Denny the following would be helpful start
Physical Drive (Fiber Channel / SATA)
Enclosure and Disk Number
Physical Disk Size
Each Storage Groups
Server(s) LUN ID
Storage Process Status
Enclosure Serial Number
Onboard Power Supply Status
After that we would be able delve into Disk I/O and performance.
Can you tell us how we can get the info what rcahill requested from clariion ? I tried to pull the information from clariion , still not getting anything
Unfortunately, pulling storage data is notoriously difficult. They do not follow standards in the way that network vendors do. The storage monitoring problem is something we're investigating.
Please do continue to look into this. We certainly need to be able to manage our EMC setups and having it in our Orion reporting would be tremendously hellpful.
We have multiple EMC Clariion SANs and really need this support too! Our SAN infrastructure is growing fast.
All I can get from our EMC, MIB-wise, is management IP up and System name - not much value there.
Hi everyone on this thread - we are working on a new free tool that is focused on EMC Clariion. If you would be interested in trying it out or just hearing more - please email me at email@example.com.
As Denny has pointed out, this is not so much an Orion issue, this is all to do with the fact that the Vendor, in your case EMC, has not put the information you need into the SNMP MIB database for you to then use the Universal Device Poller to collect within Orion.
This is a major frustration in this instance and I have seen issues related to hardware where this kind of information is deliberately left out of the SNMP MIB database, as this would mean the vendor will sell less of its own monitoring tools which uses their own proprietory API to gather the data.
Life would be so much simpler if the vendors followed consistent structures - you may for example have found that HP does not put switch CPU and memory in the resource MIB, instead putting this information in the Private vendor branch instead..
Is this something that will be coming to orion with the Storage software Solarwinds aquired? If so is there any timeframe around this? We have several EMC products (Clariion is one of them) and growing all the time. Any update on this would be very usefull.
