The warning message you are getting is a problem. Please open a support ticket so we can look at it in more detail.Otherwise, this is showing as expected. If you read my previous post in this thread, I mention that Prism only shows the "extent store" space, I.e non-system Space. Please review the nutanix Bible link I posted previously which explains this in more detail.That said, I think we can improve the way we display this information with a few small tweaks. I'll follow up with engineering

You can see basic capacity information in Prism, under Hardware > Table > Disks

That will show the available capacity for the "Extent Store" portion of the SSD, where VM data is stored.

Note that all space is pooled together, so SSD/HDD work together to service all of the space needed.

You can read more about how we use SSD here: http://nutanixbible.com/#anchor-drive-breakdown-52

I dont clearly show what i mean,

my mistake

I or my customer wish to know the ssd physical all capacity and physical ssd information

in the prism , I found the available capacity and for extent store ,thats true as you say

maybe somewhere can show ssd total capacity or its serial number and so on

thanks for your time

Are you asking for the total SSD capacity for a cluster?

There's a few ways to do that from Prism and the CVM's itself, but a super easy way to see what it should be, from anywhere, is http://designbrews.com

You can put in the type of SSD and HDD's you have, the quanities, and the amount of Nodes, and RF level, and it will spit out the various different utilizations

prism can show hdd information like capacity ,every hdd

Can you post some screenshots? Are you saying Prism doesn't show ANYTHING for SSD capacity when you look at Hardware > Table > Disk?

Here is a screenshot of one of our internal clusters just now, running 4.6.x, it shows capacity, utilization, and the model number

Dear Jon,


I swith to hardware => Diagram => SSD disk

it show some message





I also find it show the information in the hardware => table => disk

select ssd disk , there are many information about ssd




But I have a question about the capacity

in the table , it shows 169.58 GiB

I mean 200GB = 186GiB , but it shows 169 GiB

I have some confuse about this

Thanks
