ALARM = E00020101: EID Utilization Excessive

Error Text: The cluster 'ClusterName' utilization is 99.88%. This utilization value exceeds 95.00%.

We have a volume that is FULL provisioned to the maximum size of the volume. We did this intentionally and use the space for VSPHERE Virtual disks both thin and fully provisioned.

Since this was intentional, this alarm is redundant. Is there any way to turn it off?

I think if you change the Volume to Thin Provisioned, you would not receive the Alarm.

You will start receiving the Alarm only when the actual space utilization goes above 95%

As Thin provisioning on a P4000 SAN is like a light switch, turn it off and on all you want, volume by volume.
So no need to dread making this decision, you can change your mind anytime.

Agree, there should be a way to disable this alarm or be able to change the trigger value. We see a similar problem within CV-EVA on license capacity alarms and the EVA can't even do THP.

Are the engineers no longer thinking what/how they are implementing and how it effects daily use of their products or are they that much detached from reality??

Yes, we did not get this alarm when the volume was thing provisioned but we no longer wish to thin provision it for reasons related to Vmware performance whether real or imagined.

Since full provisioning is an option in the VSA, the alerting should be able to reflect this correctly.

I'd also like to support chadw's request... we're in exactly the same situation... and I would also prefer not to mark the disks as thin provisioned... but would rather alter the alarm, or turn it off.

Please can this ability be added sometime soon?!

Cheers,

I believe it might be implemented in the next version .. aka v9.5

I'm sure they have no intention of turning that off.

There is really no need to run FULL provisioned LUNs.  I don't understand their logic, but if you have  FULL LUN and make a snapshot, it will be a FULL snapshot as well!  Rebuilds and restripes will be faster on Thin LUNs as well.  If your only reason for using FULL is because you don't want to overprovision your SAN, you can still achieve that same result if you just don't make your thin volumes total reported size larger than your actual capacity.
