Capacity Planning: File Systems

The Capacity Planning feature set in Optiq has been extended by the addition of graphs that detail file system use by Host and can predict trend lines from the data.

Capacity Planning feature set in Optiq

Where in Optiq?

In ‘Capacity Planning’ alongside ‘HANA Memory’.

Note: HANA Capacity Analysis is now named HANA Memory after this release.

Capacity Planning


  • The graph shows one file system at a time. The UI above the graph has a drop down list of hosts. The disk use GiB (Y axis) is graphed over time (X axis).
  • Series for file system limit is shown in red (same as recommended 50% GAL limit for HANA memory).
  • There is a table below the graph which will by default display all file systems on all hosts ordered by the estimated time till capacity is reached. The user may select a row to load the data into the graph.
  • The table contains the data for:
    • Host Name
    • File System
    • Current Size (Amount Memory Metric GiB)
    • Max Data Capacity (Hard Limit Metric GiB)
    • Capacity (% Percentage)
    • Sample Period (Calculates the trend lines, growth rate and time until 100%)
    • Growth Rate (Calculated as GiB/Day from the graph sample period)
    • Time Until 100% (Calculated as GiB/Day from the graph sample period)
  • Optiq sharing, printing and data export tools are available in this feature.

Monitoring Widget links to relevant Alert Rule and Monitor

When in the ‘Monitoring Status’ widget the user can:
