Is there a way to determine how much raw data is being backed up? On the License/Usage Tab, it only shows Front end capacity...
For now, it is a manual operation, noting the specific targets (in your case multiple HDID repositories) and adding up total capacity. In each repo case, you will have the full plus changed blocks. For snaps, clones or mirrors from HDS arrays that HDID manages, that would be another calculation.
This would be a special report that would require creation, showing total final resting data capacity (HDID repo and ISR copies) at various targets and also local storage (snaps, clones).
I have submitted a request to PM on this.
There's two ways I think you can obtain more information on this.
Option 1. You can generate a Session Summary Report [Reports > Session Summary] using the following criteria:
You can then scroll sideways to the "Data Transferred (MB)" column to review the amount of data transferred for any/all the sessions.
You can then Save [File > Save] the report in an html format, or you can save it as Plain Text (*.txt) for import into a spreadsheet.
Option 2. You can display the Repository Size Trend [Storage > Repository Usage] and eyeball the delta or change in the Used Repository Size between two data points. Caveats:
Hope this helps a little bit.
Hi Jonathan! Long time no talk! Hope all is well...
So unfortunately I don't believe either will work for me...
Option #1 will only show the incremental amount
Option #2 will give me raw+incremental amounts
Can we change this question to a feature request to add the actual raw capacity usage on the usage tab?
Fyi, I've socialized this topic internally to a few people for informational purposes only.
If you have any ideas to share on improving the HDIM/HDID product, I would definitely suggest reaching out to your HDS/partner sales contact. They are your best resource for understanding your business requirements or desires and transforming it into a future product release.
Thanks for sharing your interests on HDS Community.
