SRM Profiler Health Status

SRM Profiler (versions 5.7 and above) provides a web console consisting of a central place to view the overall health and status of the SRM Profiler software. This includes the SRM Profiler server, SRM Profiler database, and SRM Profiler proxy agents. For more information, see Health status overview.

Monitors

  • Main Console summarizes the storage, servers, and virtualization infrastructure you are monitoring.
  • Event Monitor summarizes the different events that are currently active.

SRM Profiler will show the trap values as a number for asset change conditions. For a description of what those numerical values mean, see Operational Status Properties.

  • Server Monitor shows information on the servers you are monitoring. Click the Legend link for details about the symbols used to convey server status.
  • SnapMirror Monitor shows the current transfer between the source and the destination for all the filers in the group or a particular filer based on the filter selection.

Reports

Below are links to documentation for the types of reports in the Reports section of the Left-Navigation Pane:

Server and NAS Groups

Server and NAS Groups includes information about Servers or Network Attached Storage devices you are monitoring.

SAN Groups

  • The San Groups aggregates information from both SAN devices and OS Devices that have file systems assigned to a SAN device
  • The SAN Storage Status is an overview of the OS device file systems that have been mapped to the SAN.
  • The SAN File System Trends and Forecast are the trends and forecast for the file systems that have been assigned to that SAN group.

LUN Groups

User Defined Logical Unit Number (LUN) Grouping for NetApp, SMI-S, and SNMP enabled arrays. Users can group LUNs based on their own requirements. Once the LUNs are grouped users can view details about capacity and performance for those LUN groups. For more information on grouping LUNs, see Use groups.

The LUN Group Summary link provides the following information about all LUN groups:

  • Usable Storage and RAW Storage.
  • Top 10 LUN Performance by Total IOPs, Latency, Read, and Write.

For customer created LUN groups, the following information is provided. This information is specific only to the LUNS assigned to that group:

  • LUN Group - Console
    • Usable and RAW Storage
    • Top 10 LUN Performance by Total IOPs, Latency, Read, and Write
  • LUN Group – Performance
    • Virtual Machine (VM) Disk Metrics per LUN - Shows performance metrics of VMs in a single LUN. Users can select appropriate LUN from the Group and verify the VM Disk Performance
    • LUN Metrics per VM - Shows performance metrics of the LUN for a single VM. Users can select appropriate VM and verify LUN Performance
    • LUN Performance - Displays performance for all of the LUNs assigned to the group. Comparisons can be made against other LUNS in the group
    • LUN Performance Comparison – Shows LUN Performance and users can compare them with the LUN's additional metrics
    • LUN Group Summary – Provides summary information about the group
  • LUN Group – Servers
    • Allocated Volume Usage - Reports volume usage for servers and virtual machines that use storage array LUNs belonging to user defined LUN groups. This report also provides volume usage for servers and virtual machines with local storage and includes growth rates with forecast information.
    • LUN Details - Explains the RAID group, associated disks, and information of each LUN for a given LUN Group.
    • ESX Logical Mapping – Shows the VMDK, VM, Datastore, and ESX Host of each LUN for a given LUN Group.
