Among other enhancements and features the continuation of non-IBM device support is extended in this update of IBM Storage Insights.

Whether above or below knowing your capacity limit is vital. A storage pool that is getting close to capacity can be a problem.

The new metrics are Adjusted Used Capacity (%), Capacity Limit (%), Capacity Limit (GiB), and Capacity-to-Limit (GiB).
