EMC Unity reporting compression in OCI?

GauteA

For EMC Unity 300/400 models with compression enabled on storage pool - is OCI capable of reporting either; 

- achieved compression in % of storage pool allocated

- consumed volumes after compression

Hey Gaute,

 

You didn't flag your post with the "Insight" label, so I didn't get an email notification about this post - a lot of the OCI people are only "following" the Insight label

 

OCI is going to run

 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\EMC\Unisphere CLI\uemcli.exe" -d unity.hostname.goes.here -u OCI -p OCIisSweet! -sslPolicy accept /stor/config/pool  show -detail

 

And report for each storage pool what the compression savings are

 

OCI is not reporting per individual volume compression savings - generally speaking, traditional storage arrays' per volume compression features have not been adopted by users, and OCI doesn't report per volume compression as a result. Most all flash arrays have pervasive, always on compression, and OCI tends to capture those arrays' compression at the storage pool level.
