In the HCP System Management Console, you can monitor the status and usage of storage components, storage pools, buckets, containers, mount points, and service plans.

Several System Management Console pages and reports display storage status and usage information:

  • The Storage Overview shows storage and service plan usage statistics in various formats.
  • The details pages for these items show overall usage statistics for the applicable component or pool:
    • Primary running storage component
    • Primary running storage pool
    • Primary spindown storage component
    • Primary spindown storage pool
  • The Storage Components page lists all storage components and shows status and high-level usage information for them.
  • The details page for an HCP S Series or extended storage component shows detailed usage information for that component.
  • The Storage Pools page lists all storage pools and shows status and high-level usage information for them.
  • The details page for an S Series or extended storage pool shows detailed usage statistics for that pool.
  • The Storage Service Plans page lists all service plans and shows status and high-level usage information for them.
  • The details page for a service plan shows detailed usage information for that service plan.
  • The Storage Reports page lets you generate reports that show current and historical usage statistics for storage components, storage pools, and service plans.

About the storage Overview page

The storage Overview page provides a high-level view of storage component, storage pool, and service plan usage. To display this page, in the top-level menu of the HCP System Management Console, click Storage.

The top part of the storage Overview page has these sections:

  • Extended and S Series Storage Statistics

    Shows:

    • The total number of objects and object parts stored on HCP S Series or extended storage. This number includes objects that are in the process of being created by multipart uploads.
    • The total number of bytes used to store objects and object parts on HCP S Series or extended storage. This number includes the parts of in-progress multipart uploads that have already been written to primary running storage or HCP S Series storage, as applicable. This number does not include replaced parts of multipart uploads, parts uploaded for aborted multipart uploads, or unused parts of completed multipart uploads.
  • Erasure Coding Statistics

    Shows the total number of erasure-coded objects and object parts stored on the HCP system

  • Metadata-only Statistics

    Shows:

    • The total number of objects for which the HCP system stores only metadata.
    • The total number of bytes not used for storing data for metadata-only objects. This number does not take compression or duplicate elimination into consideration.

      If you have an active/active replication link, the metadata-only statistics fluctuate during object replication.

The Component Usage By Capacity section of the storage Overview page contains:

  • A bar graph showing the number of bytes used to store objects on storage represented by each storage component defined on the HCP system. Hover over a bar to see the name of the applicable component and the number of used bytes for that component.

        A user retired the component. All objects have been moved off the storage represented by the component.

      • Retiring

        A user retired the component. HCP is in the process of moving objects off the storage represented by the component.

    • Usage

      The number of bytes currently used to store objects, parts of multipart objects, chunks for erasure-coded objects, and chunks for erasure-coded parts of objects on storage represented by the component.

      For primary running and HCP S Series storage components, the number of bytes includes storage occupied by the parts of in-progress multipart uploads that have already been written to storage represented by the component. The number of bytes does not include storage occupied by replaced parts of multipart uploads, parts uploaded for aborted multipart uploads, or unused parts of completed multipart uploads.

      NoteFor an NFS storage component, the number of bytes shown is the total number of bytes used on the NFS storage in the component, including bytes used for the OS, non-HCP files, and system overhead.
    • Compliant

      Whether the component is marked compliant. A green checkmark indicates that the component is marked compliant.

      If a storage pool includes at least one component that's marked compliant, that pool is considered compliant. A service plan is considered compliant if each tier in the plan includes at least one compliant storage pool. Only compliant service plans can be associated with namespaces that are in compliance mode.

    • In Use

      Whether any buckets, containers, or mount points associated with the component are assigned to a storage pool. A green checkmark indicates that the component includes items that are assigned to a pool.

The Usage Statistics graph in this panel shows the total storage capacity and amount of used storage for primary running storage or primary spindown storage, as applicable, during the past 30 days (or since HCP was installed if that was less than 30 days ago).

The x-axis in the Usage Statistics graph marks the passage of time. The y-axis measures the storage in gigabytes, terabytes, or petabytes, depending on the storage capacity. As the total storage capacity increases, the intervals on the y-axis get larger. The graph heading indicates the current measurement unit (gigabytes (GB), terabytes (TB), or petabytes (PB)).

The legend below the Usage Statistics graph shows:

  • The total storage capacity of the applicable type, excluding the space required for system overhead and the operating system, as applicable.
  • The amount of used storage of the applicable type.

    The used storage value is the total amount of storage occupied by object data, system and custom metadata, the metadata query engine index, and any redundant data required to satisfy data protection level and metadata protection level settings in service plans.

    Used storage includes storage occupied by the parts of in-progress multipart uploads that have already been written to the repository. Used storage does not include storage occupied by replaced parts of multipart uploads, parts uploaded for aborted multipart uploads, or unused parts of completed multipart uploads.

  • The number of logical volumes of the applicable type that are defined on the HCP system.

About storage reports

Storage reports contain statistics about the use of HCP S Series, 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.

    NoteStatistics collected for the current hour may not include some reads and writes that have already occurred during the hour. After the hour is over, however, the statistics collected for it are complete.

Before you begin

To generate a chargeback report, you need the monitor or administrator role.

Procedure

  1. In the top-level menu of the HCP System Management Console, click Storage.

  2. On the left side of the Storage page, click Reports.

  3. On the Reports page:

    1. In the Report For field, select Component, Pool, Service Plan, or Everything to choose what you want to report on.

      Then, in the field next to the Report For field, if you selected Component, Pool, or Service Plan, select the specific component, pool, or service plan you want, or select All to report on all components, pools, or service plans.

    2. In the Reporting Interval field, select Hour, Day, or Total to generate an hourly, daily, or total report.

    3. In the Start Date field, take one of these actions to specify the start date for the report period:

      • Click the calendar icon (calendar icon) to display a calendar. In the calendar, use the arrows at the top to navigate to the month containing the date you want. Then click the date.
      • Type the date in the text field in mm/dd/yyyy format.
    4. In the End Date field, specify the end date for the report period by selecting the date from the calendar or typing the date in the field.

  4. Click Download Report.

  5. Select the option to open or save the report file.

    By default, the name of the report file is report.csv.

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.

IdentifierValue
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 HCP S Series and extended storage, where the requested object was on that storage because of 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 HCP S Series and extended storage because of 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 HCP 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 HCP S Series and extended storage because of 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.

endTimeThe 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 HCP 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
targetThe 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 HCP 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 HCP 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.
