Issue/Introduction

As per the below calculation for the Windows n/w windows drive, please share the formulae what we have to multiply based on the APM console value which will be equal to the server drive value.

Server R drive Total : 999 GB, Used: 341 GB
APM console : 65.5 in blocks

 

Below calculation was done in last time, but unable to find the exact formulae on the same.
 
Systemedge report in blocks
Block size 64k
Used Blocks 1.1
Number blocks 3.1
R Drive Systemedge
Size of disk 199 GB
Use 70GB at time
R Drive OS
1.1x64=70.4
3.1x64=198.4
Calculations from blocks to GB
These are round numbers.

What we have is documented in https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/it-operations-management/dx-apm-saas/SaaS/implementing-agents/infrastructure-agent/host-monitoring/Host-Monitoring-on-Linux/host-monitoring-metrics-linux/Storage-Metrics---Linux.html

Did you try in 21.1 and later to have a current example?

So below is your example

Below calculation was done in last time but unable to find the exact formulae on the same.
 
Systemedge report in blocks
Block size 64k
Used Blocks 1.1
Number blocks 3.1
R Drive Systemedge
Size of disk 199 GB
Use 70GB at time
R Drive OS
1.1x64=70.4
3.1x64=198.4
Calculations from blocks to GB
These are round numbers.

 

There are sample converters online with different block size

https://www.unitconverters.net/data-storage/block-to-byte.htm

 

Formulas above

Bytes Used = Used Blocks (1.1) x Block Size (64) =70.4

Bytes Total = Total Blocks (3.1) x Block Size (64) =198.4

 

Additional Information

Application team cannot move to the 21.12 new version as of now, Just wanted to cross-check with you, how to convert blocks to the bytes for a temporary solution. 


In end of Jun'22 application team will be in position to install 21.x version. If the formulae, you are unable to provide, then please go ahead and close the ticket. 

I think Broadcom staff covered this well in that session. I provided the formula that they used that was satisfactory at that time.

There are also a variety of blocks to bytes on-line calculators that can assist you.

I googled: blocks to bytes calculator and multiple hits came up.

Since the question was answered, closing case as agreed.
