The Storage unified dashboards provide out of the box dashboards with key performance and capacity information for storage devices.
You can use this data to spot potential performance issues and get an early warning of potential capacity issues and avoid downtime. The storage dashboard provides a unified view of various types of storage devices. The storage devices supported include the following:
  • EMC Celerra series
  • EMC Clariion series
  • EMC VNX series
  • EMC VMAX/DMX series
Contents
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.
Storage Required Data Sources
The table contains the probes and QoS metrics required for the preconfigured Storage dashboard.
Probe
QoS Required
clariion
netapp
celerra
vmax
ibm
Note
: Not all of these probes are required. The reports look for one or more of the probes if they exist.

Storage IOPS
This view displays the I/O performance of a storage system as the number of I/O operations per second. This performance metric is critical to understanding bottlenecks or throughput in a storage array system.
Chart
Description
Storage IOPS
This chart portrays the overall Number of I/O operations per second for every storage array.
Storage IO Data Rate
This view displays the overall data bandwidth measured as average disks read and write (I/O) data rate in kilobits (Kb) per second of all discovered storage systems.
Chart
Description
Disks Reads Kb/sec
This displays overall disk data reads in Kb per sec for each discovered and monitored storage system. This indicates storage bandwidth and speed of Data access.
Disks Writes Kb/Sec
This displays overall disk data writes in Kb per sec for each discovered and monitored storage system. This indicates storage bandwidth and speed of Data storage.
Storage Systems Status
This view displays the status of all discovered storage systems.
Column
Description
Storage Systems
This lists the host or controller IP address of host name of all discovered and monitored storage systems.
Alarm Status
This shows the alarms from all discovered and monitored storage systems with standard color scheme pertaining to severity.
Number of Storage Devices
This list view displays the number of storage devices in each discovered storage system.
Column
Description
Storage Systems
