List Exadata Storage Cell disk summary with cellpd.sql and cellpdx.sql scripts

In the previous post I explained how to list Exadata disk layout and topology details with the exadisktopo scripts, in this post I’ll introduce one celldisk overview script, which I use to quickly see the celldisk configuration, specs and error statuses. The cellpd.sql script (Cell Physical Disk) will show the following output:

SQL> @exadata/cellpd.sql
Show Exadata cell versions from V$CELL_CONFIG....

Above you see that some of my Flash Disks are missing and before they went completely missing (because the Oracle Ninja removed them :) these disks indicated the “poor performance” status.

The cellpdx.sql script will display extended info for each celldisk, including disk model, firmware version, serial number and various error metrics. Warning, lots of wide output coming again:
