Storage Processor Load Test

This test auto-discovers the processors supported by the storage device, and reports the extent to which each processor was utilized.

Target of the test : A Hitachi AMS storage device

Agent deploying the test : A remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each processor supported by the storage device monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed.


The IP address of the storage device.


Specify the name of the storage unit to be monitored. To determine the unit name registered with the Storage Navigator Client for the AMS SAN device, run the following commands, one after another, from the C:\Program Files\Storage Navigator Modular CLI directory on the Storage Navigator Client:



The output of the command includes the Name of the storage unit. DF700M_75011118 is a sample unit name.


Indicate the machine type. The value can be AMS or WMS. By default, this parameter is set to AMS.


Specify the full path to the install directory of the storage navigator.


Indicate the duration (in minutes) for which this test should wait for a response from the storage device. By default, this is set to 5 minutes.

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation


Indicates the percentage of CPU resources of this processor currently utilized.


A high value for this measure or a value close to 100% could either indicate excessive usage of the processor or that one/more processes are contending for limited CPU resources.
