Possible values for this argument include "aggregate_info", "cluster_node_info", "lun_info", "net_ifgrp_info", "net_interface_info", "net_port_info", "nvme_info", "nvme_interface_info", "nvme_namespace_info", "nvme_subsystem_info", "ontap_version", "security_key_manager_key_info", "security_login_account_info", "storage_failover_info", "volume_info", "vserver_info", "vserver_login_banner_info", "vserver_motd_info" Can specify a list of values to include a larger subset. Values can also be used with an initial ! to specify that a specific subset should not be collected.
nvme is supported with ONTAP 9.4 onwards.
use "help" to get a list of supported facts for your system.
hostname
