This workflow provides an example of how you can resolve a capacity issue.

You want to determine the possible cause of and resolution to the problem.
What you'll need
You must have the Operator, Application Administrator, or Storage Administrator role.
On the Dashboard page, you look for a “Volume Space Full” error event in the Capacity panel under the events drop-down list.
In the Capacity panel of the Dashboard page, click the name of the Volume Space Full error event.
The Event details page for the error is displayed.
From the Event details page, you can perform one or more of the following tasks:
Review the error message in the Cause field and click the suggestions under Suggested Remedial Actions to review descriptions of possible remediations.
Click the object name, in this case a volume, in the Source field to get details about the object.
Look for notes that might have been added about this event.
Add a note to the event.
Assign the event to another user.
Acknowledge the event.
Mark the event as resolved.
