Monitoring Cohesity Backup

eG Enterprise offers a special-purpose monitoring model for the Cohesity Backup server to monitor the status and overall performance of the target Cohesity Backup.

Figure 1 depicts the layer model of a Cohesity Backup server.

Figure 1 : Layer model for Cohesity Backup server

Every layer in the Figure 1 is mapped to various tests to determine the critical statistics related to the performance of the target Cohesity Backup server. Using the metrics reported by the tests, administrators can find accurate answers for the following performance queries:

  • What is the current status of each cluster in the target Cohesity Backup server?

  • How many nodes that exist in each cluster?

  • What is the amount of space that is available for use in each cluster?

  • What is the percentage of space utilized on each cluster of the target Cohesity Backup server?

  • What is the current status of each fan in the target Cohesity Backup server?

  • What is the speed of each fan in the target Cohesity Backup server?

  • What is the current status of each power supply unit in the target Cohesity Backup server?

  • How much power is flowing out of each power supply unit in the target Cohesity Backup server?

  • What is the status of each CPU slot in the target Cohesity Backup server?

  • What is the speed of the CPU that executes number of cycles per second?

  • How many CPU cores that exist in each CPU slot of the target Cohesity Backup server?

Since the tests mapped to the Network Layer have been elaborately discussed in Monitoring Cisco Router document, the sections to come will discuss the other layers in detail.
