StorageScope Reporting - Report or query to give me what is available for use

Jump to solution

I am having a heck of a time trying to get a report that tells me what i have left in my VMAX that i can mask to a host.

I have tried query builder but i am not getting what i want.

Out VMAX has about 14 Disk_groups. most of these disk groups have devices pre-carved out, ie, unmapped devices already created. Some of the disk groups have a little free space left, but not enough to create any new devices.

so i want to know how i can get a pretty little report that shows me the devices that are masked to hosts, their total, the devices that are available to be put into a storage group (Ie unmasked devices) and their total.

I want it to include standard FBA devices, data devices if any, actual storage not thin devices or anything like that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Or that!

A symcli script would be simple...especially with perl.. check out my blog http://blog.virtualstoragezone.com for an example of meta reporting... could easily be expanded..

I don't have StorageScope installed anymore,  but in ControlCenter can't you just expand Storage -> VMAX -> Unmapped Devices?

Then drag them to properties and add them up?

Unmapped may show me what i want, but i need that in a report form. there is also a chance that there are still mapped but not masked devices which will skew the results too...

In my experience,  StorageScope is not that great with these types of things...  You have three options that I can think of.  1) Write your own Custom report 2) Pay EMC/Someone to write said report 3) Perl script or something else similar using symcli
