Hitachi Unified Dashboard

The Hitachi Unified Dashboard provides six predefined list views for monitoring Hitachi servers. The views include metrics about performance, disk usage, and component status. When viewing the dashboard, click the name of an item in blue text (Host, Storage Array, Controller, Port, or LUN) to view a Performance Report for that item. Enter text in the filter field in a column header to see only items that contain that text. Click on a column header and then click the triangle icon to toggle between descending and ascending sorting of that column.

If your Unified Dashboard is not populating with data, make sure all required data sources for the Unified Dashboard are enabled. The required probe must be deployed and must be configured so that required QoS metrics and subkeys or targets are activated. For more information, see the help topic on required data sources for the Unified Dashboard.
Hitachi Required Data Sources
The table contains the probes and QoS metrics required for the preconfigured Hitachi dashboard.
The OC Dashboards template, found in the hitachi probe configuration UI, includes these QoS measurements and is provided to assist you in configuring the hitachi probe for the dashboard.
