vROPS 8.0 - Is there a way to create a report that contains a list of vmdk's that shows the delta of the last 24 or 48 hrs using the metric of partition utilization?

I am having the issue of a few volumes filling up and are not sure where it is coming from. We thin provision (i know that with thick provisioning it wouldn't be an issue) but it is what was setup before me. I am just looking for a way to easily do a show/shameback to the admins that are taking the space.

I am trying to understand what you trying to accomplisch, you want to get the partition utilization of the last 24 hours of VMs?

@RickVerstegen Here's an example of what I am referring too.

Server A has 3 disk's C$, D$, E$. Each disk is thin provisioned with a capacity of 100GB.

At 8am, disk C$ is using 10GB, disk D$ is using 25GB, and disk E$ is using 2GB.

Then, at 1pm, disk C$ is using 12GB, disk D$ is using 50GB, and disk E$ is using 60GB.

Then, at 8pm, disk C$ is using 12GB, disk D$ is using 60GB, and disk E$ is using 100GB. (vRops now alerts disk is full for E$)

What i would like to see in a dashboard would be the ability to see a chart that would call out different vmdk's that have had the greatest change in the last 12 or 24 hours. So in this example it would show a chart with E$ first sense it had the highest vmdk change then D$, then C$.

Hopes this helps clarify things.

I am not 100% sure, but I think this is not possible.

Maybe super metrics can fulfill this. You also have to deal with the time range in someway (latest 12 and or 24 hours)
