Attributes of the -filtervalue parameters

The -filtervalue parameter filters a view that is based on specific attribute values that relate to each object type. You can combine multiple filters to create specific searches, for example, -filtervalue name=fred:status=online. The help (-filtervalue) specifies the attributes that are available for each object type.

The -filtervalue parameter must be specified with attrib=value. The -filtervalue? and -filtervalue parameters cannot be specified together.
Note: The qualifier characters less than (<) and greater than (>) must be enclosed within double quotation marks (""). For example, -filtervalue vdisk_count "<"4 or port_count ">"1. It is also valid to include the entire expression within double quotation marks. For example, -filtervalue "vdisk_count<4" .
When an attribute requires the -unit parameter, it is specified after the attribute. For example, -filtervalue capacity=24 -unit mb. The following input options are valid for the -unit parameter:
  • b (bytes)
  • kb (Kilobytes)
  • mb (Megabytes)
  • gb (Gigabytes)
  • tb (Terabytes)
  • pb (Petabytes)

Capacity values displayed in units other than bytes might be rounded. When filtering on capacity, use a unit of bytes, -unit b, for exact filtering.

You can use the asterisk (*) character as a wildcard character when names are used. The asterisk character can be used either at the beginning or the end of a text string, but not both. Only one asterisk character can be used in a -filtervalue parameter.
