Monitor EMC VNX / Clariion arrays in SRM

EMC VNX / Clariion arrays are monitored through an external SMI-S Provider. If you already have the EMC Solutions Enabler Appliance deployed, you can use the SMI-S provider.

For information on enabling the provider, see the Enable the Solutions Enabler Appliance knowledge base article.

After the array is enabled, you can begin monitoring as described in Add your storage array for monitoring with SRM.

Hardware Health Monitoring is available for the following sensors on EMC /VNX CLARiiON arrays:

  • Fan
  • Power Supply
  • Battery
  • Management Controller
  • I/O Module
  • Port

You can additionally monitor file storage on the EMC VNX using a combination of an onboard SMI-S Provider and XML APIs. To do this, after the array has been added, go to the details page for the array, scroll down to the Getting Started Monitoring File Storage for EMC VNX Arrays widget, and click Configure This Array.

SRM 2019.4 introduces Controller Monitoring for EMC VNX Clariion arrays.
