For this metric you can set different warning and critical threshold values for each "Symmetrix ID" object. If warning or critical threshold values are currently set for any "Symmetrix ID" object, those thresholds can be viewed on the Metric Detail page for this metric. To specify or change warning or critical threshold values for each "Symmetrix ID" object, use the Edit Thresholds page.


3.23 Disk Statistics Details Metrics

Performance of all the disks can be monitored using this metric. The metric runs frequently and fetches the performance data. Some of the performance data monitored are Disk Name, I/O Reads/Writes Per Sec, and KB Read/Write Per sec.

Default Collection Interval — Every 15 minutes

Table 3-23 Disk Statistics Details Metrics

Metric Description and User Action

Disk Reads Per Second

Reads per second on the disk.

Operator - >

The consecutive number of occurrences preceding notification - 1

Error message - Disk %disk_name% Reads Per Second is %value%, crossed warning (%warning_threshold%) or critical (%critical_threshold%) threshold.

For this metric you can set different warning and critical threshold values for each "Disk Name" object. If warning or critical threshold values are currently set for any "Disk Name" object, those thresholds can be viewed on the Metric Detail page for this metric. To specify or change warning or critical threshold values for each "Disk Name" object, use the Edit Thresholds page.

Disk Writes Per Second

Writes per second on the disk.

Operator - >

The consecutive number of occurrences preceding notification - 1

Error message - Disk %disk_name% Writes Per Second is %value%, crossed warning (%warning_threshold%) or critical (%critical_threshold%) threshold.

For this metric you can set different warning and critical threshold values for each "Disk Name" object. If warning or critical threshold values are currently set for any "Disk Name" object, those thresholds can be viewed on the Metric Detail page for this metric. To specify or change warning or critical threshold values for each "Disk Name" object, use the Edit Thresholds page.

Disk Read Throughput (KB/Sec)

Read throughput of the disk.

Operator - >

The consecutive number of occurrences preceding notification - 1

Error message - Disk %disk_name% Read Throughput (KB/Sec) is %value%, crossed warning (%warning_threshold%) or critical (%critical_threshold%) threshold.

For this metric you can set different warning and critical threshold values for each "Disk Name" object. If warning or critical threshold values are currently set for any "Disk Name" object, those thresholds can be viewed on the Metric Detail page for this metric. To specify or change warning or critical threshold values for each "Disk Name" object, use the Edit Thresholds page.

Disk Write Throughput (KB/Sec)

Write throughput of the disk.

Operator - >

The consecutive number of occurrences preceding notification - 1

Error message - Disk %disk_name% Write Throughput (KB/Sec) is %value%, crossed warning (%warning_threshold%) or critical (%critical_threshold%) threshold.

For this metric you can set different warning and critical threshold values for each "Disk Name" object. If warning or critical threshold values are currently set for any "Disk Name" object, those thresholds can be viewed on the Metric Detail page for this metric. To specify or change warning or critical threshold values for each "Disk Name" object, use the Edit Thresholds page.


3.24 Events Metrics

This metric provides information about the events occurring on the Symmetrix Array.

Default Collection Interval — Every 5 minutes

Table 3-24 Events Metrics

Metric Description and User Action

Detected Date/Time

Date and time of the occurrence of the event.

Symmetrix Event

The Symmetrix events are collected by the script. Events like director dead, port inactive, disk pulled out are reported by the metric, between the time intervals specified.

Operator - =

The consecutive number of occurrences preceding notification - 1

Default Warning Threshold - Warning

Default Critical Threshold - Error

Error message - Director: %director% Source: %source% %category% - %description% (Error Code: %numeric_code%) detected at %date_time%.

Alert Text - Once an alert is triggered for this metric, it must be manually cleared.

For this metric you can set different warning and critical threshold values for each unique combination of "Director", "Source", "Category", and "Error Code" objects. If warning or critical threshold values are currently set for any unique combination of "Director", "Source", "Category", and "Error Code" objects, those thresholds can be viewed on the Metric Detail page for this metric. To specify or change warning or critical threshold values for each "Disk Name" object, use the Edit Thresholds page.

Description

Description of the event that occurred.


3.25 Frontend Director LUN Mapping Metrics

This metric provides information about the hyper to frontend director mapping details. Some of the other details that are collected are port number, device name, symbolic ID of the hyper, and physical device name of the hyper.

Default Collection Interval — Every 24 hours
