A summary of the total storage utilization compared with capacity for each storage device. Each device has its own group of graphs and may display some of the following information: Storage Utilization, Bytes Per Cycle, Managed Space Usage, Time Utilization, Data Throughput, Raw Space Usage, Datastore IO Rate, and Datastore IO Disk Usage. The graphs display both the current utilization and capacity along with projected values all on the same graph.
