Gets the minimum and maximum possible sizes of a storage tier.

Syntax

Parameter Set: ByFriendlyName
Get-StorageTierSupportedSize [-FriendlyName] <String[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ResiliencySettingName <String> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ByUniqueId
Get-StorageTierSupportedSize -UniqueId <String[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ResiliencySettingName <String> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: InputObject (cdxml)
Get-StorageTierSupportedSize -InputObject <CimInstance[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ResiliencySettingName <String> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Get-StorageTierSupportSize cmdlet gets the minimum and maximum possible sizes of a storage tier. Use this information to create or extend a virtual disk with the specified resiliency setting on a Storage Spaces subsystem.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see    about_CommonParameters.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/Microsoft/Windows/Storage/MSFT_StorageTier

    You can use the pipeline operator to pass an MSFT_StorageTier object to the InputObject parameter to get the storage tier supported size associated with the StorageTier object.


Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • System.Management.Automation.PSCustomObject

    This cmdlet returns an object that lists the minimum and maximum amounts of space that the specified type of virtual disk could use in the specified storage tier as well as the tier size divisor. These values are System.UInt64 objects.


Examples

Example 1: Get the size estimate for a mirror space

This command gets the storage tier supported size estimates for capacity of a Fast (SSD) tier for a mirror space by using the FriendlyName and ResiliencySettingName parameters.


PS C:\> Get-StorageTierSupportedSize -FriendlyName "*SSD*" -ResiliencySettingName "Mirror" 
SupportedSizes                  TierSizeMin                  TierSizeMax                  TierSizeDivisor
