Networked Storage Data

We have 668 high school teachers using at least .1 MB on a shared network volumes we’ve collectively dubbed “Virtual Share.”

Those 668 high school teachers use 2019.7 GB or 2.02 terabytes of storage. What’s particularly interesting to me is the disproportionate usage between teachers.

The top user, a single person, uses 180 GB or roughly 17% of the total.1

The top 10 users use 733.2 GB of storage.

The top 20 users use 993.6 GB of storage or almost 50% of the storage is used by roughly 3% of the users.2

These are just embeds of the data from Google Spreadsheets. Nothing fancy, not much control but I think it does paint a decent picture of the extreme differences in resource usage. I do continue to have trouble with the interactive chart embeds outside of the spreadsheet. I do like the unintentional psychedelic effect on the pie chart.

1 No judgements on quality of use, just amazement that they are so far out there.

2 Makes me reconsider the whole 1% thing as even more screwed up.

    What am I missing in the first chart? Seems an avis label is missing.

    Also,your second dialect chart in your previous post has access denied.

    I expect more from you, Woodward! Blog like you mean it! πŸ™‚

      I’ll try to make an “avis” label for you but I don’t know how cars will help.

      Secondly, jerk face, the other post talks about the fact that the interactive chart doesn’t show up for some reason. I intend to keep messing with it.

      I hope you’re happy being the reason people don’t blog anymore.

        You consider what you do blogging? I thought it was more like dilletante posttings. And a word to the wise, don;t piss off your one reader!

          Be honest. You don’t read, you just look at the pictures.

            Isn’t this about visualizations, basically a form designed for those who won’t (or can’t) read? Kinda like remedial explanation for the 99%. πŸ™‚ [I don;t know why I am trolling you, but I think it is fun.]

    Now redone using the D3JS library and a TSV file. Sounds much fancier now doesn’t it?
