Use AppStack with SRM
The Application Stack, or AppStack, is a term used to describe the various layers that make up a complex application delivery infrastructure. The AppStack Environment view is an interactive visual mapping within Orion that provides an in-depth perspective through the entire environment to help identify the root cause of performance and availability issues.
AppStack automatically gathers information about the objects in your environment, as well as their respective relationships, and displays the information. Some relationships, such as groups and dependencies, can be defined by the user.
You can monitor the health status of storage devices along with associated entities of the storage device. The AppStack Environment reports the status of the arrays, storage pools, volumes, LUNs, servers, hosts, applications, and groups.
SRM automatically constructs a view in the Web Console. No configuration is needed.
As a standalone product, AppStack is available in the software versions listed below. If you own two or more of the listed products, AppStack will not function properly unless each version of the software is upgraded to the versions listed:
- Storage Resource Monitor 6.0 or later
- Virtualization Manager 6.2 or later
- Server & Application Monitor 6.2 or later
- Web Performance Monitor 2.2 or later
