Question:
How to create a consolidated view of the total storage environment?
Answer:
Create a consolidated view of all separate environments via the Windows Client, and just open a TOTALS window for this view:
 
Total storage based on Storage Groups (POOLS)


This will show all SYSPLEXES (where usually one ‘master’ Vantage runs, and additionally some small ‘slave’ Vantages on other LPARs, which do no DTOCSCAN, POOLSCAN, GOA, etc…
and a TOTAL SUMMARY for all lines in the Totals Window.
However, it is not possible to create a Summary Object for this data, e.g. to log and trend the total installed and used storage.
