Hosts to Systems page in the Hosts view

The Hosts to Systems page in the Hosts view enables you to get more information about the storage system mapped to a specific host and more especially:

  • the storage system name
  • the number of storage pools and volumes attached to the host
  • how much capacity is exposed to each host
  • how much capacity is actually consumed.

To access the page, in the TrueSight console navigation pane, click Capacity > Storage > Hosts, and in the Hosts view page, click the Hosts to Systems tab.

Metrics per host 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 host and displays the following metrics, which are computed from the Hosts to Pools page.

Host-related metrics are not available when the option Disabled and Collected for metric computation (Default) are selected in the ETL additional settings. Refer to Customizing Volumes and Shares Monitoring for more information.
