Datastore Overallocation due to Thin Provisioning

Veeam Logoby smendoza » Thu Feb 25, 2010 6:55 pm

I was looking at the alarms and basically, the only alarm you can setup is in regard to overall freespace. While this is a good alarm to have, it's also imperative to know if you've over allocated a datastore because of thin provisioning. Is there any way to set this up, or would this be considered a "feature" request?

I've tried setting up the alarm inside of the vCenter, but the alarm mechanism overall is buggy in that you can watch alarm go from Red -> Green and back to Red within the same second they occur. This creates a problem in the triggers.

Hello Sonny,

Thank you for your feedback. We are always interested to hear any thoughts that would help to improve our product. Yes, that's a very useful alarm and we are currently working on adding such functionality to future major release of the Monitor.

Thank you!

Hello, I was also interested in the same functionality requested by the original poster being built into nWorks - datastore overallocation. Is anyone able to give me an idea of whether or not this is being planned for a future release? Potential timeline? Thank you.

Hi Clay,

Yes, indeed - such monitoring of over-allocation of storage is planned for a nworks update in Q1 2011. Watch this space! :)

Regards,
Alec
