These options provide information about how the DASD in your enterprise is being used and who is using it. You can use this information to make decisions about adding DASD or reallocating space.
Using the TIME command, you can view trends in DASD usage over specified time periods. For more information about using the TIME command, see the MainView User Guide. For more information about MainView SRM data collectors, see the Reference for MainView SRM Reporting.
The Space Utilization menu options are divided into the following categories:
- Space collector (DASD Utilization options)
- Space databases (Space database options)
- Capacity Planning (Capacity planning options)
To access space utilization information about storage resources, you first select a resource type, such as storage groups and pools. From the resulting list of resources, you can drill down to an individual resource, such as a specific storage group. Selecting a resource produces a more detailed report about the resource or accesses an EZCmd menu that provides additional space utilization options.
