      Data Domain Physical Capacity Reporting (PCR)     
      In Data Domain OS 5.7 new commands were added to allow the user to generate the physical capacity consumed by a set of files, known as Physical Capacity Reporting (PCR).     
     
      DPA 6.2 SP3 and later DPA versions, include updated reporting on Data Domain physical capacity. The following new reports are added to DPA to generate the statistics on the physical capacity occupied and gather them at a MTree level:     
     
      MTree Physical Capacity Statistics     
      Returns current statistics on Data Domain physical capacity. Uses data from the MTree Physical Capacity Statistics data source.      
      Drilling down on the report returns statistics per MTree.     
     
      MTree Physical Capacity Statistics Trend     
      Returns trend information on Data Domain physical capacity over time. Uses data from the MTree Physical Capacity Statistics data source.      
     
      These reports are available under the Report templates menu - Resource Utilization-Storage.     
     
      If you are upgrading to DPA 6.2 SP3 from an earlier DPA release,you must add the Data Domain (SSH Physical Capacity Reporting) request.
