v7000 Enclosure PSU Status Test

Each IBM Storwize V7000 system has one or two (optional) control enclosures that contain two node canisters each, disk drives, and two power supplies. A failure of any of these power supplies can prove to be fatal to the storage system as a whole. Administrators hence need to be promptly alerted to such failures, so that corrective action can be taken immediately. The v7000 Enclosure PSU Status test captures sudden changes in the state of the each of the power supplies and brings it to the attention of the administrators immediately, so that the problem can be redressed before any permanent damage is done.

Target of the test : An IBM Storwize v7000 storage system

Agent deploying the test : A remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each Power Supply Unit of the control enclosure being monitored.

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.


The port number at which the specified host listens to. By default, this is NULL.


Specify the duration (in seconds) beyond which the test will timeout in the Timeout text box. The default value is 60 seconds.

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation


Indicates the current status of this Power Supply Unit in this Control enclosure.


This measure reports any of the following values

  • offline
  • online
  • degraded

The numeric values that correspond to the above-mentioned measure values are as follows:

Measure Value Numeric Value Description
offline 0 The Power Supply Unit cannot be detected.
online 1 The Power Supply Unit is present and working normally.
degraded 2 The Power Supply Unit is present but not working normally.


By default, this measure reports the above-mentioned Measure Values while indicating the status of a Power Supply Unit. However, in the graph of this measure, the same will be represented using the corresponding numeric equivalents only.
