Before installing the Export Tool 2 software, verify that the management client meets the system requirements listed in the following table.
Item Requirements
Operating system Windows:
  • Windows 10 (32-bit, 64-bit)
  • Windows 11 (32-bit, 64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2012 SP1 (64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2012 R2 SP1 (64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2016 (64-bit)

Solaris:

  • Solaris 10 (32-bit)

Linux:

  • Red Hat Entperprise Linux AS v6.2 (64-bit)
  • Red Hat Entperprise Linux AS v7.3 (64-bit)
JRE JRE 8.0 or later
Hardware

Processor (CPU): Intel® Core™ i5-6600 processor or equivalent

Memory (RAM): 4 GB or larger1,2

Free storage capacity: 50 GB or larger1 (Free storage capacity is also required each time the exported data is compressed to create a CSV file.)

TCP/IP: 1 GB Ethernet or 10 GB Ethernet (1000BASE-T, 1000BASE-TX, 10GBASE-T)

Notes:

  1. To run Export Tool 2 for multiple storage systems at the same time, multiply the Free storage capacity requirement by the number of storage systems to calculate the total storage capacity required. 8 GB of memory is also required.
  2. If there are many resources (such as LDEVs or LUs), the memory required might be greater than 8 GB.
The following table shows the estimated used memory size, drive size, and time required for each configuration.

The following table shows the VSP E series estimated used memory size, drive size, and time required for each configuration when running microcode version 93-06-21-xx or later with 33 or more target CUs and a sampling interval of 5 to 60 minutes (288 plots).

1. The output format specified for the “-option” parameter in the export data command.

2. When the number of LU paths is more than 50000, do not specify “resourceid_on_column” because the required time might be more than 12.0 hours.
