2 EMC CLARiiON Metrics

This chapter provides descriptions for all EMC CLARiiON metric categories and describes associated metrics for each category. The tables also provide user actions if any of the metrics for a particular category support user actions.

The plug-in can be used to monitor CLARiiON Arrays. Metrics have been provided to monitor the dynamic performance statistics and the static configuration details of the CLARiiON Array.User friendly reports have been provided to view the performance charts of the devices being monitored and the usage of the devices that have databases installed on them.

2.1 Response Metrics
