How to monitor IBM SAN Volume Controller?




I want to Monitor a IBM SAN Volume Controller (SVC) with PRTG.

Is there an easy way to get the Performance data out of the SVC. I want to see the latency of the virtual disks and the CPU utilization. It would also be nice to see the read/write times for each virtual disk.

Can you please help me with this issue?

Best regards

thank you very much for your KB-Post. Please check if the vendor of your device offers any MIB-Files that you can import with our MIB-Importer to monitor the target then with SNMP Library Sensors.
It seems there are MIBs IBMs SVCs available

best regards.
