This statistic shows the used bytes, in gigabyte units, for the system pool capacity, including data, metadata, and snapshots, except for reservations. It is used as a threshold alert and cannot be displayed in a graph. Unlike other statistics, it is updated every five minutes instead of every second.
Use one of the following methods to create this capacity alert in the CLI.
If you are not using worksheets, navigate to the
datasets context, and use the command
hostname:> analytics hostname:analytics> datasets hostname:analytics datasets> create syscap.bytesused
If you are using worksheets, navigate to the
worksheets context, the desired worksheet, the
dataset context, and use the command
set name. The "\" character below denotes a line break.
hostname:> analytics hostname:analytics> worksheets hostname:analytics worksheets> select worksheet-000 hostname:analytics worksheets worksheet-000> dataset hostname:analytics worksheets worksheet-000 dataset \ (uncommitted)> set name="syscap.bytesused" hostname:analytics worksheets worksheet-000 dataset \ (uncommitted)> commit
When to Check System Pool Bytes Used
This statistic can be used as a threshold alert for the used system pool capacity in bytes. If the threshold is exceeded and the alert is triggered, you can mitigate the situation before the system pool becomes too full and performance is impacted.
System Pool Bytes Used Breakdowns
See Capacity: System Pool Percent Used for a threshold alert for the percentage of the system pool used capacity.
