CLARiiON/CX SCOM Management Pack

Did you know that EMC has a SCOM management pack for the CLARiiON?  Yes, you can indeed get CLARiiON alerts through SCOM.

The idea behind it is you set up a Windows host as a CX event monitoring station.  The station grabs events from the CX and inserts them into its event log.  The pack can take action on that event (raise a SCOM alert) if configured to do so.

It works against alerts; this is not a facility to import array performance data into SCOM.  There are a variety of very robust tools that can do performance monitoring for you.  Take a look at this screen shot to see the types of events and actions you can take.

It’s very handy way to monitor and track events generated on the CLARiiON.  Almost best of all, it’s free to EMC customers.  Just log into Powerlink and go to:

Home > Support > Software Downloads and Licensing > Downloads J-O > Navisphere Server Software.

    Brian,

    Per this blog, you say “There are a variety of very robust tools that can do performance monitoring for you.” Just wondering if you have a few products you’ve heard about out there that you would be able to divulge. In addition, any sort of performance monitoring products for VMAX that you can list out too? Many thanks in advance!

    Jack.
