    Available Storage

    Displays the available and used storage capacity in the entire grid, not including archival media.

    The Overall chart presents grid-wide totals. If this is a multi-site grid, additional charts appear for each data center site.

    With this information, you can compare the used storage with the available storage and in multi-site grids, determine which site is consuming more.

    • To view the capacity, place your cursor over the chart's available and used capacity sections.
    • To change the date range or select other data, click the chart icon in the upper right of the panel.

      The default date range in charts on this page is one month.

    • To see available storage details, click Grid. Then, view the details for the entire grid, an entire site, or a single Storage Node.
    For details about reviewing Storage Node information, see the section about managing disk storage in the Administrator Guide.
