vROPS is running again in a crippled state with AD login issues, licensing issues and alert issues but at least it is showing me alerts and emailing me again.
While digging through vROPS today in a Webex with VMware Technical Support I stumbled upon an efficiency alert that I simply had to share.
In summary the image below shows me that if I somehow manage to reclaim this snapshot space I don’t think I will have any storage capacity problems for a considerable amount of time!
Read again – that is almost 2.8 billion TB (or 2.8 zettabytes) of disk space! on a 400GB VM. How many snapshots would that even take to fill? By my estimates around 7 billion full snapshots that were fully written. I’m not sure that is within vSphere 5.5 configuration maximums for snapshots per VM.
