Storage Report Management Introduction

Storage Report Management Introduction

This section describes the functions and application scenarios of storage report management.


eSight provides storage reports including the capacity reports, performance reports, and customized reports. Users can intuitively view the health status and capacity usage of storage devices, shorten maintenance time, reduce O&M costs, and improve storage utilization.


eSight storage reports are classified into capacity reports, performance reports, and customized reports.

Capacity reports and performance reports are static reports. Different types of resources related to capacity or performance are centrally displayed in the same report from different dimensions. Customized reports allow you to combine capacity or performance indicators from different dimensions based on the site requirements.

Capacity Reports

Storage capacity reports provide the following functions:

  • Query the device capacity. The reports display the device capacity usage, usage trend, and capacity trend in the last three months.
  • Predict the capacity. The reports predict storage capacity based on historical capacity data.
  • Provide capacity expansion suggestions. The reports allow users to configure the storage capacity threshold and provides capacity expansion suggestions when the capacity usage exceeds the threshold.

Performance Reports

Storage performance reports provide the following functions:

  • Collect statistics on KPIs. The reports display the KPI trend chart of devices, and collect and analyze KPIs.
  • Customize period-to-period comparison. The performance indicator trend chart supports period-to-period comparison by customized period.
  • Select an area on the chart. Users can select a time range on the performance indicator trend chart to zoom in on the data.

Customized Reports

Customized reports provide the following functions:

  • Provide predefined maintenance analysis reports. The predefined reports include the enterprise storage capacity report, host capacity report, and resource capacity report.
  • Customize reports in drag-and-drop mode. Users can customize a predefined report or create a report.
  • Automatically and periodically generate reports. Users can create scheduled tasks to generate reports periodically and automatically.

Periodic Report Export

Users can configure to export customized reports and dashboards at scheduled time.

Application Restrictions

  • The storage report function can be used only after the storage device management and storage report components are installed.
  • Currently, the storage report function does not support the DST function. For example, in a period of time when the DST starts or ends, data is incorrect in the curve chart in the storage performance report.
  • In the capacity usage trend chart, the prediction can be performed only when historical data generated in three or more days is available. If historical data in less than 90 days is available, the historical data and prediction data are displayed in 1:1 mode. If historical data in more than 90 days is available, prediction data of the next 90 days can be displayed.
  • Customized reports and dashboards can be automatically and periodically exported. Static reports cannot be automatically and periodically exported.
