EMC – Check on a RAID Group’s defragmentation progress with naviseccli

For those of you still using RAID Groups on the CX4, you’ll know that you sometimes need to defragment them to get a contiguous amount of free space, particularly if you’ve unbound LUNs in the group that sit between other, remaining LUNs. If you kick off a whole bunch of defrags and then want a quick way to check the progress, why not use naviseccli? The getrg option is the one you want to use in this example.

naviseccli -h 256.256.256.256 getrg -prcntdf

The output will look something like this:

RaidGroup ID: 0
Percent defragmented: 100
RaidGroup ID: 1
Percent defragmented: 100
RaidGroup ID: 2
Percent defragmented: 100
RaidGroup ID: 3
Percent defragmented: 1
RaidGroup ID: 4
Percent defragmented: 1
RaidGroup ID: 5
Percent defragmented: 100
RaidGroup ID: 6
Percent defragmented: 2
RaidGroup ID: 7
Percent defragmented: 1
RaidGroup ID: 8
Percent defragmented: 100
