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 are displayed in a tabular format and presented in 3 different views:

By default, some columns are hidden. You can show or hide columns using the action menuthat is located next to the table title.
