Use the Explorer to browse through the StorageConsole templates, dashboards and reports. The navigation pane displays templates organized by products along with user-created, and system folders. This report is located here:
Line charts, aggregated by Server Groups or Arrays, and grouped by a configurable time period, show allocated capacity over time. You can view a historical perspective on the amount of storage allocated to the ESX Clusters or Server Groups. This helps to illustrate the growth of your environment by ESX clustered or Server Group.
Use the Capacity Forecast report to project growth in storage usage. You can generate the report by the following criteria:
Historical date range
Forecast horizon (date range)
Storage Type (SAN, DAS and NAS)
Host Type
In addition, you can choose to generate graphs for each host or instead, display a consolidated graph for all the hosts selected in the scope selector.
