Over-provisioned Datastores

Thin provisioning allows administrators to dedicate more datastore space to VMs than there is real physical capacity. This report helps you assess the potential impact of excessive over-provisioning of datastores on performance of your virtual environment.

  • TOP 5 Over-provisioned Datastores chart shows 5 datastores whose amount of provisioned storage space exceeds the total capacity.
  • TOP 5 Under-provisioned Datastores chart shows 5 datastores whose amount of provisioned storage space is way below the total capacity.
  • TOP 5 Datastores with Least Amount of Free Space table displays top 5 datastores that will run out of free space sooner than other datastores.
  • Details section shows tables and charts that provide information on storage space utilization and the number of days left before the specified space utilization/free space threshold will be breached. Arrows in the Out of Free Space in … (Days) column show whether the amount of free space on the datastore has increased (green arrow), decreased (red arrow) or stayed the same (blue arrow) over the previous week.

Over-provisioned Datastores Tip:

  • Click a number in the VM Count column of the TOP 5 Datastores with Least Amount of Free Space table or of the Details table to get the list of VMs that store data on the datastore and to discover how much space is provisioned for these VMs.
  • Click a number in the Out of Free Space in … (Days) column of the Details table to drill down to performance details for the datastore.
