Thin volume monitoring

You can monitor thin volumes for space and generate appropriate alerts to prevent out-of-capacity conditions.

Thin-provisioned environments can allocate more logical space than they have underlying physical storage. You can select Storage > Volumes > Thin Volume Monitoring tab to monitor how much growth your thin volumes have before they reach the allocated capacity maximum limit.

You can use the Thin Monitoring view to perform the following actions:

To increase capacity for a thin volume, increase its reported capacity.

Note: SANtricity System Manager does not provide an option to create thin volumes. If you want to create thin volumes, use the Command Line Interface (CLI).
