Monitoring capacity

The available capacity of storage and snapshot pools and groups are monitored. Alerts are generated when certain thresholds are exceeded. These monitors allow a storage administrator to ensure that adequate capacity is available on a system.

The following table shows the default thresholds for the capacity monitors. If the thresholds are not appropriate for your environment, you can override them, either for all instances of the monitors or for specific snapshot, storage pools, or virtual volume.
