Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if:

  • you notice data gaps for some metrics.
  • you need the Disk revolutions per minute information.
  • you notice inconsistencies for the ST_CAPACITY, ST_AVAILABLE_FOR_STORAGE_POOLS, ST_SYSTEM_SUBSCRIBED_CAPACITY, and ST_POOL_SUBSCRIBED_CAPACITY metrics.

What does it fix?

This patch offers the following changes, improvements and fixes:

  • Data gaps could be observed when the timestamp and duration were not correct for some samples. The timestamp and duration are now properly computed.
  • The BYDISK_RPM metric was added to the SYSDSK dataset to expose the disk revolutions per minute.
  • The computation methods were reviewed for the following metrics:
    • ST_CAPACITY: for the storage center, it corresponds to the storage space that is both used and available to create Disk Folders or Volumes; for disk folders, it corresponds to storage space that is both used and available to create volumes.
    • ST_AVAILABLE_FOR_STORAGE_POOLS: it exposes the capacity that is still available after creating the storage pools.
    • ST_SYSTEM_SUBSCRIBED_CAPACITY: it corresponds to the sum of the capacity of all mapped volumes.
    • ST_POOL_SUBSCRIBED_CAPACITY: it corresponds to the sum of the capacity of all the associated mapped volumes.
