Snapshot size

In the cmc before version 9.0 it was possible to see how much disk space a snapshot is using. Since CMC HP decided not to provide this info anymore. Does anyone know a way to report snapshot sizes? Maybe with cliq?

Re: Snapshot size

I believe that 9.5 address this issue somewhat. I also think someone here posted a note on how to obtain the size with CLIQ. You can also get the snapshot size by looking at the mgrClientBinMon.log file. Run the diagnostics then save the log file and do  a search for your snaphot. If that doesnt work for you simply look at the total volume size and minus the actual volume size.

Re: Snapshot size

Looking at mgrClientBinMon.log works great. That file contains the real values the snaps are using.. great..thanks.

 

I also will look for the note on using CLIQ (didn't find one before however).

Total volume size minus actual volume size works for thick provisioned volumes but it won't for thin provisioned volumes.

 

I don't get the reason of HP to remove the snapshot sizes from the CMC since 9.0..

Oh well maybe its not worth replying to this community.

Very, very discouraging.
