USERID and PASSWORD

To extract metrics from the target storage device, the eG agent should be configured with the credentials of a special user account, which is specifically created for use with the Java export utility. This user account should fulfill the following conditions:

  • Should not possess the ‘write’ permission;
  • Can be of any user type; however, to ensure that the eG agent collects statistics pertaining to all storage partitions, it is recommended that this user is of type storage administrator;

Specify the credentials of such a user in the USERID and PASSWORD text boxes.
