I would like to add a provision space display to the dashboard. That will help to calculate when more space need to be added or get an accurate reports.
Currently I see the used and available space on the dashboard. Can this feature be added to the dashboard? Or, can I get the query for the current used space and mod it to report the provision space?

Any thoughts on this?

I would like to add to the dashboard:
Total used space
Total available space
Total provision space
Total space after provisioning

Any suggestions on this request on how to move forward with this request?

What do you mean "provision space"? As in reservations?

Hi Ericloewe,

I am referring to the space assigned to a folder under quotas. The space has been provisioned to prevent the folder from growing too large.
I would like to be able to see how much space has been giving assigned via quotas in the storage. The information will assist on giving an idea of the total actual spaced being provisioned using quotas and a better planning for adding more drives to the storage.

Well, the quota is available + used. If you'd like support for arbitrary fields from zfs list, I'd recommend filing a feature request for that.
