Chapter 7 Thin Provisioning Pool Status
7.3 Settings (Thin Provisioning)
128.00 TB, 256.00 TB, 512.00 TB, 768.00 TB, 1024.00 TB
32.00 TB, 64.00 TB, 128.00 TB, 256.00 TB
The maximum pool capacity is used as a virtual logical capacity in the ETERNUS DX/AF. When the Thin
Provisioning function is enabled, the ETERNUS DX/AF allocates capacity to the physical drives
proportionate to the amount of data that is written to the virtual volume. Therefore, the actual
available capacity is limited depending on the maximum physical capacity of the drives that can be
installed in the storage system or the maximum pool capacity, whichever is smaller. For example,
when using an ETERNUS DX200F that is configured only with 800GB SSDs, the actual capacity that can
be used is approximately 16TB even if the maximum pool capacity is "32.00TB".
Total Physical Capacity
The total physical capacity [PB/TB/GB/MB] of the TPPs in the ETERNUS DX/AF is displayed.
This item is displayed only when "Enable" is selected for the Thin Provisioning function.
