Monitoring the Hardware for HyperScale X Reference Architecture

Updated

The Hardware Components view in the Command Center provides the current status of the HyperScale X Reference Architecture nodes, including hardware errors, and can be used to to quickly evaluate the health of the nodes.

The HyperScale Hardware Report can be used to view detailed information about the hardware components (disks, cooling devices, power supply, and network interface) associated with all the nodes in the storage pool. In addition, hardware status associated with a specific node can also be viewed.

Displaying the Hardware Components View

  1. From the navigation pane, go to Storage > HyperScale X.

    The HyperScale page appears.

  2. In the Name column, click the storage pool that you want to monitor.

    The storage pool page appears.

    The Hardware components section provides the current status of the nodes.

  3. Optional: View a detailed hardware status associated with a specific node as follows:

    1. Select the specific node from the Node list displayed at the top of the page.

    2. Click Apply.

      The HyperScale Hardware Report displays the details for the selected node.

Configuring Alerts to Monitor the Hardware

The following additional alerts are recommended to monitor your HyperScale entities. For more information about creating an alert, see Creating an Alert from the Alert Wizard.

  • Mount path Went Offline, Library Went Offline alerts

    Enable these alerts to generate a notification when a mount path or library goes offline. For more information about these alerts, see Predefined Alert Criteria - Device Status.

  • MediaAgent went offline alert

    Enable this alert to generate a notification when a MediaAgentgoes offline. For more information about this alert, see Predefined Alert Criteria - MediaAgents.

  • Insufficient storage alert

    Enable this alert to generate a notification when there is insufficient disk space. For more information about this alert, see Predefined Alert Criteria - Library Management.

  • No DDB Space Reclamation from past N days alert

    Enable the option to generate the No DDB Space Reclamation from past N days alert when a DDB space reclamation was not performed. For more information, see DDB Data Verification.
