Description

This connector discovers the enclosure(s) and the disks of IBM FlashSystem 900s as well as the various environment sensors (temperatures, fans, power supplies). It relies on the SNMP protocol.

Connector ID: IBMFlash900

Target

Typical platform: IBM FlashSystem

Operating system: Storage System

Prerequisites

Leverages: IBM FlashSystem 900 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 IBMFlash900 --snmp v2c --community public

hws-config.yaml

hosts:
- host:
    hostname: <HOSTNAME> # Change with actual host name
    type: storage
  selectedConnectors: [ IBMFlash900 ] # Optional, to load only this connector
  snmp:
    version: v1 # Read documentation for v2 and v3
    community: public # or probably something more secure
