SAP - Get real Diskname

Hi experts,

in SAP (for example in ST06), I can see a diskname of a disk.

There I have for example "disk1".

But in our storage system this name is unknown.

Whereform do I get the real diskname?

Kind regards

    so lsblk was the answer for me.
    Thx to every body for help.

    dmsetup ls is also very helpful, but I think lsblk is a bit more helpful.

    Hello Christian,

    what is the operating system and what exactly do you see in ST06 for disk? saposcol on Linux gets

    statistics about disks from the file /proc/partitions. To find out the real disk name you should run the following command as root:

    # dmsetup ls

    But this is for a Linux server. What is your OS?

    Hi Guys,

    As per me we can't get the expected results from command df -kh,best would to use command dmsetup ls which Alwina suggested you earlier.
