Monitoring the Hardware

Commvault HyperScale Appliance hardware is monitored to detect errors in the following components:

  • Disk Drives
  • Cache Disks
  • Power Supply
  • Fan
  • NIC (Network)

Dial Home for Hyperscale and Appliance Hardware Alert

The Dial Home for Hyperscale and Appliance Hardware Alert generates and sends a dial home (or call home) alert to the Administrator and hyperscalealerts@commvault.com when an error is detected in a disk drive, cache disk, power supply, fan, or NIC, or when any of these components goes offline in the Commvault HyperScale Appliance hardware. This alert is generated by default for most Commvault HyperScale Appliances.

If the Commvault HyperScale Appliance is installed only as a MediaAgent, then you must download the HyperScale Hardware Monitoring alert from the Commvault Store. To download the alert, see HyperScale Hardware Alerts.

You must configure the alert to send notifications to the cloud and to the Commvault HyperScale Appliance support team. For instructions, see Configuring the Dial Home for Hyperscale and Appliance Hardware Alert.
