The SolarWinds Orion Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) makes use of several communication methods to retrieve information from supported arrays.

SMI-S

Storage Management Initiative Specification

SNMP

Simple Network Protocol

XMS

XtremIO Management Server

API

Application program interface

In order for a storage array to communicate with SRM, it is sometimes necessary for a provider to be installed. Depending on the vendor and the array model, the provider may be part of the management software provided with the array (Type 1 below) or a separate software application hosted from a server external to the array (Type 2) . In some cases the provider is already embedded on the storage array (Type 3). The following graphic demonstrates these three cases:
