The progress of migration projects is tracked and displayed graphically.

The following aggregated status information from migration jobs is displayed:
  • The total capacity of volumes for a migration project.
    • You can estimate the time required to complete the migration project by reviewing the remaining capacity and up-to-date elapsed time for migrations.
    • You can determine if you need to add physical storage capacity, or create additional DP pools, by comparing the data capacity to be migrated against the free capacity of the target storage system.
  • The completion state of migration jobs, which provides a snapshot of remaining migration activity for project completion.

A migration project with migration jobs must exist.

  1. On the Mobility tab, select Migration Projects.
  2. Expand the tree and select a target storage system.
  3. Track project status. In the Migration Project Progress window, categories (by capacity) are displayed in a pie chart format (using a variety of colors) for both source and target storage systems. Use your mouse to hover over the pie chart slices to review the name of the category and related statistics. The following table describes the color-coded pie chart categories and other status information:

    Pie chart category

    Storage system

    Description

    Completed

    Source and Target

    The total capacity of the volumes whose data migration is complete, meaning that the (nondisruptive migration) step of the data migration workflow is complete.

    Completed (P-VOL)

    Source and Target

    If you are migrating copy pair configurations, the total capacity of the source storage system primary volumes whose data migration to the target storage system is complete.

    Completed (S-VOL)

    Target

    The total capacity of volumes that are created for secondary volumes in the target storage system.

    In Progress

    Source and Target

    The total capacity of the source storage system volumes that are registered in a migration job and whose data migration to the target storage system is not yet completed.

    Tasks in this category include those that are in the Waiting for Action (waiting for user input to continue the migration job) or Failed (waiting for recovery of a stalled migration job) status.

    Candidate

    Target

    The total capacity of the volumes that are in the source storage system and are not registered in a migration job. If you migrate copy pair configurations, the total capacity of the volumes for secondary volumes created in the target storage system is included.

    Not Planned

    Source

    The logical capacity of the volumes that are in the source storage system and are not registered in a migration job.

    Not Prepared S-VOL

    Source

    The total capacity of the secondary volumes of the copy pairs in the source storage system minus the total capacity of secondary volumes in the target storage system.

    Free Space

    Target

    The total value of the free capacity in the target storage system minus the total capacity of the volumes in the In Progress or Candidate categories in the source storage system.

    If free space warnings display, you might need to adjust target storage resources that are available for migration. Migration jobs that have the Waiting for Action status need to be continued, and stalled (Failed status) migration jobs need to be investigated and resumed.
