Namespace URL


The top of the namespace Overview panel shows the URL for access to the namespace content through the HTTP protocol. If the HTTP protocol is enabled for the namespace, this URL is a link that opens the Namespace Browser for the namespace.

A namespace URL has this format:

https://namespace-url-name.tenant-url-name.hcp-domain-name

For example, the URL for access to the content of the Accounts-Receivable namespace owned by the Finance tenant in the HCP system named hcp‑ma.example.com is:

https://accounts-receivable.finance.hcp‑ma.example.com

If SSL security is not enabled for the HTTP protocol, the URL contains http instead of https.

For information on enabling or disabling HTTP and SSL security, see Configuring the REST, S3 compatible, HSwift, and WebDAV APIs. For information on the Namespace Browser, see Using a Namespace.

Note: The HCP domain name used for access to namespace content may not be the same as the domain name used for access to the tenant for management purposes. Be sure to give your namespace users the correct domain name.

Similarly, the IP addresses for the system may differ for these two purposes. For the IP addresses to use for namespace access, contact your HCP system administrator.

Namespace owner


The top right corner of the namespace Overview panel shows the namespace owner if the namespace has an owner:

If the owner user account is an HCP account, the panel shows the account username.

If the user account for the owner of a namespace is deleted, the namespace reverts to having no owner.

If the owner user account is an AD account and:

oHCP can retrieve the user account information from AD, the panel shows the account username along with the name of the AD domain in which the account is defined, in this format: username@ad-domain-name

oHCP cannot retrieve the user account information from AD, the panel shows the SID for the user account. This can happen if the AD user account was deleted or if HCP cannot communicate with AD.

In either case, the username or SID is a link that you can use to change the namespace owner. If the namespace has no owner, the top right corner of the panel shows the Modify Owner link, which you can use to assign an owner to the namespace.

For information on changing the owner of a namespace, see Changing the namespace owner.

Objects section


The Objects section in the namespace Overview panel contains a graph showing the number of objects in the namespace during the past 30 days (or since the namespace was created if that was less than 30 days ago).

Each version of an object counts as a separate object. However, the object count does not include object versions that are delete markers.

Each multipart object counts as a single object. Objects that are in the process of being created by multipart uploads are not included in the object count.

While any of the search facilities is selected for use with the Search Console, the graph also shows the total number of indexed objects in the namespace during the past 30 days. For any point in time for which the indexed object count is shown, the count reflects the index maintained by the search facility that was selected for the Search Console at that time.

NoteWebHelp.png

Notes: 

If the HDDS search facility is selected for use with the Search Console, the graph shows the number of indexed objects only if that facility is configured to show statistics.

For any period during which HCP cannot retrieve statistics from the HDDS server (for example, because the network connection is broken), the graph shows the number of indexed objects as zero.

The x‑axis in the Objects graph marks the passage of time. The y-axis marks the number of objects. As the number of objects increases, the intervals on the y-axis get larger. The section heading indicates the current measurement unit (for example, thousands or millions).

The graph legend shows the most recent value for the number of objects stored (Ingested object count) and, if applicable, the number of indexed objects (Indexed object count).

Below the Usage section, which is below the Objects section, the Overview panel shows the date and time the Objects and Usage sections were last updated. To show the most current information in these sections, click on Refresh Now.

Usage section


The Usage section in the namespace Overview panel contains a graph showing information about the namespace storage during the past 30 days (or since the namespace was created if that was less than 30 days ago).

The x-axis in the Usage graph marks the passage of time. The y-axis measures the amount of storage in gigabytes, terabytes, or petabytes, depending on the namespace size. The graph heading indicates the current measurement unit (gigabytes (GB), terabytes (TB), or petabytes (PB)).

The Usage graph shows:

Total storage capacity — The hard quota for the namespace. For information on the hard quota, see Storage quotas.

Used storage capacity — The total amount of storage space currently occupied by all data stored in the namespace, including object data, metadata (except ACLs), and any redundant data required to satisfy the namespace service plan. For information on DPL, see Data protection level.

Used storage includes storage occupied by the parts of in-progress multipart uploads that have already been written to the namespace. Used storage does not include replaced parts of multipart uploads, parts uploaded for aborted multipart uploads, or unused parts of completed multipart uploads. For information on multipart uploads, see Working with multipart uploads.

NoteWebHelp.png

Note: Replaced parts, parts of aborted multipart uploads, and parts not included in completed multipart uploads are deleted automatically but not necessarily immediately.

Ingested volume — The total size of the stored data and custom metadata before it was added to the namespace. This value tells you how much data you have stored.

The graph legend shows the current value for each item.

Below the Usage section, the Overview panel shows the date and time the Objects and Usage sections were last updated. To show the most current information in these sections, click on Refresh Now.

Major namespace events


The Major Events section in the namespace Overview panel lists log messages about major events related to the namespace (for example, the amount of storage used by the namespace exceeds the namespace soft quota). The list includes all such messages that have occurred since the namespace was created.

The list of messages in the Major Events section is a subset of the messages in the event log for the namespace. You can view all the messages in the namespace event log in the All Events panel for the namespace. For more information on the namespace All Events panel, see Viewing the complete namespace event log.

For a description of the information provided by each log message, see Understanding log messages. For information on the messages that can appear in the namespace log and how to respond to them, see Tenant log messages.

By default, the messages in the Major Events section are listed ten at a time in reverse chronological order. For information on managing the message display, see Managing the message list.

If the Overview panel shows alerts instead of log messages, click on the Major Events tab to display the log messages. For information on the alerts display, see Namespace alerts.

Namespace alerts


The Alerts section in the namespace Overview panel shows alerts that indicate namespace-related conditions that may require human intervention (for example, the namespace is running low on unused space). This section is visible only if alerts currently exist for the namespace.

Each alert is represented by an icon accompanied by descriptive text. For information on the alerts that can appear in the Alerts section, see Namespaces Overview panel alerts.

If the Overview panel shows log messages instead of alerts, click on the Alerts tab to display the alerts. For information on the log message display, see Major namespace events.

Namespace features


The Overview panel for a namespace shows which of these features are currently enabled for the namespace:

Replication — If this feature is present, the namespace is included in replication of its owning tenant. If this feature is not present, the namespace is not included in replication of its owning tenant.

For information on this feature, see Replication. For information on selecting and deselecting namespaces for replication, see Selecting or deselecting namespaces for replication.

Search — If this feature is present, search is currently enabled for the namespace. The namespace is searchable if its effective permission mask includes search. If this feature is not present, the namespace is not searchable.

For information on this feature, see Managing search and indexing. For information on the effective permission mask for a namespace, see Data access permission masks.

Versioning — If this feature is present, users and applications can create multiple versions of objects in the namespace. If this feature is not present, the namespace does not support versioning.

For information on this feature, see Versioning. For information on enabling or disabling versioning for a namespace, see Configuring object versioning.

Additionally, the Overview panel shows:

The service plan in effect for the namespace. This feature is present only if the tenant is allowed to associate service plans with namespaces. For information on service plans, see Service plans.

The retention mode of the namespace. This is either enterprise or compliance. For information on enterprise and compliance modes, see Retention mode.

The cryptographic hash algorithm for the namespace. For more information on this, see Cryptographic hash algorithm.

The DPL for the namespace. For more information on this, see Data protection level.
