Feature Request Nimble Storage: Display individual snapshot size

Since moving from NimbleOS 3.x to 4.x, I've noticed we can no longer see individual snapshot sizes under the volume data protection tab.  This is a critical piece of information we frequently need.  Is there any other way to get this info, even from the command line?  Would like to see this information added back in ASAP please.  Thanks!

Re: Feature Request Nimble Storage: Display individual snapshot size

Hi

The Nimble UI has never shown the size of an individual snapshot.

In the previous GUI the capacties shown were the amount of new data written to the volume once the snapshot was taken.

This was quite misleading for customers, therefore we removed this in the new UI ,and now show the collective amount of capacity consumed by the snapshots in the UI.

If you want to see the "new data" figures, then you can get this in the CLI. But note - this is not how big your snapshots are, due to the way snapshots share blocks between them.
