  • 1.  Spectrum REST Using Partial Attribute Name

    Posted 01-25-2016 02:25 PM

    I understand I can use REST to retrieve specific attributes for a specific device.  Is there a way to get all attributes whose name contains "_thresh" for a specific device (or collection)?  This would give me all of the threshold attributes for the device preventing me from needing to "pick" a specific list of attributes.  If I cannot do this from a device query is there a way using either CLI or REST to get a list of the attributes (with the corresponding code value) that I can, then, use to do the device query?

    The only thing I can think of is if you are in vnmsh and you know what model type you want attributes for try this:


    [spectrum@sp00primls vnmsh]$ ./connect

    [spectrum@sp00primls vnmsh]$ export CLIMNAMEWIDTH=64
    [spectrum@sp00primls vnmsh]$ ./show models | grep -i Online
    0x100008    OnLineBackup                                                      0x10403    OnLineBackup
    [spectrum@sp00primls vnmsh]$ ./show attributes mh=0x100008 | grep -i 'backup'
    0x10000    Modeltype_Name                                        OnLineBackup

    0x11a77    BackupNumber                                          0
    [spectrum@sp00primls vnmsh]$


    Basically I'm looking at all backup attributes for the OnLineBackup model. Note the grep looks for case-insensitive 'backup'. You will get some attributes with the phrase in it which doesn't apply (like the first 3 in the list) but at least you see the others!


    Hope this helps.
