SAN Disk space

Hi'

 

I have eva4400 san and its has 36 harddisk 146*36=5256

 

But EVA software Shown

 

   
This storage system is 84% allocated

Total: 4642 GB  Allocated: 3894 GB  Allocation level: 84 %   Available: 747 GB  Requested: 0 GB  Oversubscribed:  

 

total 4642 

 

but its actual 5256

 

Why its shown 4642 ?

I know its raid configure

 

So,

What is a formula to get this value 4642 ?

 

 

 

and how to see disk utilization graph value ?

 

 

 

 

Thanks

Aamir

Re: SAN Disk space

I'm sure you set the protection level of the diskgroup to "double" - this reserves the space of 4 disks.

 

From online help:

 

Disk failure protection levels

The disk failure protection level determines the amount of storage space that is reserved in a disk group for data reconstruction if physical disks in the group fail. The reserved space is not a number of physical disks. It is the equivalent amount of storage space spread across all disks in the disk group. The disk failure protection levels are:

  • Single failure protection. Reserves space within a disk group for data reconstruction if 1 disk fails. The disk group can lose 1 physical disk and maintain the redundancy (Vraid) levels in the group.

  • Double failure protection. Reserves space within a disk group for data reconstructions if 2 disks fail. The disk group can tolerate the loss of 2 physical disk and maintain the redundancy (Vraid) levels in the group.

    None. Reserves no space within a disk group for data reconstruction in case a disk fails. The disk group cannot tolerate the loss of any physical disks and maintain the redundancy (Vraid) levels in the group.

   
 

IMPORTANT: HP recommends the use of single or double protection rather than None.


Hope this helps!

This is reserved space, not available for storing data, just used for data recovery if a disk fails.

It does NOT mean 2 disks can fail at the same time. To protect this case, create a vraid6.

Hope this helps!
