|A blank chart indicates that there was no data available in your environment at that data collection point.|
You can click the toggle button Show Current Usage to view the consumption, burst usage, and accrual burst data for the current billing period. These details are not based on the date range of the query.
Current Consumed: Indicator for the consumed capacity (in TiB) defined for the service level. This field uses specific colors:
No color: Burst or above burst usage.
Grey: No usage.
Green: Within 80% of the committed capacity.
Amber: 80% of the committed to the burst capacity.
Current Burst: Indicator for the consumed capacity within or above the defined burst limit. Any usage within the burst limit for your subscription, for example, 20% above the committed capacity is within the burst limit. Further usage is considered as usage above the burst limit. This field displays specific colors:
No color: No burst usage.
Red: Burst usage.
Purple: Above the burst limit.
Accrued burst: Indicator for the accrued burst usage or consumed capacity calculated per month for the current billing period. The accrued burst usage is calculated based on the committed and consumed capacity for a service level:
(consumed - committed)/365.25/12.

Reference charts for advanced data protection
If you have subscribed to the advanced data protection add-on service, you can view the breakup of the consumption data for the MetroCluster partner sites on the Capacity Trend tab.
For information about advanced data protection add-on service, see Advanced data protection.
If the clusters in your ONTAP storage environment are configured in a MetroCluster setup, the consumption data of your Keystone subscription is split in the same historical data chart to display the consumption at the primary and mirror sites for the base service levels.
|The consumption bar charts are split for only the base service levels. For advanced data protection add-on service, that is the Advanced Data-Protect service level, this demarcation does not appear.|
For the Advanced Data-Protect service level, the total consumption is split between the partner sites, and the usage at each partner site is reflected and billed in a separate subscription; one subscription for the primary site, and another for the mirror site. That is the reason why, when you select the subscription number for the primary site on the Capacity Trend tab, the consumption charts for the advanced data protection add-on service display the discrete consumption details of only the primary site. Because each partner site in a MetroCluster configuration acts both as a source and mirror, the total consumption at each site includes the source and the mirror volumes created at that site.
|The tooltip next to the tracking ID of your subscription in the Current Usage tab helps you identify the partner subscription in the MetroCluster setup.|
For the base service levels, each volume is charged as provisioned at the primary and mirror sites, and hence the same bar chart is split according to the consumption at the primary and mirror sites.
The following image displays the charts for the Extreme service level (base service level) and a primary subscription number. The same historical data chart also indicates the mirror site consumption in a lighter shade of the same color code used for the primary site. The tooltip on mouse hover displays the consumption breakup (in TiB) for the primary and mirror sites, 1.02 TiB and 1.05 TiB respectively.
For the Advanced Data-Protect service level, the charts appear like this:
When you check the secondary subscription, you can see that the bar chart for the Extreme service level (base service level) at the same data collection point as the partner site is reversed, and the consumption breakup at the primary and mirror sites is 1.05 TiB and 1.02 TiB respectively.
For the Advanced Data-Protect service level, the chart appears like this for the same collection point as at the partner site:

The retrieved details are based on the service level objective for each service level. For example, the peak IOPS, maximum throughput, target latency, and other metrics are determined by the individual settings for the service level. For more information about the settings, see Service levels in Keystone.
|If you select the SLO Reference Line check box, the IOPS, throughput, and latency graphs are rendered based on the service level objective for the service level. Else, they are displayed in actual numbers.|
The performance data displayed on the horizontal graph is an average at every five-minute interval, and arranged as per the date range of the query. You can scroll across the graphs and hover your mouse over specific data points to drill further down into the collected data.
You can view and compare the performance metrics in the following sections based on the combination of the subscription number, volume name, and the date range selected. The details are displayed as per service level assigned to the volume. You can see the cluster name and volume type, that is, the read and write permissions assigned to the volume. Any warning message associated with the volume is also displayed.
This section displays the input-output graphs for the workloads in the volume based on the date range of the query. The peak IOPS for the service level and the current IOPS (in the last five minutes, not based on the date range of the query) are displayed, along with the minimum, maximum, and average IOPS for the time range, in IOPS/TiB.
This section displays the throughput graphs for the workloads in the volume based on the date range of the query. The maximum throughput for the service level (SLO Max), and current throughput (in the last five minutes, not based on the date range of the query) are displayed, along with the minimum, maximum, and average throughput for the time range, in MBps/TiB.
This section displays the latency graphs for the workloads in the volume based on the date range of the query. The maximum latency for service level (SLO Target), and current latency (in the last five minutes, not based on the date range of the query) are displayed, along with the minimum, maximum, and average latency for the time range, in milliseconds.
This graph has the following colors:
Light blue: Latency. This is the actual latency that includes any latency other than your Keystone service. This might include additional latency, such as the latency occurring between your network and client.
Dark blue: Effective latency. Effective latency is the latency applicable only to your Keystone service with respect to your SLA.
Logical Used (TiB)
This section displays the provisioned and the logical used capacities of the volume. The current logical used capacity (in the last five minutes, not based on the date range of the query), along with the minimum, maximum, and average usage for the time range are displayed in TiBs. On this graph, the grey area represents the committed capacity, and the yellow graph indicates the logical use.
You can generate and view reports for your subscription details, historical usage data for a time range, and volume details from each of the tabs by clicking the download button:
The details are generated in CSV format that you can save for future use.
