When integrated with Storage Resource Manager (SRM), the Orion Platform provides visibility into all levels of storage layers and servers in your environment, enabling you to locate issues and manage resources at every layer of your infrastructure. SRM works together with VMAN to provides additional storage details at every VM environment level.

Every VM includes far more information than total capacity and free space. With SRM and VMAN, you see:

  • Detailed storage summaries and information from the host to the LUN level
  • Every data array and LUN
  • Detailed LUN data through the Storage Summary page
  • Storage troubleshooting alerts and information
  • Predictive storage usage and depletion based on trending data

These products work together to enhance the depths of data and server status monitored and reported into the Orion Platform.

  1. Click My Dashboards > Virtualization > Virtualization Summary.
  2. In the Virtualization Assets resource, expand and click an object in the virtual environment.

    In this image, select the cluster tex-2k8-2LUNS to open the virtual details page.


  3. In the details page, click Storage.

    The Storage Details page provides in-depth status data for the VM. The following image displays the Storage Data resource with links to related servers in the environment, total and used capacity, IOPS information, and hover over tooltip information.
