Accelerator Disks

Accelerator storage is provided by disks. A disk is a partition of a data store that is allocated to a specific accelerator. You can view/edit/migrate disks and check disk usage statistics (IOPS).

    • IOPS for the last 24 hours
    • Data written/read for the last 24 hours
    • Data written/read for the last hour
