This dashboard provides an overview of the SVC VDisk performance and the related VMware Virtual machine performance on different levels.
Please follow the outlined workflow to get the best results.


  • Use the selection dropdowns to pick one or multiple SVC Cluster
  • Based on the SVC Cluster selection the "VDisk IO load on SVC Cluster selection" displays all SVC VDisks. A filter is set to display only SVC VDisks holding VM SCSI volumes. The chart provides an overview of the current load situation.
  1. Determine whether a VDisk is causing a higher workload or is out of a specific range.
  2. Note the name of the suspected VDisk.
  3. Pick the VDisk in the template / selection. If necessary, delete all other previous selections.
  4. Compare this workload on the SVC section with the data represented in the VMware section.
