Enclosure visualization


Nov 11, 2020
Managing a Proxmox cluster in the datacenter with multiple nodes and multiple drives (Ceph OSD and ZFS pools) per node, I am missing an easy way to locate the drive in the enclosure. Smart data or Ceph OSD status visualized in a simple row/column fashion.

Is is possible to add a simple visualization, where per drive we can specify the row and column of it's location, so it can show up as a simple table/matrix where the colors/names/status can be easily shown. Examples can be found in QuantaStor and Truenas:

we don't currently manage disks in the way those products do (there are API endpoints querying all available disks that allow certain operations on them, but there is no config file saying "disk A does B and is located at X,Y"). so likely not, until/unless we significantly expand disk management scope at some point in the future.
