Error reporting Disk Group occupancy in Command View
So this is an error / issue we’ve had to live with for some time. It’s a bit strange to be sure. Essentially in Command View, the Disk Group occupancy is completely incorrect, and continues to grow. Yes, that’s right, I said grow. For some photo-visual enjoyment, here is what a NORMAL Disk Group looks like.
So as you can see, we have a total Capacity (which is correct and accurate), and the Occupancy. The information listed is correct, and it’s refreshing. Now, for the problematic Disk Group (and please ignore the name as it was before my time).
Here we see the correctly calculated Capacity, but lo! What’s this? What on earth is going on with that Occupancy? It seemingly continues to grow a bit here and there as we take snapshots of various. HP doesn’t know what’s wrong either. When we upgrade from Command View 9.0 to 9.1, it did not fix the issue either. The big problem here is that we have to figure out how much space is actually used since we’ll never get alerted. It is a pain. I can turn to Replication Solutions Manager to obtain the correct size by simply adding all the luns (easy way to view them, as opposed to Command View), so that’s the workaround. Not very satisfying if you consider how much money was spent on these beasts.
