I'm currently running on puredisk version 6.6.0 and we have purchased a license of 5TB premium infrastructure. We are looking to upgrade the puredisk box to 184.108.40.206 and i was wondering if this upgrade will have some effects on the following
1 - Puredisk is currently protecting about 10 TB of data, but we have purchased only a 5TB premium infrastructure license
The Licensing is Front End TB as you say so by looking at the Data Store will not tell you if your protected or not.
The only real way to work it out is from the Home Page go to "Manage" then Agents.
Click on your SPA name on the to left side. (The one level below "World"). On the right hand side click on "Data Mining Report"
Each client should then be listed and how much actual space is used, eg:
|Data Selection Name: <removed> (9)||Agent: <removed> (8)|
|Total Size on Source: 9.04 GB||Storage Pool Volume Used: 2.96 GB|
|Data Selection Name: <removed> (25)||Agent: <removed> (19)|
|Total Size on Source: 207.26 GB||Storage Pool Volume Used: 67.96 GB|
Add up the "Total Size on Source" for each server and it gives you the true "Front End TB" Value.
If you have OpsCentre Analytics installed I believe there is a Front End TB report somewhere in that from 7.5 aswell but I havent looked myself.
OPS Center does not report on front end capacity for PureDisk Agents. At least I did not manage to make it do so.
You can use Power Shell or some bash scripts for this data size calculation and should be fine with the result as well.
A good practice is buying 20% more than you have in order to secure the probable data growth.
