Viewing container statistics

In the QoreStor GUI, you can view statistics about a selected container. All statistics displayed represent specific information about the backup data, throughput, replication, marker type, and connection type for the selected container. The displayed statistics will vary depending upon the connection type used by the specified container.

To display container statistics for a selected container, complete the following steps.

  1. In the navigation menu, click Containers. The Containers page is displayed.
  2. In the list of containers, find the container for which you want to view statistics, and then click the (ellipsis icon) in the upper-right corner of the container's information pane.
  3. Click Details.
  4. The Container details page contains the following sections:
    • In the Active Files, Active Bytes, and Throughput charts, you can view current statistics for the container.

      The Active Files chart displays the number of active files ingested based on time (in minutes), and the Active Bytes displays the number of active bytes ingested based on time (in minutes).

      The Throughput chart displays the number of read data in Mebibytes/per second (MiB/s) based on time (in minutes), and the number of write data in MiB/s based on time (in minutes).

      NOTE: The values in the Active Files, Active Bytes, and Throughput charts refresh automatically every 15 seconds.

    • In the Connection pane, you can view information about the configured connection type for the selected container. The type of information displayed can be different depending on the connection type. For example, for an RDS container, the following information is displayed:
      • Type
      • Enabled
      • Status
      • Capacity
    • In the Inbound Stats and Outbound Stats panes, you can view detailed information on the inbound throughput, and outbound throughput.
    • The Client Stats pane lists ingest and network information.

Displaying container statistics by using the CLI

An alternate method for viewing container statistics is by using the QoreStor CLI command: stats --container --name <container name>

This command shows the following information:

  • Container Name (name of the container)
  • Container ID (ID associated with container)
  • Total Inodes (total number of data structures in container)
  • Read Throughput (read throughput rate in Mebibytes or MiB/s for container)
  • Write Throughput (write throughput rate in MiB/s for container)
  • Current Files (current number of files in container)
  • Current Bytes (current number of ingested bytes in container)
  • Cleaner Status (current space reclamation process status for the selected container)

For more information on QoreStor CLI commands, see the QoreStor System Command Line Reference Guide.

Creating a container


For more information about storage groups, see Managing local storage

NOTE: QoreStor does not support container names that begin with a number.

Containers can be accessed using the following connection types:

  • NFS
  • CIFS
  • Quest Rapid Data Storage (RDS)
  • Object (S3 compatible)
  • Veritas OpenStorage Technology(OST)
  • Virtual tape library (VTL)

Refer to the sections below for instructions on creating containers:

Creating an OST or RDS connection type container

To create an OST or RDS connection type container, follow these steps:

  1. In the navigation menu, click Containers. The Containers page is displayed.
  2. Click Add Container.
  3. For Protocol, select Rapid Data Storage (RDS) or Veritas OpenStorage (OST) as appropriate.
  4. For the container Name, type the name of the container, and then click Next.

    Container names cannot exceed 32 characters in length, must start with a letter, and can be composed of any combination of the following characters:

    • A-Z (uppercase letters)
    • a-z (lowercase letters)
    • 0-9 (numbers). Do not start a container name with a number.
    • dash (-) or underscore (_) special characters

    NOTE: QoreStor does not support the use of the following special characters in container names: /, #, or @.

  5. In the Storage Group drop-down, select the Storage Group for this container.
  6. Click Next.
  7. On the User Access Control page, select the appropriate permissions for the displayed user accounts. Refer to Configuring User Access Controls for more information.
  8. If you selected RDS, LSU Capacity is set to Unlimited by default. If you selected Veritas OpenStorage (OST), for LSU Capacity select one of the following options allowed per container:
    • Unlimited — To define the allowed amount of incoming raw data per container (based on the physical capacity of the container).
    • Quota: To define a set limit in Gibibytes (GiB) for incoming raw data allowed per container.
  9. Click Finish.

NOTE: To add a container through the command line, use the command:

container --add --name <name> [--group_name <name>]

Refer to the QoreStor Command Line Reference Guide for more information.
