Introduction

This article explains how to import the pre-built configuration into Monitoring Studio to monitor the capacity and performance of the EMC Atmos 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 Atmos 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 that:

  • the system running the PATROL Agent has access to the SNMP Agent embedded on the EMC Atmos storage device through SNMP v1/v2c/v3 and is configured to listen to the SNMP traps
  • PATROL Agent 9.6 or later is installed and properly configured
  • Monitoring Studio KM 9.2 or later is installed with the latest patches and loaded on the PATROL agent
Important: If you are planning to use SNMP v3 with SHA, please use the version 9.2 of Monitoring Studio.

Procedure

  1. Download the EMC-Atmos-for-MSv9.x-v1.cfg file and copy it on the server where the PATROL Agent and the Monitoring Studio KM is installed.
  2. Right-click on the main Monitoring Studio icon > KM Commands > Configuration > Import Configuration
