Storage capacity planning can be a complex task, especially in a virtualized infrastructure. It typically involves manually creating complex spreadsheets. Storage Resource Monitor automates the collection of forecasting data so you can easily see growth rates, forecast costs and budgetary requirements, and project when capacity will be reached. In addition to simplifying storage capacity planning, SRM provides the information you need to avoid outages due to full disk errors. The centralized monitoring feature tracks performance over time to identify hot spots, peak hours, and potential outages.
Using the Capacity Dashboard (example) you can view Active Alerts, Storage Objects by Capacity, Server Volumes Capacity, Projected run out, and more:
