    Hi All ,

    I have windows TSM sever where there are several drives and I need to understand where my data is being backed up . I have 2 almost full drives with identical space values on them . Also I have one more drive which also contains backed up data but i cannot identify from the > q stgpool command which pool is using which drive and why do I have that additional drive .

    This is my qstgpool output . The thing is backups are failing with space issue and I am not sure if I can use the 19TB on the M: drive ( see pic above )

    If you run "q devc filedev f=d" you will should see that your APP_DATA pool is using both of your K: and L: drives. This storage pool is full.

    Output of "q stg app_data f=d" would be useful to see how much space can be reclaimed from there. It does look like you need more disk.

    Any reason you are not using container pools?

    Can you tell how can I use container pools ? How will it help me ? Also im unsure about the M drive . It has 19tb free and holds some of the backups . Can I reduce that and use it on K and L drives ?

    Ok. K, L and M drives are used for your APP_DATA, APP_LOGS and OS_FILES storage pools. You have more space on disk than has been allocated to the storage pools. 87.3 TB disk is available but just under 68TB is usable by the storage pools.

    From here I would increase the maxscratch for the APP_DATA storage pool by 380. "upd stg APP_DATA maxscr=<new_figure>"

    After that, it would be best to run some reclaimation for the APP_DATA pool. That will clean up any volumes which it hasn't been able to reclaim as well as to help distribute the data across the K,L and M drives.

    As for using container pools, that is something you can look at later. You will need the database to be on SSD disk and you will need more diskspace to do the conversion. The advantages are in deduplication and compression.
