After you define your infrastructure into segments, or capacity pools, TrueSight Capacity Optimization automatically analyzes the right metrics on a daily basis and creates high-level indicators on Usage, Risk, and Efficiency, for each capacity pool. These indicators are displayed in a graphical view called the Capacity Pools view.
Using the Capacity Pools view, you can quickly see a list of all the capacity pools in your infrastructure, easily see the capacity utilization of aggregated entities, and effectively manage the capacity of your entire IT infrastructure.
The Capacity Pools view displays the ranking for each capacity pool based on the Usage, Risk, and Efficiency score. Those scores are based on the CPU, Memory, and Disk usage of the capacity pool:
From these key indicators, you can navigate to more infrastructure-oriented views. For more information about how you can use these key indicators, see Using Usage, Risk, and Efficiency indicators.
The indicators for Usage and Risk are based on thresholds.
