Dear Exports,

I'm trying to find the RAW Capacity of our VNX.
I can see the Pools capacity via Storage Pools Summary - Storage - Storage Config - Storage Pools, but I want to see Totals together for RAW and Usage able (including all Pools and CIFs)

If it is even possible

I'm curious as to why you care what the raw storage is? It's a largely  irrelevant number as you can't store anything there.

The pie chart on the home page shows you allocated, unallocated and available space - those *are* important numbers.

Solar Winds has some good monitoring tools that are worth taking a look at.

@duncan, that was my feeling, whatever the RAW capacity, its irrelevant. EMC probably don't make it easy to find out as that would show off how bad the utilisation is!

@jack, make sure you dont get caught in the 1000x1000, 1024x1024 trap when comparing numbers (approx 7% different)
