SRM provides "single-pane-of glass" monitoring, so that all your storage devices are visible in a common, unified view, regardless of vendor or model. Instead of having multiple monitoring applications, where data may be displayed in different formats and units, SRM provides a straightforward, at-a-glance representation of your entire storage environment.

For example, on the SRM Storage Home page, is the Array Usable Capacity Summary resource. This lists all your arrays in one resource, showing total available and remaining capacity.

The Array Usable Capacity Summary resource provides a simple, overall picture of how much storage space remains. SRM also provides predictive resources that show when objects approach capacity and how long until an object is 90% full, 95% full, or at capacity. SRM does this for all objects, from arrays to individual LUNS and volumes.

In the image below, the LUNs, NAS volumes, pools, and arrays in a monitored environment that are over 90% are highlighted. Two are over 95% full and will be at 100% capacity within a year.
