The datastore summary dashboard provides the health state and performance overview for the selected datastore. In addition, it shows the state of objects that can affect the datastore performance — hosts that work with the datastore and VMs whose files reside on the datastore.
Hosts State, Virtual Machines State
The charts reflect the health state of hosts that work with the datastore and VMs whose files reside on the datastore.
Every chart segment represents the number of objects in a certain state — objects with errors (red), objects with warnings (yellow) and healthy objects (green). Click a chart segment or a legend label to drill down to the list of alarms with the corresponding status for hosts or VMs.
Disk Space Usage
The chart shows the amount of available, used and provisioned disk space on the datastore.
Latest Disk Latency
The section displays the current read and write latency values as well as the average latency values for the past hour.
The list displays the latest 15 alarms for the datastore and for objects that work with this datastore. Click a link in the Source column to drill down to the list of alarms for the selected object.
For more information on working with triggered alarms, see Working with Triggered Alarms.
