Tape library management

Monitoring and management of tape libraries using OpManager

ManageEngine OpManager is a Tape Library management system that uses the vendor specific MIBs and/or APIs to automatically discover the tape libraries in SAN / NAS networks. Complete set of assets (physical and logical), capacity, performance, and configuration information of the Library and its components are discovered and represented in the OpManager client.

Tape library is monitored for parameters such as cleaning status, door status, operational status, etc. Tape drives are monitored for addition, removal, mounting, unmounting, and other functions, and to detect fault conditions. SNMP traps from the tape library are collected and alarms are generated for fault conditions.

Availability reports on tape libraries show the availability trends, downtime history, MTTR, MTBF, etc and reports can be generated for various time periods.

OpManager enables launching of vendor's device management web applications directly from OpManager client and thus provides remote telnet capability via its web interface enabling remote configuration ability.
