Performance analysis and monitoring for IBM SVC and Storwize



This little example shows how BVQ can be used to quickly retrieve information from SVC.

We want to know how much capacity is used by all VDisk copies.
This can be achieved in only 3 steps which will take you less than a minute


  • Step1: Start with the standard favorite and modify the path to
    /BVQ/Cluster/MDisk group/VDisk copy

  • Step 2: create a filter for the VDisk copies which is filtering out the secondaries

    You add the Filter by using the right mouse button on VDisk copy

    Describe the condition

  • Step 3: hide the Treemap and just look at the table
    You can now see virtual capacities, allocated capacities, savings from thin provisioning and compression
