report: Over-Provisioned Storage?

Veeam Logoby felyjos » Tue Jul 19, 2011 10:09 pm

Hello,

I have ratio between 100% and 166% is it okay or not? the out-od Stoarge Date is not related this percentage as I have 165 with a date next month and with a date in 10years+, I think it is also link to the increasing or decrasing ration on-going isn't it?

I have a message:
Reduce storage over-provisioning by moving the following VMs off this storage:
- votfim2 (0 GB)
- votsprstr2 (0 GB)
- voexrstr1 (0 GB)
but is there are 0 GB how does it affect the Storage?

Thanks,
Dom

Hi Dom,

Yes, that's expected, because you might have provisioned more space than you actually have on the datastore. Basically, this report predicts over-provisioning of disk space on storage devices and helps you in evaluating possible virtual environment expansions.

If you already have filled-in datastores then it means that thin provisioned disks will not grow any more, that is why you should move some VMs out from this datastore.

Thanks.
