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.

Procedure

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