Prerequisites for monitoring StorageTek / LSI Logic Arrays

OpManager uses command line utility (SMcli.exe) available as part of SANtricity Storage Manager Client installation

Ensure that SMcli is installed in the server in which OpManager is installed

Include the directory containing SMcli.exe in the PATHenvironment variable.

  • For Windows : C:\Program Files\SM8\client\
  • For Linux / Unix : /opt/SM8/client/

Ensure that OpManager is restarted (shutdown & started) after including SMcli in the PATH for the latest changes to take effect

Register OpManager server IP address as snmp trap destination.

Ensure that, OpManager installed host and the Storage system has a Fibre Channel Connectivity.

SMcli commands to check StorageTek / LSI Array response

OpManager uses command line utility SMcli to fetch StorageTek / LSI Array details

Ensure SMcli is set in the system PATH where OpManager is installed

Open a command prompt and go to <OpManager Install Dir> and execute the following commands

SMcli 192.168.1.1 -c "show storagesubsystem profile;"
SMcli 192.168.1.1 -c "show storagearray profile;"

where 192.168.1.1 - is the Name of the Storage Subsystem

The following response must be got for any one of the above commands with any of the below strings in the command output

PROFILE FOR STORAGE SUBSYSTEM

PROFILE FOR STORAGE ARRAY

This ensures that device is properly responding for the SMcli commands

SMcli commands to check Performance monitoring of StorageTek / LSI Arrays

OpManager uses following SMcli commands to fetch performance statistics from IBM DS 4000 / IBM FastT Arrays

Ensure SMcli is set in the system PATH where OpManager is installed

Open a command prompt and go to <OpManager Install Dir> and execute the following commands

SET 1 :

  1. SMcli -e <IP Address 1> <IP Address 2> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; show allLogicalDrives performanceStats;”
  2. SMcli -e <IP Address 1> <IP Address 2> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; show allVolumes performanceStats;”
  3. SMcli -e <IP Address 1> <IP Address 2> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; show storageSubsystem performanceStats;”
  4. SMcli -e <IP Address 1> <IP Address 2> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; show storageArray performanceStats;

  5. SMcli -e <IP Address 1> <IP Address 2> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; save storageSubsystem performanceStats file=\\"fileName.txt\\\”;”

  6. SMcli -e <IP Address 1> <IP Address 2> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; save storageArray performanceStats file=\\\"fileName.txt\\”;”

  7. SMcli -e <IP Address 1> <IP Address 2> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; save storagesubsystem performanceStats file=\\\"fileName.txt\\”;”

  8. SMcli -e <IP Address 1> <IP Address 2> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; save storageSubsystem performanceStats file=fileName.txt;”

  9. SMcli -e <IP Address 1> <IP Address 2> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; save storageArray performanceStats file=fileName.txt;”

Where <IP Address 1> and <IP Address 2> - are the two storage controller IP Addresses

SET 2 :

  1. SMcli <IP Address> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; show allLogicalDrives performanceStats;”
  2. SMcli <IP Address> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; show allVolumes performanceStats;”
  3. SMcli <IP Address> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; show storageSubsystem performanceStats;”
  4. SMcli <IP Address> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; show storageArray performanceStats;
  5. SMcli <IP Address> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; save storageSubsystem performanceStats file=\\"fileName.txt\\\”;”
  6. SMcli <IP Address> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; save storageArray performanceStats file=\\\"fileName.txt\\”;”
  7. SMcli <IP Address> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; save storagesubsystem performanceStats file=\\\"fileName.txt\\”;”
  8. SMcli <IP Address> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; save storageSubsystem performanceStats file=fileName.txt;”
  9. SMcli <IP Address> -c "set session performanceMonitorInterval=60 performanceMonitorIterations=1; save storageArray performanceStats file=fileName.txt;”

where <IP Address> - is the IP Address of any of the storage controllers.

  • This ensures that device performance statistics are properly responding for the SMcli commands
