Elastic High Performance Computing:Monitor storage resources

Last Updated:Apr 19, 2024

E-HPC provides the storage resource monitoring feature. This allows you to view the performance and capacity data of storage resources in the E-HPC console and understand the usage of storage resources.


If you use a RAM user, make sure that the RAM user is granted the permissions to view monitoring metrics of shared storage in the E-HPC console.

    • Throughput

    • Latency

    • Metadata QPS


    You can view the following capacity metrics:

    • Storage Space (Excluding Recycle Bin)

    • Number of Files

    Time range

    You can select a common time range or specify a time range.

    • Time ranges that you can select: 1 hour, 4 hours, 12 hours, 1 day, and 7 days
