Introduction to Storage Resource Monitor

SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) monitors performance and capacity of your storage arrays, helping you locate and resolve storage related issues. SRM supports multiple devices and vendors, providing real-time, unified visibility for all layers of your storage infrastructure.

This administration guide contains the following sections:

Add arrays to SRM Enable the arrays in your storage environment to be discovered and monitored by SRM.
Administer SRM

As soon as devices are detected, data shows up for all storage layers on the real-time performance and capacity dashboards. Drag-and-drop vendor-agnostic widgets can be added and customized to let you monitor all your storage devices however you want.

Set up alerts to notify you before performance and capacity issues become problems. Use pre-built alerts, create alerts, and fine tune the warning and critical thresholds for device types or individual devices.

Create predefined and custom reports to see performance and capacity trends in your storage environment.

SRM solutions

Add addition polling engines or web servers as your storage environment expands.

The SRM Profiler module is also included with SRM, which gives access to more array vendors and models. This can be integrated with SRM and share the same licenses.

Integrate SRM with other SolarWinds Orion modules such as SAM to take advance of SolarWinds Orion monitoring solutions using AppStack and Network Atlas.

SRM widgets The SRM Web Console dashboards provide over 40 widgets that give real-time and historical SRM data in immediate, vendor-agnostic formats. When SRM is used with other SolarWinds Orion products you can build your own dashboards and NOC displays to meet your monitoring requirements.
