Capacity Efficiency panel

The Dashboard Capacity Efficiency panel summarizes the space savings and efficiency of the selected storage systems.

  • Clicking the title opens the Capacity Efficiency view on the Systems screen.

  • You can hover over chart segments to display the percentage of free space (space savings) and the percentage of used space.

  • Savings is the amount of unused space.

  • Used is the amount of reserved space (without RAID overhead).

  • Usable is the amount of usable space expressed as virtual size.

  • Overall compaction is the ratio of usable space to used space (usable:used). A larger ratio indicates a higher efficiency and greater space savings.
