When you add a storage array for which hardware health monitoring is supported, monitoring is automatically enabled. You can disable an array or individual sensors, and set the critical and warning thresholds for each sensor.

Manually enable or disable hardware health monitoring for an array

  1. In the All Storage Objects resource, click the required array.

    This opens the Details page for the array.

  2. Click Edit Array in the Management resource.

    This opens the Edit Properties page for this array.

  3. Select or clear the Hardware Health Polling checkbox.
  4. Click Submit.

Manually enable or disable individual hardware health sensors

  1. Go to Settings > All Settings.
  2. Click Manage Hardware Sensors in the Node & Group Management panel.
  3. Use the Group By drop-down to display the sensors.
  4. Select the sensors to be enabled or disabled, then click the Enable or Disable icon.

Use custom thresholds for hardware health

You can set custom thresholds to override default sensor rules for a specific array.

For example, for fan sensors you might want to be warned if the fan is spinning faster than 5000 rpm or slower than 4500 rpm, and given a critical warning if it rises above 5500 rpm or falls below 4000 rpm, so you would set up the following conditions.

  1. Go to Settings > All Settings.
  2. Click Manage Hardware Sensors in the Node & Group Management panel.
  3. Use the Group By drop-down to display the sensors you require.
  4. Select a sensor, and click the Edit Thresholds icon.
  5. Select Set Custom Thresholds.

    This opens the Warning Threshold and Critical Threshold settings for the selected device.

    Select Force to Up to permanently set a sensor status as UP. This option ignores data from the sensor.

  6. For each threshold, set the condition and value.
