From time to time I've seen the following question asked from users of IBM Storage Insights: If you have a customer that is looking at performance data and needs to analyze affected volumes, is there a way to easily do this in IBM Storage Insights Pro without looking at the performance data multiple times?Yes, a very helpful way is to organize your resources into general groups and add volumes to it.
On the general group details page, all the different resource types, such as volumes or pools, that are members of the group or members of its subgroups are shown in the Members section.3. Click the resource type to view the specific resources. For example, click Volumes to view all the volumes that are in the general group or in its subgroups.Here you can see the volumes; the group can be updated instantly, and it is much easier to identify volumes for performance for capacity analysis.
Another way to be notified on any non acceptable performance or capacity activity is to create an alert policy from the alert definitions and notification settings in a general group.
