EMC Unity VMs Test

This test auto-discovers the virtual machines on the target storage system and for each virtual machine, reports the current health. Using this test, administrators may be alerted to virtual machines that failed/degraded and replace those virtual machines well before users complain that the target storage system is inaccessible.

Target of the test : An EMC Unity Storage System

Agent deploying the test : A remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each VM on the target storage system being monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test



Test Period
