Checking Storage Pools

Checking Storage Pools

A storage pool is a logical disk group consisting of independent physical disks. It provides higher storage performance and redundancy than a single disk. You can learn about the health and running status of a storage pool by checking its status information on the DeviceManager.

Impact on the System

A faulty or degraded storage pool may impair read/write performance, disrupt services, and cause data loss on the storage device.

Reference Standard

If storage pools are working properly, the following items are true on the DeviceManager:
  • All of the storage pools are in the Normal health status and Online running status.
  • No storage pool alarm appears on the Current Alarms tab page.




  1. On the navigation bar of the DeviceManager, click Provisioning.
  2. In the function pane, click Storage Pool.

    The Storage Pool page is displayed.

  3. On the Storage Pool page, view the information about the desired storage pool.

    Table 9-26 describes associated status parameters.
