Sensors for HP Storageworks EVA



Your Vote:



Greetings All,

Why is it Posssible for PRTG sensors to gather these parameters from the HP Storage Works Enterprise Virtual Array but can not gather them from other Storage Systems.....

The Enterprise Virtual Array sensor monitors an HP StorageWorks Enterprise Virtual Array (EVA) using the sssu.exe from HP Command View EVA Software .

It can show the status of several EVA modules, depending on the available measurement components:

System controllers
Disk groups
Data replication

If the devices have measuring tools for fans and temperature, the sensor displays corresponding data as well. For these EVA components, this sensor type can show the following:

Operational status
Predicted failures
Accessible media
Allocation in percent
Availability for VRaids in bytes
Exaggerated bytes
Group host access
Number of grouped and ungrouped disks
Age of snapshots
License status

Best Regards.

Frank O.

Dear Frank

So far we implemented and tested this sensor type only for the HP EVA. The current usage rate of this sensor does not justify an expansion to other storage systems at this time.

When considering sensors to build into PRTG, usage rate is very important. For other hardware, we offer a robust and well documented custom sensor API.
