The Data Movers Layer

A Data Mover is a cabinet component that is running its own operating system that retrieves data from a storage device and makes it available to a network client. This is also referred to as a blade. The tests mapped to the Data Movers layer monitor the performance of each data mover and accurately point administrators to that data mover that may be under-performing. In addition, this layer also monitors and reports the current status of the statmon service.
