Creating a report to view HA pairs with the most available capacity

You can create a report to find the high availability (HA) pairs with the most capacity to provision new volumes and LUNs.

Before you begin

About this task

Use the following steps to create a custom view that displays HA pairs sorted by the most available capacity to provision new volumes and LUNs, and then schedule a report to be generated for that view.

Steps

  1. In the left navigation pane, click Storage > Clusters.
  2. In the View menu, select Capacity > All Clusters.
  3. Select Show/Hide to remove any columns you do not want in the report.
  4. Drag the "Aggregate Unused Capacity" column near the "HA Pair" column.
  5. Click the filter icon, add the following filter, and then click Apply Filter:
    • Aggregate Unused Capacity greater than 0.5 TB
  6. Click the top of the "Aggregate Unused Capacity" column to sort the results by the greatest amount of unused aggregate capacity.
  7. Save the view with a specific name that reflects what the view is showing, for example "Least used aggregate capacity" and click the check mark ().
  8. Click the Scheduled Reports button on the inventory page.
  9. Click Add Schedule to add a new row to the Report Schedules page so you can define the schedule characteristics for the new report.
  10. Enter a name for the report schedule and complete the other report fields, then click the checkmark () at the end of the row.
    The report is sent immediately as a test. After that, the report generates and is sent by email to the recipients listed using the specified frequency.

After you finish

Based on the results shown in the report, you might want to balance HA pairs based on aggregate capacity.
