Future Saturations page in the KVM Overview view

The Future Saturations page in the KVM view displays all partitions that are projected to have CPU, memory, or file system saturation within the next 30 days. The 30 day default can be changed by modifying the 'Future Saturation – Show partitions whose forecasted days to saturation are under or equal to threshold' parameter. All values are calculated over the last full month and the current month.

The Future Saturations tab allows you to toggle between viewing future saturation details for:

For more information on viewing future saturation details for KVM partitions refer to the following sections:

Certain minimum amount of historical data is required to provide accurate Days to Saturation (DTS) values. Therefore, Yesterday and Last 7 days time filter selection is not applied to DTS calculation. DTS calculation is always based on last 30 days of data.

Using data filter and other controls in tables

You can export and filter the information that is displayed in tables to suit your need. For instance, you can show or hide columns, filter tables on particular domains, and so on.

For more information, see Exporting and filtering tables.
