Managing the EMC Clariion SAN

The eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the EMC Clariion SAN storage device. Therefore, you need to manually add the component for monitoring. Remember that the eG Enterprise automatically manages the components that are added manually. To manage a EMC Clariion SAN component, do the following:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. Follow the Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu.
  3. In the COMPONENT page that appears next, select EMC Clariion SAN as the Component type. Then, click the Add New Component button. This will invoke .

  4. Specify the Host IP/Name and the Nick name of the EMC Clariion SAN storage system. This EMC Clariion SAN component can only be monitored in an agentless manner. Therefore, set the Agentless flag to Yes, select Other as the OS and SNMP as the Mode. Then, click the Add button to register the changes (see Figure 1).


    Though the Mode is set to SNMP while adding a new component, the eG agent will be able to collect metrics from the target environment through the NAVISSECCLI path that will be specified by you during parameter configuration for the tests pertaining to the EMC Clariion SAN storage system.

  5. The EMC Clariion SAN component type so added will be managed automatically by eG Enterprise. Now, try to sign out of the user interface. Doing so, will bring up the following page as shown in Figure 2, which prompts you to configure a list of unconfigured tests for the new EMC Clariion SAN component type.

  6. Click on any test in the list of unconfigured tests. For instance, click on the Clariion Cache test to configure it. To know how to configure the tests, refer to Monitoring the EMC CLARiiON .
  7. Finally, signout of the eG administrative interface.
