Managing Capacity Quick-Start List
Use the following sequence of selected reports to become acquainted with the details that support your capacity management process. This quick-start list provides a brief preview of the capacity optimization that can be achieved using Capacity Manager.
Note: Keep in mind that in an enterprise, multiple teams have various responsibilities in the storage provisioning process—providing ample opportunities for storage to drop out of sight.
Capacity Manager Reports
Focus your attention on:
Generate this report by selecting one or more storage arrays. Then, expand/contract a row to view the mount point details. See LUN Utilization Summary.
Then, generate this report again and in the Scope Selector window, select the LUN status of: Allocated but undiscovered. Note that in this version of the report, mount point details are missing because the storage has been allocated, but has not yet been discovered and therefore it cannot be used by an application. This same report is available as: Allocated but Undiscovered LUNs.
Without this report, an administrator would have to touch every host to gather information. This report, along with the Host Utilization Detail report, replaces manually created spreadsheets for tracking host usage.
Click a host link to view the Host Utilization Detail report.
Access this report from a host link in the Host Capacity & Utilization report.
Expand the Volume Group Details (click on the +) to identify unallocated space in a Volume Group and logical volumes that are not being used by hosts. These details highlight inefficient use of storage.
Expand the Disk Details (click on the +) to view the raw disk paths, storage types, and LUNs associated with disks.
Use this report to identify LUNs that have been allocated, but the storage is not being used by the host.
Click a host link to view the Host Utilization Detail report.
Focus on the two columns at the right of this report—RAID Group Capacity and LUN Capacity— and their corresponding usage thermometers.
Identify which applications are expected to exceed storage capacity and when.
