Disk Usage


The Disk Usage application enables users to configure settings such as the limit for maximum disk usage (in percentage). The app also shows the current disk space usage and allows CE administrators to export PDF reports showing the current disk usage and the remaining disk space. The application has a Report section consisting of an interactive analysis tool providing visual depiction of how the Crystal Eye appliance disk is bifurcated in terms of space usage.


You may also view the disk usage widget in the System Dashboard to know the data stored in the directories of the Crystal Eye XDR appliance.


The Disk Usage application is installed by default and can be accessed from the left-hand navigation panel.

Disk Usage Analysis Tool

The disk usage details can be further analysed with the help of an interactive analysis tool. This tool looks like a pie-chart with multiple parts. Each part of the pie depicts a particular directory of CE’s disk and you would also find the amount of data that these directories hold which are labelled against them.

The interactive part of the tool is that each part of the pie-chart depicting the directory and the data size can be clicked which would essentially lead to the sub-directory with the size of the data labelled against it. This method can be used to know the disk usage of each directory of the Crystal Eye appliance.
