HP EVA P6000 Allocated storage above warning

Total:
10870 GB

Allocated:
8817 GB

Getting a warning telling me:
"Warning alarm
level exceeded"

Can I just raise the warning level and allocate the 2 TB left fully allocating the all storage or does it need some space for its "things"?

Regards, Lars.

Set max. Occupancy Alarm to: Alarm = 100-CEILING(((("Size of Disk Group in GB x "# of Spare Disk" x 2)+5) / "GB Total RAW Capacity" ) x 100;0)

Hello,

  The quick answer to your question is yes, you can change this default alert quite easily. In Command View, simply click on the Disk Group with the alert. From there, go to the Disk Group Properties. In that page, you can change the alarm level percentage. Select the warning level/ critical level you desire and then “Save Changes”. You will then reset those alarms to the new occupancy level for the alarms to go off. However, I wouldn’t set them to 95-99% for either. EVA’s can get into trouble when they are full. Some action needs to be performed (deleting/ migrating/ moving data off of the array) if the array gets that full.
