Methods of customizing show command output by using fields

When you use the –instance parameter with a show command to display details, the output can be lengthy and include more information than you need. The –fields parameter of a show command enables you to display only the information you specify.

For example, running volume show -instance is likely to result in several screens of information. You can use volume show –fields fieldname[,fieldname...] to customize the output so that it includes only the specified field or fields (in addition to the default fields that are always displayed.) You can use –fields ? to display valid fields for a show command.

The following example shows the output difference between the –instance parameter and the –fields parameter:

cluster1::> volume show -instance
