Description: How to monitor EMC Isilon storage devices with Monitoring Studio v9.2 and higher.
Additional Keywords: EMC, EMC Isilon
This article explains how to import the pre-built configuration into Monitoring Studio to monitor EMC Isilon storage devices through SNMP. The Sentry Storage Analyzer for TrueSight OM license is required to use Monitoring Studio.
The pre-built configuration does not cover all the monitoring aspects of EMC Isilon storage devices. It is provided as an example and can be used as a working base for advanced monitoring. No support will be provided for this prebuilt configuration. Should you need further assistance to customize it, please contact our Professional Services team.
The pre-built configuration collects the following metrics:
Importing the Pre-Built Configuration
Before using the pre-built configuration, make sure:
- PATROL Agent 9.6 or later is installed and properly configured
- Monitoring Studio KM 9.2 or later is installed and loaded on the PATROL agent
- The system on which the PATROL Agent is installed has access to the SNMP agent embedded in the EMC Isilon storage device through SNMP v1, v2c, or v3.
- Download the EMC-Isilon-for-MSv9.x-<version>.zip file, extract the .cfg file and copy it on the server where the PATROL Agent and the Monitoring Studio KM are installed.
- Right-click the main Monitoring Studio icon > KM Commands > Configuration > Import Configuration
