Attribute types

The StorageGRID Webscale system includes the following attribute types, summary and individual.

Summary attributes

Provide a convenient synopsis of information about the deployment, data center site, or grid node.

Summary attributes provide an overview of capacities and operations, including storage capacity, ILM activity, API operations, and Archive Node object counts. Summary attributes appear on the StorageGRID Webscale system Grid > Overview > Main pages for the deployment, data center site, or grid node.

Summary attributes are calculated at fixed intervals from the values of attributes for individual grid nodes and services, and provide a convenient means to review information about the deployment, data center site, or grid node. The values of summary attributes should be taken as estimates as they are calculated based on the current attribute’s value known at the time of calculation. Note that the reporting of summary attributes is subject to propagation delays within the StorageGRID Webscale system and it can take a few moments before an update is visible.

Individual attributes

Provide information about specific data center sites, grid nodes, services, and components.
