Usage Guidelines

  • This command allows history performance statistics files to be exported only to an FTP server or an SFTP server connected to the storage system.
    Prerequisites for using this command:
    • The storage system can access the FTP server or SFTP server.
    • The FTP service or SFTP service on the server has been enabled.
    • The folder for storing history performance statistics files has been created. The folder name cannot contain spaces.
  • The storage system can automatically name exported history performance statistics files with the .tgz file name expansion.
  • If the storage system serves as a server in the file transfer with external systems, it supports the SFTP service only. If the storage system serves as a client, it supports both the FTP and SFTP services.


  • Query existing performance statistics files.
