The TSM Storage Pools Dashboard provides a real-time view into capacity and process status information for the selected list of TSM Storage Pools. In a single pane, you quickly can analyze capacity and process status information for each of the Storage Pools.
Storage Pool Capacity
The pie chart displays the percentage and GBytes used and available for the Storage Pool. The GBytes Used is calculated by multiplying the percentage used by the estimated capacity of the Storage Pool.
Storage Pool Attributes
Backup Instance name
Primary, Copy
Device Type
Sequential, Random
Access Type
Read/Write, Read only
Reclaim Threshold
TSM can reclaim volumes that exceed a reclamation threshold—that is, a percentage of unused space on the volume. This threshold value is set by the TSM administrator, within TSM.
Next Storage Pool
The storage pool that is next in line for backups when the current pool reaches capacity—that is, the destination storage pool for migrated data. TSM automatically requests a storage pool when needed.
Max Scratch
The maximum amount of scratch space allocated to the storage pool. When the number of scratch volumes that TSM is using for the storage pool exceeds the maximum number of scratch volumes specified, the storage pool can run out of space.
Capacity (GB)
Storage pool capacity
% Utilized
Percentage used
% Migrated

Low Mig %
The value used by TSM to start/stop migration. This percentage indicates when the server should stop migrating files to the next available storage pool.
High Mig %

Max Size (MB)
The maximum size of the storage pool.
Storage Pool Utilization
This historical tracking bar chart displays the history of used and available capacity for the selected storage pool.
