Pinned topic FileNet Image Services Centera Usage

‏2012-09-05T00:32:34Z |
I need to know if there is a way to determine exactly how much Centera space the FileNet Image Service system has consumed. Our Centera cluster is shared with other non-FileNet systems and my enterprise storage folks aren’t sure how they can provide that information without “information from the SDK/API in control”. I do not know how to accomplish this.
Prior to 2012 we were writing to optical so it was easier to estimate our usag

    Try doc_tool's SDSinfo space option, after having done an allowupdates.


    <DOC_tool:lib b>sds Summary info, Detailed, Worker info, All info, Find object, List, DELETE, SPACE? (
    'space') :

    I could find no info on this 'space' option in the Systools guide, but it uses the docs table (perm db) to calculate how much (in GB) you are storing using sds.

    I'd strongly recommend testing this in a non production environmnet 1st.
    And outside of production hours when running in production env.

    I took the default of waiting 1 second per 1000 docs and it ran for about 15 hours...
    You may want to set that to 0 instead.

    We setup a seperate Centera pool for our IS and access it using a pea file.
    We can easily monitor the amount of space we use via the Centera command line interface.
