The Projects UI is accesssed from "Shares -> Projects". This presents a list of all projects on the system, although projects can be selected by using the project panel or by clicking the project name while editing a share within a project.
After navigating to the project view, you will be presented with a list of projects on the system. Alternatively, you can navigate to the shares screen and open the project panel for a shortcut to projects. The panel does not scale well to large numbers of projects, and is not a replacement for the complete project list. The following fields are displayed for each project:
The following tools are available for each project:
To edit a project, click on the pencil icon or double-click the row in the project list, or click on the name in the project panel. This will select the project, and give several different tabs to choose from for editing properties of the project.
The name of the project is presented in the upper left corner to the right of the project panel. The name of the project can also be changed by clicking on the project name and entering new text into the input. You will be asked to confirm this action, as it will require disconnecting active clients of the project.
On the left side of the view (beneath the project panel when expanded) is a table explaining the current space usage statistics. If any properties are zero, then they are excluded from the table. The majority of these properties are identical between projects and shares, though there are some statistics that only have meaning for projects.
Available space - See Shares > Shares.
Referenced data - Sum of all referenced data for all shares within the project, in addition to a small amount of project overhead. See Shares > Shares for more information on how referenced data is calculated for shares.
Snapshot data - Sum of all snapshot data for all shares, and any project snapshot overhead. See Shares > Shares for more information on how snapshot data is calculated for shares.
Unused Reservation - Unused reservation for the project. This only includes data not currently used for the project level reservation. It does not include unused reservations of any shares contained in the project.
Unused Reservation of shares - Sum of unused reservation of all shares. See Shares > Shares for more information on how unused reservation is calculated for shares.
Total space - The sum of referenced data, snapshot data, unused reservation, and unused reservation of shares.
The left side of the shares view also shows static properties when editing a particular project. These properties are read only, and cannot be modified.
Compression ratio - See Shares > Shares for a complete description.
