Storage Systems page in the Storage Systems view
The Storage Systems page in the Storage Systems view enables you to verify :
- the capacity of your storage systems and know if they can meet future allocation requirements
- the bandwidth utilization of your storage systems and if more ports can be added.
To access the page, in the TrueSight console navigation pane, click Capacity > Storage > Storage Systems, and in the Storage Systems page, click the Storage Systems tab.
Metrics per storage system are displayed in a tabular format.
By default, some columns are hidden. You can show or hide columns using the action menuthat is located next to the table title.
Each row in the table represents a storage system and displays the following metrics:
Name of the storage system.
|Vendor||System vendor.||Not applicable||ST_SYSTEM_VENDOR|
|Model||Model of the system.||Not applicable||ST_SYSTEM_MODEL|
|Size [TB]||Overall size of the component in Terabytes. For a storage system, this value is the sum of the raw size of all disks.||Average on the latest day||ST_SIZE|
|Capacity [TB]||Total capacity in Terabytes. For storage systems, unused raw space plus sum of the capacity for all storage pools.||Average on the latest day||ST_CAPACITY|
|Configured Capacity [TB]1|
Total capacity in Terabytes configured for Volumes.
|Average on the latest day||ST_CONFIGURED_VOLUME_CAPACITY|
|Configured Capacity [%]1||Percentage of configured capacity in the storage system.||Average on the latest day||ST_CONFIGURED_VOLUME_CAPACITY_PCT|
|Subscribed Capacity [TB]||Sum of the host visible capacity (in Terabytes) for all volumes in the storage system. Can be greater than the actual capacity of the storage system for over-subscribed thin pools.||Average on the latest day||ST_SYSTEM_SUBSCRIBED_CAPACITY|
|Available Capacity [TB]||Capacity not consumed in Terabytes. For storage systems, unused raw space plus available capacity in storage.||Average on the latest day||ST_AVAILABLE_CAPACITY|
|Consumed Capacity [TB]||Capacity actually consumed in Terabytes.||Average on the latest day||ST_CONSUMED_CAPACITY|
|Consumed Capacity [%]||Percentage of capacity actually consumed.||Average on the latest day||ST_CONSUMED_CAPACITY_PCT|
|Number of Ports|
Total number of ports.
|Bandwidth [Gbit/s]||Data transfer rate in Gigabytes per second.||Not applicable||ST_SYSTEM_BANDWIDTH|
|Bandwidth Utilization [%]||Amount of bandwidth currently in use by the port.||Average on the last 30 rolling days||ST_SYSTEM_BANDWIDTH_UTIL|
To view details for a specific storage system
To view the details page for a particular storage system, click its (hyper-linked) name under the Storage System column.
The details page displays information for the selected storage system under the following sections or panels:
|Section or Panel||Description|
A quick summary of all the capacity and traffic information available for the storage system.
|Configuration Details page||Configuration information about the storage system. The information displayed in this page depends on the configuration data metrics available in the entity. They are described in the ETL User Documentation.|
|Controllers and Ports|
Information about the controllers and ports of the storage system (controller name, port name, type, address, bandwidth).
Information about the storage system disks (name, model, type, revolution per minute, size).
