To search for specific information you need, you can filter reports tables based on storage attributes you select and keywords you enter in the search field.

1

Log in to the vSphere Web Client.

2

Select an object in the object navigator.

3

Click the Monitor tab, and click Storage Reports.

4

Click Report on  category_of_items and select a category from the list to display information about that category.

5

Click the search field arrow and select the attributes to include in the search.

6

Type a keyword into the box and press Enter.

The table is updated based on your search criteria. For example, if you are reviewing reports for datastores in a datacenter, you can display information for only those datastores that have NFS format by selecting the File System Type attribute and entering NFS as a key word. Filtering is persistent for the user session.
