Probe to calculate latency and free space in a file system

  vovfsprobe type name testdir period [OPTIONS]

WHERE:
   type            Just a descriptive string (e.g. ISILON, NETAPP, GENERIC);
                   It does not affect the behavior of the probe.
   name            The nickname given to the filesystem;
                   It is used in naming the metrics.
   testdir         The full path to a writable directory in the filer.
   period          How often the test is run (e.g. 20s, 1m, 4m )


OPTIONS:
   -v              -- Increase verbosity

OPTIONS TO AFFECT LATENCY PROBE::
   -sz SZ          -- Change size of test file (default 32k)
   -r  N           -- Number of repetitions    (default 1)

The probe creates  metrics:
   Filer=NAME/Latency             in ms
   Filer=NAME/LatencyLowPass      in ms
   Filer=NAME/FreeMB              in MB
   Filer=NAME/UsedMB              in MB
This probe never stops. 


EXAMPLES:
  % vovfsprobe ISILON IS1 /remote/ifstest/ttt  30s
  % vovfsprobe ISILON IS1 /remote/ifstest/ttt  30s -sz 100000 -r 10
