Introduction

This article explains how to import the pre-built configuration into Monitoring Studio to monitor EMC ECS v3.0.

Important Note: This pre-built configuration does not cover all the monitoring aspects of EMC ECS. It is provided as an example and can be used as a working base for advanced monitoring. No support will be provided for this pre-built configuration. Should you need further assistance to customize it, please contact our Professional Services team.

Monitored Parameters

The pre-built configuration was developed for EMC ECS v3.0 and collects the metrics listed below. If you are using older versions, the objects discovered may differ.

Important Note: The monitors “Authenticate” and “Set Token” should never be modified!

Importing the Pre-Built Configuration

Pre-requisites

Before using the pre-built configuration, make sure that:

  • the PATROL Agent 9.6 or later is installed and properly configured,
  • Monitoring Studio KM 9.4.00 or higher is installed with the latest patches and loaded on the PATROL Agent
  • You have access to the EMC ECS API running on port 4443 from the server running the PATROL Agent.

Procedure

  1. Download the configuration file, unzip and copy it on the server where the PATROL Agent is installed and loaded with the Monitoring Studio KM.

  2. Right-click on the main Monitoring Studio icon > KM Commands > Configuration > Import Configuration…

    Importing the pre-built configuration

  3. Locate the folder where the downloaded .cfg file is saved and select the EMC ECS configuration file.

    Selecting the configuration file to import

  4. Leave the TOKEN constant value empty and click Next.

    Setting the Token Group

  5. Monitoring Studio indicates the number of hosts found in the configuration file that require specific information before being imported. You can click the Hosts button to view the list. Click Next.

    Verifying the Host Information

  6. Provide the hostname or IP address of the EMC ECS cluster to be monitored and click Next.

    Providing the hostname or IP address of the EMC ECS cluster to be monitored

  7. Specify the credentials to access the EMC ACS API and click Next.

    Providing the credentials to access to the EMC ECS to be monitored

  8. Review the Import Summary and click Next.

    Reviewing the import summary

  9. Click Finish.

  10. Once the configuration is loaded, right-click on the ECS v3 group icon and click Refresh Parameters. This will generate a new token to access the API. This new token will be used in the Web Requests.

    Important: The monitors “Authenticate” and “Set Token” should never be modified!
    Note: Thresholds are not set by default. We recommend you set them according to your specific requirements.
