The Storage Capacity screen can be reached via the Capacity item in the Resources menu. This screen shows how storage capacity is allocated for dSources, VDBs, and Snapshots, and permits storage space to be reclaimed through the deletion of objects and Snapshots. 

 
Storage Capacity Screen

Select the Reload Data button to clear your capacity cache and refresh the page. If you are clearing the cache of a large Delphix Engine, this operation could take several minutes. During this operation, the capacity page is not available.

The graph at the top of the page provides a visual representation of the distribution of storage consumption across your engine.

  •   Reserved  - Always 15%; System has an 85% consumption cap
  •   Held  - Total held space size
  •  Your data  - User data (snapshot, log, etc.); Includes shared space     

 Click a tab to view one of the following tables: 

  • Datasets - this tab by default is sorted by descending size and displays the dataset’s type as an icon, the dataset’s name, size, group, and database type. Any Datasets created from Replicas are excluded. This tab is updated automatically (except the size).
  • Snapshots - rows are always sorted by descending size with a link to the dataset page for the Snapshot’s parent dataset. Snapshots created from Replicas are excluded. Freshly created Snapshots not displayed as this table is not updated automatically.
  • Held Space - provides a list of Held Space on the engine. No actions can be performed due to API limitations.
  • Received Replicas - provides a list of Namespaces and by default is sorted by descending size. This tab is updated automatically (except the size).
  • How I works - provides general information about Storage, Retention Policy and Manual deletion.

 Filters available are table-specific and do not apply to the content inside a drawer

  • View - Dataset type (VDB, dSource, vFiles, etc.)
  • Status - locked/unlocked for deletion
  • Type - database type (Oracle, SQL Server, AppData, etc.)
  • Search - search by name (case insensitive)

Select  to export the information provided in the grid to a.csv file. Note: Only the page you are viewing will be exported.

The table section displays a set of information about objects tracked by the Delphix Engine. The information displayed varies depending on the selected tab. 

Datasets
DatasetDataset’s type as an icon and name.  Datasets created from replicas are excluded and deleted Datasets have a strike-through their name.
SizeSpace actually used by the object.
GroupThe name of the Dataset Group.
DeleteEither a Trashcan or a locked icon will be displayed. The Trashcan opens a confirm delete dialog, for Oracle users can select to provide credentials.  A Lock icon as shown below opens a dialog explaining why the selected object cannot be deleted.
Action

Refresh actions that can be taken against the Dataset.

  • Refresh N/A
  • Refresh Dataset
Snapshots
TimestampThe timestamp reflecting when the snapshot was taken.
SizeSpace actually used by the snapshot.
DatasetThe name of the Dataset.
GroupThe name of the Dataset Group.
DeleteEither a Trashcan or a locked icon will be displayed. The Trashcan opens a confirm delete dialog.  A Lock icon as shown below opens a dialog explaining why the selected object cannot be deleted.
Held Space
ObjectThe name of the object.
SizeSpace actually used by the object.
Received Replicas
NamespaceOnce replication is complete, the target Engine will create a received replica, also known as a namespace.
SizeThe amount of space used by the Namespace.

    

Dataset Table or Snapshot drawer provides information on dependent or descendant. The inner dependency table is direct children only and has the same behavior as the outer table. Filter or sorting from the outer table does not apply to the inner table.
