IBM FlashSystem 700/800

Description

This connector discovers the enclosure(s) and the disks of IBM FlashSystem 700/800s as well as the various environment sensors (temperatures, fans, power supplies). It relies on the SNMP protocol.

Connector ID: IBMFlash800

Target

Typical platform: IBM FlashSystem

Operating system: Storage System

Prerequisites

Leverages: IBM FlashSystem 700/800 SNMP Agent

Technology and protocols: SNMP

This connector is not available for the local host (it is applicable to remote hosts only).

Examples

CLI

hws HOSTNAME -t storage -f IBMFlash800 --snmp v2c --community public

hws-config.yaml

hosts:
- host:
    hostname: <HOSTNAME> # Change with actual host name
    type: storage
  selectedConnectors: [ IBMFlash800 ] # Optional, to load only this connector
  snmp:
    version: v1 # Read documentation for v2 and v3
    community: public # or probably something more secure

Connector Activation Criteria

The IBM FlashSystem 700/800 connector will be automatically activated, and its status will be reported as OK if all the below criteria are met:

  • An SNMP Get-Next on the OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.8378.10.1 must return a value in the same subtree
