Monitoring the storage pool

Each storage pool landing page provides over-subscription ratios, identifies correlated resources, LUN and disk utilization, as well as policy breaches and violations that have occurred with the storage pool.

Use the storage pool landing page to identify any potential problems with the physical assets supporting your virtual infrastructure. You can track capacity and capacity ratios trending over 30 days or use a custom time frame. Pay attention to data in the following sections to monitor the status of the storage pool.
