OpStor administration provides options to configure the users, devices, database, alarm actions and escalations, from the Admin tab in the client GUI. This tab is shown only to 'admin' users and hidden for normal users.
The admin options are :
Manage Storage Devices: To add a new device that is not already discovered and to delete devices from the list.
Schedule Alarm Actions: To run a program or send email/SMS, when a particular type of alarm occurs in the system. You can add multiple rules to capture different sets of alarms.
Escalate Unattended Alarms: To configure OpStor to send email/SMS when an alarm is not resolved within a specified time. This helps in escalating important alarms that are not resolved in time. You can add multiple rules to escalate different sets of alarms to different people with different messages.
Email Alarm Reports: To send daily or weekly alarm reports to administrators.
Manage OpStor Users: To add, modify, or delete users and their privileges with this option.
Configure Performance Polling: To manage the performance pollers and to generate threshold events.
Clear Old Data: To specify the time for which data (related to alarms, events, and performance) needs to be maintained in the database.
Configure Mail Server: To configure the mail server settings that will be used to send an email.
