Group and pool analysis

Using data gathered by the performance and space collectors, the Group and Pool Analysis reports provide you with space usage and performance information, such as the amount of free space or response times, for the storage groups and pools in your enterprise.

You can drill down to a specific volume in the group/pool and use the EZPOOL EZCmd menu options to get historical performance and utilization information or real-time data on that storage group or pool.

Using the information in the reports, you can anticipate and prevent out-of-space conditions or correct problems that cause slow response times. You can also view summary reports on the data sets within storage groups and pools based on properties such as data set size and age.

For historical data options, the snapshot time is determined from the settings of the TIME command. If you do not use the TIME command, MainView SRM displays the most current snapshot. For information about using the TIME command, see the Using MainView products or type Help TIME on the COMMAND line to access online Help.

For more information about MainView SRM data collectors, see Reference for MainView SRM Reporting.

When you select Group and Pool Analysis from the EZSRM menu, you advance to the Group and Pool Analysis EZCmd menu, which is divided into these subcategories:
