How to Monitor HP EVA Storage Array Using eG Enterprise?
eG Enterprise monitors the HP EVA Storage Array using an eG external agent on any remote host in the environment. This agent is capable of monitoring the performance of the array via SNMP. The eG agent periodically polls the SNMP MIB of the storage array and collects metrics related to its performance. To pullout performance metrics from the target storage array, a set of pre-requisites should be fulfilled. These pre-requisites have been discussed in the following sections;
- Pre-requisites for Monitoring the HP EVA
- Pre-requisites for Using the HP EVA Perf Component
- Pre-requisites for Using the HP EVA SSSU Component
Once the requirements discussed in the above-mentioned sections are fulfilled, proceed to monitor the HP EVA Storage Array using eG Enterprise. There are two broad steps for monitoring the HP EVA Storage Array:
