Reviewing historical capacity from the CLI

You can retrieve historical capacity data through the Delphix Command Line Interface (CLI).

If your Delphix Engine is a new engine you would log in as Engine Admin and ssh admin@your engine. Engines created before 5.3.1 and upgraded to 5.3.1 or later will retain their old username 'delphix_admin'. To avoid complications Delphix recommends creating users with an admin role and then disabling delphix_admin.


  1. Log in as Delphix Admin (or an account with admin privileges)
    ssh delphix_admin@yourengine

  2. Navigate to capacity system historical
    delphix > capacity system historical

  3. Then you can list a start and end date for the utilization
    delphix capacity system historical > list startDate=<time> endDate=<time>

For example, looking at the system space utilization, we can show 8 hours starting Sep 1 with the following:

We can also set the output detail level to different granularity, which is based on seconds.

delphix> capacity
delphix capacity> system
delphix capacity system> historical
