Oracle ZFS NDMP Traffic Test

Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP) enables heterogeneous network file servers to communicate directly to a network-attached tape device for backup or recovery. This test monitors total NDMP data transferred per second during backup or restore operations and helps isolate irregularities in load balancing across the disks. NDMP Statistics is zero unless NDMP is configured and active.

Target of the test : Oracle ZFS Storage System

Agent deploying the test : A remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the Oracle ZFS Storage System being monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test period

How often should the test be executed.


The IP address of the target system that is being monitored.


The port number through which Oracle ZFS Storage System communicates. The default port is 215.

User, Password and Confirm Password

By default, this test uses the REST API commands to pull out the required metrics. To execute the REST API commands, the eG agent requires the permission of a local administrator user who has been assigned with Basic role and a custom role with Analytics authorization and read permission. Specify the credentials of such a user in the USERNAME and PASSWORD text boxes and confirm the Password by retyping it in the CONFIRM PASSWORD text box. To create a new user with the required permissions, refer Creating a new user on Oracle ZFS Storage System.


Specify the time duration for which this test should wait for a response from the storage system in the TIMEOUT text box. By default, this is 60 seconds.
