Report for historical usage of Storage Pools

Hello,

I have a VNX5500 system and i am wondering if i can create reports which could show the usage of Storage Pools in previous years.

For example is there a way to find out what was the disk usage of my Storage Pools in 2013 so that i can compare with the current disk usage?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Tuccero,

Yes you can find out the disk usage of Storage Pool in 2013 , if you have logs or spcollects of 2013.

Thanks

Hi Jyothi,

So this is the only way i can find this information?

Because this means that i can only send the SP Collects to EMC and ask them to retrieve this data for me.

Thank you

I know it's not much help to you now, but this is where Unisphere Central is useful, logging Performance and Space utilization metrics for up to 2 Yrs rolling.

Re: Report for historical usage of Storage Pools

Just a though - if you have opened case with EMC that involved the array and that also involved uploading spcollects for that case, some of those old spcollects may still be attached to those old cases - some cases may be too old as the files attached are deleted after a certain time frame. EMC typically does not keep case attachments older than a couple of years.
