Monitoring archival capacity

You cannot directly monitor an external archival storage system's capacity through the StorageGRID Webscale system. However, you can monitor whether the Archive Node is still able to send object data to the archival destination, which may be an indication that an expansion of archival media is required.

Before you begin

You must be signed in to the Grid Management Interface using a supported browser.

About this task

You can monitor the Store component to check if the Archive Node can still send object data to the targeted archival storage system. As well, the triggering of the Store Failures (ARVF) alarm may be an indication that the targeted archival storage system has reach capacity and can no longer accept object data.


  1. Select Grid.
  2. Select Archive Node > ARC > Overview> Main.
  3. Check the Store State and Store Status attributes to confirm that the Store component is Online with No Errors.
