Storage Shares page in the Storage Systems view

The Storage Shares page in the Storage Systems view enables you to quickly obtain any information about the shares available in your environment. 

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


Metrics per storage share 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 share and displays the following metrics:




Storage Share

Name of the share.Not applicableNAME
Storage SystemName of the system.Not applicableSA_CONTAINS_SHARE
Share TypeType of the share.Not applicableST_VOLUME_TYPE
StateState of the share.Not applicableST_VOLUME_STATE
Space GuaranteeSpace allocated for a volume from its containing aggregate--whether the space is preallocated for the entire volume or for only the reserved files or LUNs in the volume, or whether space for user data is not preallocated.Average on the latest dayST_VOLUME_SPACE_GUARANTEE
Size [GB]Overall size of the component in Gigabytes.Average on the latest dayST_CONFIG_SIZE
Capacity [GB]Total capacity in Gigabytes.Not applicableST_CAPACITY
Committed Size [GB]Total capacity committed to the Storage Share in the Storage Pool. The committed capacity can be larger than the Storage Pool capacity.Average on the latest dayST_COMMITTED_CAPACITY
Available Capacity [GB]Capacity not consumed in Gigabytes.Average on the latest dayST_AVAILABLE_CAPACITY
Available Capacity [%]Percentage of capacity not consumed.Average on the latest dayST_AVAILABLE_CAPACITY_PCT
Consumed Capacity [GB]Capacity actually consumed in Gigabytes.Average on the latest dayST_CONSUMED_CAPACITY
Consumed Capacity [%]Percentage of the share subscribed capacity that has been actually consumed by the host. Will be typically less than 100% for thin shares. Will be exactly 100% for all traditional shares. Can be greater than 100% when the storage system saves additional metadata that are not taken into account in the share's capacity.Average on the latest dayST_CONSUMED_CAPACITY_PCT
Days to Saturation

The projected number of days before the share runs out of available capacity. The value of this metric is automatically computed in the storage shares related data mart and reported as follows:

  • 'Not saturated' (green): The number of days to saturation is greater than 99999
  • 'Saturated' (red): The number of days to saturation equals -1
  • 'N/A': Not enough data to compute the value.
  • In any other case, the metric reports the number of days to saturation as computed in the data mart.

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 PanelDescription
Summary page

A quick summary of all the capacity and traffic information available for the storage system.

Configuration Details pageConfiguration 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).
