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:
