Verifying that the Storage Node is active

After an expansion operation that adds new Storage Nodes completes, the StorageGRID system should automatically start using the new Storage Nodes. You must use the StorageGRID system to verify that the new Storage Node is active.


  1. Sign in to the Grid Manager using a supported browser.
  2. Select Nodes > Expansion Storage Node > Storage.
  3. Hover over the Storage Used - Object Data graph to view the value for Total, which is total storage used.
  4. Verify that the value of Total is increasing as you move your cursor to the right on the graph.
