GetAccountEfficiency

You can use GetAccountEfficiency to get efficiency statistics about a volume account. This method returns efficiency information only for the account you give as a parameter.

Parameters

This method has the following input parameters:

Name Description Type Default value Required
accountID Specifies the volume account for which efficiency statistics are returned. integer None Yes

Return value

This method has the following return value:

Name Description Type
compression The amount of space saved by data compression for all volumes in the account. Stated as a ratio where a value of "1" means data has been stored with no compression. float
deduplication The amount of space saved by not duplicating data for all volumes in the account. Stated as a ratio. float
missingVolumes The volumes that could not be queried for efficiency data. Missing volumes can be caused by the Garbage Collection (GC) cycle being less than an hour old, temporary loss of network connectivity, or restarted services since the GC cycle. integer array
thinProvisioning The ratio of space used to the amount of space allocated for storing data. Stated as a ratio. float
timestamp The last time efficiency data was collected after Garbage Collection (GC), in UTC+0 format. ISO 8601 date string
