In terms of Containers the Tier-wise Usage graph displays a pie chart divided into the percentage of container storage space used by each disk tier (SSD and DAS-SATA).
You can get more information from the Storage Containers Summary View document.
While it’s possible to pin an individual VM to the hot tier using Flash Mode there isn’t currently an option to skip the hot tier or pin a VM to cold tier, at least at the VM level.
Like was mentioned by @MMSW_DE it is possible to configure this at the container level from NCLI (i.e. for all VMs and files in that container) but this is generally recommended against so the option won’t show up in tab complete from the interactive NCLI.
Because of the potential for negative impact (unexpected severe performance issues) I’d recommend to discuss the use case with your Nutanix SE, or open a support case for the condition you’re hoping to resolve through this change.
