Integrating DPA 11.0 and later with SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) 6.4 and later provides specific features only available when DPA and SRM are integrated. You can see contextually relevant information on storage objects related to databases monitored by DPA, and correlate storage health and performance with the databases mapped to the storage objects.
After you define relationships between database instances and storage objects, click My Dashboards > Databases > DB Storage Summary. DPA and SRM integration populates data to the following resources:
Storage Used By All Databases
This resource displays all storage objects monitored by SRM related to database instances monitored by all your DPA servers.
Storage Objects By Performance Risk
This resource displays storage objects monitored by SRM where the related database instances contain one or more warnings or critical issues that may affect performance.
Storage Objects By Capacity Risk
This resource displays storage objects monitored by SRM where the related database instances contain one or more warnings or critical issues that may affect capacity.
Storage Used By This Database
This resource is on the DB Storage tab of the Database Instance view. It tells you which storage objects are mapped to this database instance.
IOPS Performance Per LUN
This resource provides a chart comparing input/output operations per second (IOPS) for the current LUN with the other LUNs in the same storage pool.
Latency Performance Per LUN
This resource charts the latency for the current LUN compared with the other LUNs in the same storage pool.
