ScienceLogic monitoring for Dell EMC VNX storage systems includes support for both file and block for first generation (VNX 5100, 5300, 5500, 5700, 7500) and second generation (VNX 5400, 5600, 5800, 7600, 8000) platforms. The VNX system is monitored using the SMI-S protocol through the applicable provider. For block the SMI-S provider is a part of the EMC Solutions Enabler software (version 7.6 or higher, but less than 8.0). For file, the SMI-S provider is embedded in the Control Station.
Capabilities in this version include discovery of the array and its storage processors, storage pools, LUNs, and file systems. It collects configuration information for all component devices, and performance and capacity metrics where available. Alerts and events are generated for health issues on critical components as well as at capacity thresholds.
