How does eG Enterprise Monitor the VNX Unified Storage System?
eG Enterprise employs an agentless approach to monitor the VNX storage system. This approach requires that a eG remote agent be deployed on a remote Windows host in the environment. To collect the metrics of interest from the VNX storage system, this agent uses the following command line interfaces:
- The Navisphere CLI, for monitoring the block-only storage systems in the Unified storage device
- The CLI on the Control station, for monitoring the file-only storage systems in the Unified storage device
The pre-requisites that need to be fulfilled to use these command line interfaces have been detailed in Pre-requisites for Monitoring EMC VNX.
