I'm trying to do administration of NetApp devices through the HTTP-administration, and have seen no clue or mention of the deduplication feature.
Our version of OnTap is 7.3.4.
I know I can access this on the SSH cli session ("sis status" and "df -s"), but I'm looking for a way to get the deduplication status through HTTP. Does anyone know how it can be done?
Also, is there a general guide as to which HTTP commands I may access on our NetApp device? (e.g. sending an HTTP request and getting an XML response back from the device)
Thanks in advance!
Almost certain filerview never implemented deduplication functions. As well this is not available going forward in future 8.x based releases. I would suggest you look into the netapp SDK for other management options that use a well defined API and light weight remote calls. Similarity there is the power shell toolkit.
Thanks for the answer, I am referring to the light-weight remote calls (HTTP or HTTPS requests), not the human Web-interface FilerView.
The problem is I could not find any info on these Web light weight remote calls. No API for them...
I know our code calls commands like "VolumeListInfo" and "LunListInfo" and such, but I can't seem to find any command that will retrieve any deduplication status from the NetApp device
If you know of a document which lists the possible HTTP / HTTPS calls I can make to the device, with the various commands I may call, it would be very helpful...
Ah that is a bit more clear. Now I read you. Have you seen this thread? https://communities.netapp.com/thread/5637
Basically volume-list-info should return sis-info if the volume in question is deduplicated. Or you would use sis-info without any paths and it woudl return the status of all sis volumes. Or you could use sis-info with a valid path and it would return status for just that path.
