Storage metrics from eHealth

    Hi Guys


    I have noticed that physicals servers which are collected from eHealth do not show Storage usage when i look at the usage on CCC.


    Which metrics are used to calculate that storage bytes per second on CCC?


    Is it this one:

    Data Manager Metric - DISK_READ_BYTE_RATE

    Description - Read Byte Rate

    Unit - Bytes per second





    Data Manager Metric: DISK_TOTAL_BYTE_RATE

    Description: Total Byte Rate

    Unit: Bytes per second

    Hi David,

    Are you asking about what metric is used for Disk utilization in CCC chart?

    Where metrics are missing from ehealth?

    CCC Disk usage chart:



    Total Byte Rate per second would be:

    The eHealth Data Adapter does not collect the appropriate metric for showing the Storage charts in CCC.

    CCC uses the 'GBL_DISK_TOTAL_BYTE_RATE' metric for the Storage Usage charts.

    The eHealth Data Adapter collects 'per disk' data for storage info but not a system total value.

    Hi Kip


    Does this mean that I on the CCC dashboard i will never get those metrics shown on ccc?

    With the eHeatlh data adapter, yes, that is correct.

    Thanks for the information Kip


    Is there a workaround of getting that information?

    I have a theory...I have not tested or tried this; but it might be possible to either modify the eHealth data adapter to calculate a total system byte rate based off the individual disk byte rates and map to the system level disk rate metric. Another possibility would be making a custom data adapter that pulls from the Data Manager disk tables and calculates the same.

    The process would be to sum up for each system all of the "DISK_READ_BYTE_RATE" and "DISK_WRITE_BYTE_RATE" values for the individual disks.
