Report Output

The Virtual Infrastructure Described table will provide an overview for the storage included in the report scope: total number of storage volumes and storage devices, total storage volume capacity and total storage device capacity (in GB).

The Performance Forecast Analysis and Recommendations table will provide details and recommendations for the resource which utilization threshold will be breached first within the forecast period.

Report Output

In this example, only one volume is reported to run out of free space. The number of Days Left shows 0, which means that the volume will not be able to sustain the current workload. The Recommendation section provides practical recommendations for maintaining the resource usage within the desired threshold.

The performance forecast tables reveal whether the specified threshold will be breached and detail the following forecasted values (all values are provided for both the best-case and the worst-case scenarios):

  • Days Left: number of days after which the free space threshold will be breached
  • Metric Forecast: predicted metric value at the end of the forecast period
  • Available resources: amount of resources that will remain unused on the forecast horizon date (available resources, calculated as the difference between the threshold and the predicted resource usage)

You can expand the table rows to open charts detailing actual free space value, calculated utilization trend and its deviation, resource capacity and the threshold.

In this example, the Newsmb volume is forecasted to run low on free space. The number of Days Left shows 0, which means that the amount of free space is already less than the threshold of 30%.
