How to report used storage for every host on an EVA8000 ?

Hello,

Every time we add or delete storage on our EVA8000s, we have to manually maintain up to date, a table of storage allocated to every host; that management requires for internal billing purposes.

Needless to say, this is time consuming and boring. I am looking for a way to automate this reporting.

I have looked at the sssu.exe EVA scripting utility particularly the LS command and was wondering if it could do what I need ?

Does anybody had the same reporting need and successfully implemented such a script ?

Thanks

Chris

You are right, it's hard to manage that information and would be nice if a "open source" tool where available.

By now, you can consier this product:

You should be looking at using the Storage Essentials Enterprise Edition. This has all the reports you would need.

Once it's in production it's all bugs after that.

Thanks Tom,

Exactly what I was looking for, all I need now is a .xml to .xls converter and I will be able to produce a "management readable" report ;-)

Did you ever find a .xml to .xls converter to produce "management readable" reports?

I am trying to do the same thing, create reports...
I said, I AM WORKING ON IT!

Hello Scottie,

Management decided to go with Storage Essentials, so I didn't investigate much more but I remember (almost a year ago)that googling for one had turned up many opensource and other solutions.
