EVA System Status Test

This test reports the current state of the EVA system, monitors space usage on the system, and alerts administrators to space contentions on the system.

Target of the test : An EVA Storage Array

Agent deploying the test : A remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the EVA system.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed.


The host for which the test is to be configured.


Refers to the port used by the EVA SAN device.  By default, it is null.


Specify the IP address of the HP EVA SAN.


Specify the name of the EVA SAN array that has been configured for monitoring.


Install the SSSU.exe software and specify the full path to the install directory of this software here.

Username and

Specify the user credentials using which the HP EVA array is to be accessed.

Confirm Password

Confirm the password by retyping it here. 


Indicate the duration (in seconds) for which this test should wait for a response from the storage device. By default, this is set to 120 seconds.

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

System operational state

Indicates the current operational mode of the EVA system.


The values that this measure can report and the states they indicate are tabulated below:

State Value
good or attention or normal 1
Failed or bad 0
Unknown or not available or notinstalled or not_present or unsupported, etc. 2


By default, this measure reports the States listed in the table above to indicate the current operational mode of the EVA system. The graph of this measure however, represents the operational mode of the EVA system using the numeric equivalents only.

Total storage space

Indicates the total storage space on the array.



Used storage space

Indicates the amount of storage space currently utilized.



Free space

Indicates the percentage of space available for use on the array.


Ideally, the value of this measure should be high. A low value or a value that decreases consistently over time could indicate a potential space crunch on the array.
