I can see the disk usage per VM in the Monitor application however what I am ultimately after is the total usage of all the volumes together. I look forward to hopefully seeing this be available in v9.

Indeed, the report is going to be one of the v9 features.
Thanks!

I have just upgraded to v9 but can't seem to find the disk usage report. I hope this did make it into v9...

Thanks for reminding us to update the topic!
Guest Disk Free Space is what we were talking about. Usage of VM volumes can be found in drill-down of a particular VM.
Thanks!

Used space is shown there on the graph. Have you checked it?

This looks to be only for used space growth though. I'm looking for the real time total used disk space of a VM.

How can I export the data used to create the graph? Or maybe split it into Guest Disk partitions?

Thanks

To get the raw data, you can generate VMware Raw Performance Data report with deisred parameters (Object Type=VM, Monitor Subsystems=Guest Disk, Metrics=Guest Disk: Guest Disk Usage).

Thanks for the info, but you can't see the info per disk, only a total used size whereas the chart shows it per disk.

You can save Guest Disk Free Space report in .xlsx format to get the current data of those partitions, historical raw data about partitions is not currently available, but we can provide it in future versions.
Could you describe your case why the data is needed?
Thanks!

I usually need a per disk statistic for our file servers. There are some times when they quickly grow and find out that this happened later in the future.

Having multiple disks per VM makes it difficult to pinpoint which disk has actually grown and when. After finding the culprit we have a better chance of finding the cause (usually user carelessness).

Thanks for the clarification!
We are going to provide raw data for each volume, but looks like mentioned Guest Disk Free Space report fits you better since it analyses trends and shows you volumes(partitions) which are running out of space soon.

It does and it doesn't. Although we can see per disk trends, we still don't know when the increase happened. If accessing the individual VM from the report we can see the chart but timeline is to wide to actually find a specific date.

One question though, if Veeam ONE is able to create a chart for individual guest disks, how can I access the raw source data that it uses to create it?

PS: Exporting to excel is the same as the web version, no additional information included.
