v7000 Enclosure Slots Test

This test reports the status of the ports that are present on each of the enclosure slot provided on the IBM Storwize v7000 storage system. Further, this test reveals the information on whether a drive is inserted into this slot and if so, reports the ID of the inserted drive.

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 every enclosure slot being monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed.

Host

The host for which the test is to be configured.

Port

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

Timeout

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

Port1 Status

Indicates the current status of port 1 on this Enclosure slot.

 

The values that this measure can report and their corresponding states are mentioned in the table below:

Measure Value Numeric Value Description
offline 0 The port is offline
online 1 The port is online
excluded_by_drive 2 The drive excluded the port
excluded_by_enclosure 3 The enclosure excluded the port
excluded_by_system 4 The system excluded the port
excluded_by_cluster 5 The cluster excluded the port
others 6 Other reasons

Note:

By default, this measure reports the above-mentioned Measure Values while indicating the status of the port 1. However, in the graph of this measure, the drive state will be represented using the corresponding numeric equivalents only.

Port2 Status

Indicates the current status of port 2 of this Enclosure slot.

 

The values that this measure can report and their corresponding states are mentioned in the table below:

Measure Value Numeric Value Description
offline 0 The port is offline
online 1 The port is online
excluded_by_drive 2 The drive excluded the port
excluded_by_enclosure 3 The enclosure excluded the port
excluded_by_system 4 The system excluded the port
excluded_by_cluster 5 The cluster excluded the port
others 6 Other reasons

Note:

By default, this measure reports the above-mentioned Measure Values while indicating the status of port 2. However, in the graph of this measure, the same will be represented using the corresponding numeric equivalents only.

Is drive present?

Indicates whether/not a drive is inserted into this Enclosure slot.

 

This measure reports the value Yes if the drive is present and the value No if otherwise.

The numeric equivalents of these values are mentioned in the table below:

Measure Value Numeric Value
No 0
Yes 1

Note:

By default, this measure reports the above-mentioned Measure Values while indicating the presence of the drive in this Enclosure slot. However, in the graph of this measure, the same will be represented using the corresponding numeric equivalents only.

Drive Id

Indicates the ID of the drive that is currently inserted into this Enclosure slot.
