode version of Perfstat can be located here.
  • Note:
    • Perfstat only collects data from the time it is running. 
      • Therefore, run the perfstat data collector during a time the problem is perceived, unless otherwise instructed by NetApp support.
    • If you wish to use the GUI, please see our article on collecting perfstat7 from the GUI for Windows.
