Adding the Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage

The eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover an Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage. This implies that you need to manually add the component for monitoring. The steps for manually adding the Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage component are detailed below:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. Click on the Add Component button in the right corner of the Components at a Glance page that appeared or follow the Infrastructure -> Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence.
  3. The Components page will then appear. In the Components page, select Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage as the Component type and click the Add New Component button.

  4. Figure 1 will then appear.

  5. Specify the Host IP/Name and the Nick name for the Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage component in Figure 1

  6. Next, select the External agent that will monitor the target Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage component.

  7. Finally, click the Add button to register the changes.

  8. Once the Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage component is added successfully, you will be again redirected to the Components page (see Figure 2). Using the options provided in the Components page, you can modify, unmanage or delete the newly added component. In addition, you can also configure the tests, set thresholds and maintenance policies, and change the IP address.

  9. To collect the performance metrics, you may need to manually configure the tests that are mapped to the Infiniband Switch component. To configure the tests that need manual configuration, click on the icon in Figure 2. This will lead you to the Specific Test Configuration page where the unconfigured tests for the Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage component will be listed in the Unconfigured Tests list box.
