How the storage capacity calculation is done in BVMS Configuration Client and VRM Monitor?
The calculation of the storage capacity is done in different way in Configuration Client and VRM Monitor:
- In BVMS Configuration Client Capacity (GB) stands for the available physical capacity of the storage, as calculated and provided by the storage vendor (for example NetApp).
- In VRM Monitor – under Target Overview – Total is listed the number of all available blocks multiplied by the size of the blocks that is by default 1GB. This calculation concerns the logical storage and depends on the way the storage is used (for example how many Luns are imported in the system).
