Isilon Protocol Throughput

I was recently looking at the performance of an Isilon storage cluster, and needed throughput information on a per-protocol basis. The OneFS web interface clearly shows the number of connections on a per-protocol basis, but only tells us cluster-wide throughput.

However, it is possible to discover per-protocol throughput information on a per-node basis at the command prompt via isi statistics system --nodes --top.
