Generate Aggregate Capacity Trending Chart For The Whole Storage

I am not sure if this is the correct forum to seek help on my issue. This is my first post.

 

I am trying to publish a dashboard summarizing the aggregates in my different storage. I tried OnCommand Report and discovered it requires login and cannot just publish the reports to a web page and allow everyone to see without authentication.

 

I finally settled with just generating a report using OnCommand and save the output in an Excel file. However I can only generate the graph for each aggregate but I am looking for ways to generate just a single graph for the total capacity of all aggregates in a storage and the used capacity of all aggregates in a storage. Basically I just want one graph.

 

Can anyone help?

Will the "aggregate capacity used vs total" graph on the home page work? Obviously in the example below the used vs. total is ridiculous. But in a real environment it would give you something to look at.

And you can schedule that report against any group level to dump a CSV or a graph on regular intervals and pick that up in your dashboard.

Hi,

 

I know how to generate the graph but the graph only applies to one aggregate. It doesn't apply to a group of aggregates right?

 

How can I automate the publishing to a web page?

Ling -

 

In OnCommand setup a "group" and then add all the aggregates of interest to that group.  Then run reports against the group to get aggregated data for the group.  

 

For the web page setup - rather than export as Excel, setup the report to actually save the graphic.  You can then reference the saved graphic in your web pages.  Establish a schedule in OnCommand to periodically update the graph on an appropriate interval.

 

As long as one of the built in graphs meets your need, this isn't really hard to get up and running.  If there isn't a built in graph that meets your need, you'd then have to run the report to export as CSV or Excel or similar and then generate a graph from outside of OnCommand.
