Introduction

This article explains how to import the pre-built configuration into Monitoring Studio to monitor the capacity and performance of the Huawei V3 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 Huawei V3 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

Pre-requisites

Before using the pre-built configuration, make sure:

  • You have access to the SNMP agent embedded on the Huawei V3 storage device
  • PATROL Agent 9.6 or later is installed and properly configured
  • The latest patches published for your version of Monitoring Studio are installed and loaded on the PATROL agent.
Important: If you are planning to use SNMP v3 with SHA, please use the version 9.2 or higher of Monitoring Studio.

Procedure

  1. Download the configuration file compatible with your version of Monitoring Studio, unzip the cfg file and copy it on the server where the PATROL Agent and the Monitoring Studio KM are installed.
  2. Right-click the main Monitoring Studio icon > KM Commands > Configuration > Import Configuration
