create schedule monitor


The create schedule monitor command is used to create SmartTier I/O monitoring policies. The data recorded by I/O monitoring policies can be used as a reference for formulating data relocation policies.


create schedule monitor name=? pool_id=? period=? [ day_of_week=? ] [ start_time=? ] [ duration=? ]

The value is in the format of HH:MM or H:M. The value ranges from 00:30 to 24:00.

The default value is "24:00".

pool_id=? ID of a storage pool that you want to monitor.

To obtain the value, run "show storage_pool general".

start_time=? Time from which I/O monitoring will be started on a specific day in a week.

The value contains 1 to 31 characters including digits, letters, underscores (_), hyphens (-), and periods (.).

day_of_week=? Day on which I/O monitoring will be cycled weekly. This parameter must be assigned and it is valid only when period=? is set to "weekly".

  • "sun": indicates Sunday.

Usage Guidelines

  • The prerequisite for running this command is that the selected storage pool contains at least two storage tiers.
  • I/O monitoring policies will regularly analyze the data stored in different tiers of the storage pool, and the resulted data will be used as a substantial reference for formulating data relocation policies.
  • OceanStor 18500 V5, 18500 V5 Kunpeng, 18800 V5 and 18800 V5 Kunpeng storage systems support this command.


Create an I/O monitoring policy in storage pool "2", where the name of the policy is "newmonitor", and the policy will be started from "00:00" and lasts for "30" minutes on each Monday.

admin:/>create schedule monitor name=newmonitor pool_id=2 period=weekly day_of_week=mon start_time=00:00 duration=00:30
