Storage Filers page in the Storage Systems view

The Storage Filers page in the Storage Systems view enables you to quickly obtain any information about the filers available in your environment such as their name and type, their number of shares, their subscribed and consumed capacity and their performance.

To access the page, in the TrueSight console navigation pane, click Capacity Views > Storage > Storage Systems, and in the Storage Systems page, click the Storage Filers tab.

Metrics per storage filer 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 filer and displays the following metrics:




Storage Filer

Name of the filer.Not applicableNAME
Storage systemName of the storage system.Not applicableSA_CONTAINS_FILER
Filer TypeType of the filer.Not applicableST_TYPE
Number of SharesNumber of shares in the filer.Not applicableCount of Storage Shares related to the Storage Filer
Capacity [GB]Total capacity in Gigabytes.Not applicableSum of ST_CAPACITY for the related Storage Share
Consumed Capacity [GB]Capacity actually consumed in Gigabytes.Average on the latest daySum of ST_CONSUMED_CAPACITY for the related Storage Share
Consumed Capacity [%]Percentage of the filer subscribed capacity that has been actually consumed by the host. Will be typically less than 100% for thin filers. Will be exactly 100% for all traditional filers. Can be greater than 100% when the storage system saves additional metadata that are not taken into account in the filer's capacity.Average on the latest dayST_CONSUMED_CAPACITY / ST_CAPACITY
CPU Utilization [%]Percentage of used CPU.Average on the latest dayCPU_UTIL
