Why vCloud Tech?Storage resource management reports on storage health, performance and capacity from multiple vendors

Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) from SolarWinds is a robust, user-friendly solution for SAN performance monitoring.¬†SRM¬†provides a comprehensive view of your organization’s data storage health since it designs to enable end-to-end, unified storage monitoring. SRM helps you make educated decisions, fix issues, and enhance storage infrastructure performance by simplifying monitoring across diverse corporate SAN storage providers’ polls and retrieving data from your storage device using a primary poller. Secondary pollers gather data from various locations with extra polesitter user-friendly dashboards.¬†

SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor Overview

Under Hardware Health, SRM also assists users in monitoring their hardware. SRM is designed as a SAN performance monitoring tool to access growth trends and predicted views, making the storage capacity planning process more manageable. You’ll know when it’s time to upgrade your storage capacity. You’ll be able to plan resource expansion and reallocation more effectively thanks to these essential insights and up-to-date statistics.

 SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor means to make SAN monitoring and reporting easy. You can reduce unplanned downtime with a quick setup, straightforward UI, and detailed reports. SRM is designed to give performance information for your SAN across storage providers such as IBM, Nimble, Dell, Hitachi, and HPE storage arrays, making SAN system monitoring simple. SRM SAN tools allow you to cross-stack IT systems and data, view your whole SAN infrastructure, and receive alerts when a critical threshold exceeds, better understanding performance issues and determining the root cause more rapidly.

The following are the Features of SRM:

  • Multi-vendor storage device support¬†
  • Storage performance monitoring and hotspot detection¬†
  • Automatic storage capacity planning¬†
  • Cross-stack correlation of IT data¬†¬†
  • Integration with SolarWinds Virtualization Manager (VMAN) and Server & Application Monitor (SAM)

Better visibility into your storage infrastructure and beyond:

  • SRM was developed for Unified Storage Monitoring:¬†This tool monitors storage arrays from EMC, NetApp, Dell, Huawei, etc.¬†
  • Save resources:¬†SRM’s automated warehouse capacity planning saves time and money.¬†
  • Faster time to resolution:¬†Deep visibility into storage arrays, RAID groups, and LUNs make it easier to quickly identify and address storage issues.¬†
  • Informed Decision Making:¬†SRM provides hundreds of out-of-the-box reports to help you avoid making assumptions.¬†
  • End-to-end IT monitoring:¬†SRM aims to view overall IT health comprehensively. The AppStack dashboard gives you instant visibility into your infrastructure, from applications to storage.¬†¬†
  • Cross-Stack IT Systems:¬†Network data correlation to help identify and troubleshoot problems.

SAN storage capacity planning should be automated:

The automatic storage capacity planning you want providing by SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM). SolarWinds SRM simplifies the SAN storage capacity planning process across your virtual and physical infrastructure by tracking usage over time and identifying capacity issues within an array. As a result, you can gain a deeper understanding of your storage needs, effectively plan when to add or re-allocate capacity, and feel confident making new storage purchases as your SAN expands with centralized access to growth trends, key storage metrics, and a forecast of when power will be reached with centralized access to growth trends, key storage metrics, and a forecast of when capacity will be reached with a forecast of when capacity will be reached These significant insights into storage management across the corporation make forecasting for storage capacity planning and business continuity decisions much more accessible.

Get a complete picture of SAN performance:

You can gain visual overviews of your storage performance with SRM as your SAN monitoring tool, allowing you to more easily monitor multiple arrays with a single dashboard, drill deeper into storage performance problems, view space consumption on storage arrays, RAID groups, and LUNs, and discover optimization opportunities.

With AppStack, you can see deeper into the SAN infrastructure layers:

This clear view gives you rapid access to solution layers when integrated with SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor, Virtualization Manager, and Web Performance Monitor. In addition, it can show you VMs and apps dependent on any storage element.

With a SAN monitoring tool, you can swiftly get to the bottom of storage issues:

SRM’s integrated, thorough dashboards are designed to let you travel seamlessly between levels of storage and quickly pinpoint the source of storage performance issues. You can immediately access critical SAN performance and health information. Thanks to a comprehensive SRM storage monitoring dashboard. Metrics like latency, throughput, IOPS, and IO size are all easily accessible. You can also focus on the appropriate time, which will help you find and troubleshoot performance issues in your storage infrastructure faster.
