Data Growth Summary and Prediction Report for the Command Line

The Data Growth Summary and Prediction Report predicts the number of days that storage policy copy default data path libraries can be used, based on the amount of data growth over the specified time period and the current amount of free space for each storage policy copy default data path library.

Note: If you want to collect information for all libraries, use the GET Library Details REST API. If you want to collect information for all mount paths, use the GET Drive Controller REST API. For more information, see GET Library Details REST API.
