Processors are expensive, and that is why it is crucial to have an accurate understanding of how much capacity you are using and have left before you run out. The previous approach of buying way more storage than you need is no longer viable.
IntelliMagic Vision provides all the metrics for ‘classic’ capacity planning functions, including processor time usage summaries. Additionally, IntelliMagic Vision estimates growth based on linear models for either a short term or long term basis.
Similar to detecting workload changes, if there is steep growth in capacity usage, that is something you want to be aware of.
Another capability in IntelliMagic Vision is to look at thin-provisioned pools free space.
