Today I release a special Christmas gift for you. For some time, I’m writing a PowerShell script to generate a Storage Spaces Direct dashboard. This dashboard enables you to validate each important setting for a S2D cluster.
I decided to write this PowerShell script to avoid to run hundred of PowerShell cmdlet and check manually returned value. With this dashboard, you get almost all the information you needs.
Where can I download the script
The script is available on github. You can download the documentation and the script from this link. Please read the documentation before running the script.
Storage Spaces Direct dashboard
The below screenshot shows you a dashboard example. This dashboard has been generated from my 2-node cluster in lab.
I plan to improve the script next year by adding the support for disaggregated S2D deployment model and to add information such as the cache / capacity ratio and the reservation space.
I’d like to thanks Dave Kawula, Charbel Nemnom, Kristopher Turner and Ben Thomas. Thanks for helping me to resolve most of the issues by running the script on your S2D infrastructures
