About storage reports


Storage reports contain statistics about the use of S Series storage, extended storage, and service plans over time. These reports are a good source of information for storage analysis, enabling you to monitor storage usage patterns at either the component, pool, or service plan level.

Each storage report covers one of these:

A single storage component, single storage pool, or single service plan

All storage components, all storage pools, or all service plans

All storage components, storage pools, and service plans

Storage reports do not include statistics for components and pools representing primary storage.

You generate storage reports from the HCP System Management Console. For each report, you specify the start and end dates of the report period, which is the time period covered by the report. You also specify the reporting interval, which determines whether HCP generates hourly, daily, or total values for the report period.

Storage reports contain aggregated namespace statistics for each tenant that's defined on the HCP system, including the default tenant. For example, for a given tenant and a given storage component, the number of read operations shown for a specific reporting interval is the total number of read operations that:

Targeted storage represented by the component

Occurred during the reporting interval

Targeted objects in the tenant's namespaces

Storage reports also contain aggregated tenant statistics for the HCP system as a whole. Additionally, for an HCP tenant that has granted system-level administrative access to itself, storage reports contain statistics for the individual namespaces owned by that tenant.

HCP generates storage reports in CSV format. Each line in a report contains the values for one namespace, for one tenant, or for the entire HCP system during a specific reporting interval (that is, during a specific hour, during a specific day, or during the entire report period).

Generating a storage report


When generating a storage report, you need to specify what the report is for, the report period, and the reporting interval. A report can be for one or all components, pools, or service plans or for all components, pools, and service plans.

To specify the report period, you select start and end dates. The report period starts at 12:00:00 a.m. on the start date (shown as 00:00:00) and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. on the end date.

The earliest start date you can specify is either 30 days earlier than the current date or the date when the HCP system was installed (if the system was installed less than 30 days ago). The latest end date you can specify is the current date.

You can use the same date as the start date and the end date for a report period. In this case, the report period starts at 12:00:00 a.m. on the specified date and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. on that date.

The reporting interval you select determines whether the report contains hourly, daily, or total statistics:

An hourly report contains one set of statistics for each hour in the report period for which statistics are available.

If the report period starts on the day when the HCP system was installed, the first set of statistics in the report covers the time the system first came online through the end of the last minute in that hour. For example, if the system came online at 2:30:20 p.m. on July 25th and the report period starts on July 25th, the first set of statistics in the report covers 2:30:20 p.m. through 2:59:59 p.m. on July 25th.

If the report period ends on the current day, the last set of statistics in the report covers the time from the start of the current hour to the time when you requested the report. For example, if you request an hourly report at 2:30:15 p.m., the last set of statistics in the report covers 2:00:00 p.m. through 2:30:15 p.m. on the current day.

A daily report contains one set of statistics for each day in the report period, where a day is defined as the period from 12:00:00 a.m. through 11:59:59 p.m. on a given date.

If the report period starts on the day when the HCP system was installed, the first set of statistics in the report covers the time the system first came online through the end of the last minute on that day. For example, if the system came online at 2:30:20 p.m. on July 25th and the report period starts on July 25th, the first set of statistics in the report covers 2:30:20 p.m. through 11:59:59 p.m. on July 25th.

If the report period ends on the current day, the last set of statistics in the report covers 12:00:00 a.m. on the current day to the time when you requested the report. For example, if you request a daily report at 2:30:15 p.m., the last set of statistics in the report covers 12:00:00 a.m. through 2:30:15 p.m. on the current day.

A total report contains one set of statistics for the entire report period.

If the report period starts on the day when the HCP system was installed, the statistics in the report cover the time the system first came online either through 11:59:59 p.m. on the last day of the report period or through the time when you requested the report on the currrent day.

For example, if the system came online at 2:30:20 p.m. on July 25th and, at 2:50:25 p.m. on August 7th, you request a total report with a start date of July 25th and an end date of August 7th, the statistics in the report cover 2:30:20 p.m. on July 25th through 2:50:25 p.m. on August 7th.

Storage report content


The first line of a storage report contains identifiers for the values in the subsequent lines. The table below describes each of these values.

Identifier

Value

bytesRead

For a storage component or storage pool, the total number of bytes of data read from storage represented by the component or pool during the reporting interval, where the requested object was in the given namespace, any of the namespaces owned by the given tenant, or any of the HCP namespaces in the HCP system.

For a service plan, the number of bytes of data read from S Series and extended storage, where the requested object was on that storage due to the service plan and was in the given namespace, any of the namespaces owned by the given tenant, or any of the HCP namespaces in the HCP system.

bytesWritten

For a storage component or storage pool, the number of bytes of data written to storage represented by the component or pool during the reporting interval, where the writes targeted the given namespace, any of the namespaces owned by the given tenant, or any of the HCP namespaces in the HCP system.

For a service plan, the number of bytes of data written to S Series and extended storage due to the service plan during the reporting interval, where the writes targeted the given namespace, any of the namespaces owned by the given tenant, or any of the HCP namespaces in the HCP system.

For S Series storage, this number includes:

Bytes written both with the targeted storage included in the ingest tier and with the targeted storage included in a non-ingest tier.

Bytes written for all parts of multipart uploads regardless of whether the upload of the part has finished, the part was subsequently replaced, the multipart upload was aborted, or the part was not used in the completed multipart upload.

deleted

One of:

true — The namespace or tenant was deleted after the statistics in the set were collected.

false — The namespace or tenant currently exists.

included — For a tenant or the HCP system, the statistics in the set include values for one or more namespaces that were subsequently deleted.

deletes

For a storage component or storage pool, the number of successful delete operations that targeted storage represented by the component or pool during the reporting interval, where the deleted object was in the given namespace, any of the namespaces owned by the given tenant, or any of the HCP namespaces in the HCP system.

For a service plan, the number of successful delete operations that targeted S Series and extended storage due to the service plan during the reporting interval, where the deleted object was on that storage due to the service plan and was in the given namespace, any of the namespaces owned by the given tenant, or any of the HCP namespaces in the HCP system.

A delete of a multipart object counts as a single delete operation.

endTime

The end time of the reporting interval for the set of statistics in the line, in the same format as is used for the startTime value.

namespaceName

The name of the namespace to which the set of statistics in the line applies.

In lines that contain tenant or systemwide statistics, this field has no value.

reads

For a storage component or storage pool, the number of read operations that targeted storage represented by the component or pool during the reporting interval, where the requested object was in the given namespace, any of the namespaces owned by the given tenant, or any of the HCP namespaces in the HCP system.

For a service plan, the number of read operations that successfully retrieved data from S Series or extended storage during the reporting interval, where the requested object was on that storage due to the service plan and was in the given namespace, any of the namespaces owned by the given tenant, or any of the HCP namespaces in the HCP system.

Each read of a part of a multipart object counts as a separate read operation.

startTime

The start time of the reporting interval for the set of statistics in the line, in this format:

yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss

hh is hours on a 24-hour clock.

For example: 2017-10-07 14:32:47

systemName

One of:

The name of the domain associated with the data access network for the tenant that owns the namespace to which the set of statistics in the line applies

The name of the domain associated with the data access network for the tenant to which the set of aggregated statistics in the line applies

The name of the domain associated with the [hcp_system] network for the HCP system to which the set of aggregated statistics in the line applies

For information on networks, see About virtual networking with HCP.

target The storage component, storage pool, or service plan to which the set of statistics in the line applies.
tenantName

Either:

The name of the tenant that owns the namespace to which the set of statistics in the line applies

The name of the tenant to which the set of statistics in the line applies

In lines that contain systemwide statistics, this field has no value.

valid

The status of the set of statistics in the line. Possible values are:

true — HCP successfully collected all statistics in the set.

false — The statistics in the set do not reflect all the activity that occurred during the reporting interval. This may be due, for example, to one or more nodes being unavailable during that time, to a network failure, or to other hardware issues.

writes

For a storage component or storage pool, the number of successful write operations that targeted storage represented by the component or pool during the reporting interval, where the data was written to the given namespace, any of the namespaces owned by the given tenant, or any of the HCP namespaces in the HCP system.

For a service plan, the number of successful write operations that targeted S Series and extended storage due to the service plan during the reporting interval, where the data was written to the given namespace, any of the namespaces owned by the given tenant, or any of the HCP namespaces in the HCP system.

Each write of a part of a multipart object counts as a separate write operation.

For S Series storage:

This number includes write operations both with the targeted storage included in the ingest tier and with the targeted storage included in a non-ingest tier.

Each write of a part of a multipart upload counts as a separate write operation. This applies even if the part was subsequently replaced, the multipart upload was aborted, or the part was not used in the completed multipart upload.

Sample storage report


Here's an example of a daily storage report for the Amazon-Comp-1 component, where the report period is March 5, 2018, through March 6, 2018, and the report was requested at 11:55 a.m. on March 6th. The report shows statistics for the canada and europe tenants. Because system-level users have administrative access to the europe tenant, the report also shows statistics for the individual namespaces owned by the europe tenant. The report is shown as it would appear in a spreadsheet.
