Hi Cássio,

Welcome to Veeam Community Forums!

What exactly you'd like to monitor in regards to LUNs occupation?

Thanks

Hello,

I need to track the occupancy of some luns that are assigned to virtualization hosts. And then shared by the different mapping slices.

Thanks,

Cássio Pinheiro

Could you please let us know what meaning do you put into "LUN occupation"?

Hi,

LUN OCCUPATION = Volume of occupied or free area in bits / percentage
meaning LUN: disk storage area assigned to a virtual server, to then be sliced between virtual machines.

but it would be nice to collect transfer fees, etc ...

Hello,

If you select a host or a cluster in the inventory pane of Veeam ONE Client, you can view high-level information about storage capacity and space consumption on the Summary tab, then you may switch to the Datastore tab to view details including IOps and so on. Also, you may right-click on a host/cluster, select Reports, select Datastore, then generate the desired report. I would suggest having a look at the Datastore Capacity, Datastore Configuration, and Datastore Space Usage History reports - it should be a good starting point.

Thanks

Thanks.

But ... see the explanation below. And based on it, would you know if you have how?

It is necessary to monitor the LUN (Logical Unit Number) of the hosts that are part of the Hyper-V Cluster.

In Hyper-V we need to monitor the CSV.

CSVs (Clustered Shared Volumes) enable multiple nodes in a failover cluster to have read and write access simultaneously to the LUN (logical unit number), or disk, provisioned as an NTFS volume (New Technology File System). (In Windows Server 2012 R2, the disk can be provisioned as NTFS or ReFS (resilient file system).)
CSV provides a general purpose clustered file system, which is layered above NTFS (or ReFS in Windows Server 2012 R2). CSV applications include:

Thanks for sharing the details. Good to know the question is about Hyper-V.

It does not significantly differ from what I mentioned above for vSphere. For Hyper-V, you can do near the same for CSVs, by navigating through the Hyper-V cluster and CSV nodes on the inventory pane and generating desired reports.
