Monitoring a tenant account's storage usage

You can monitor how much storage each tenant is using. If you set a storage quota for the tenant, you can see how much of the quota has been consumed.

Before you begin


  1. Select Tenants.
  2. Select the tenant account.
    If your system includes more than 20 items, you can specify how many rows are shown on each page at one time. You can then use your browser's find feature to search for a specific item in the currently displayed rows.
  3. Click Usage.

    The Usage dialog box appears.

    Tenant Usage Modal
    • The Storage Usage panel shows the total amount of storage being used by this tenant, including which buckets (containers for Swift) are consuming the most storage. Up to eight buckets can be shown. The Other segment combines all other buckets, including any buckets that consume less than 1% of the total storage. You can place your cursor over any of the chart segments to obtain more information, including the number of stored objects and total bytes for each bucket or container.
    • If a quota was set for this tenant, the Quota panel shows how much of that quota has been used and how much is still available. If no quota was set, the tenant has an unlimited quota, and an informational message is displayed. If the storage quota has been exceeded by more than 1% and by at least 1 GB, the chart shows the total quota and the excess amount.

      You can place your cursor over the Used segment to see the number of stored objects and the total bytes used. You can place your cursor over the Remaining segment to see how many bytes of storage quota are available.

      Note: A tenant's storage quota represents a logical amount (object size), not a physical amount (size on disk). ILM copies and erasure coding do not contribute to the amount of quota used. If the quota is exceeded, the tenant account cannot create new objects.
