  3. From the Discovery Profiles section, select the profile and then click Scan Now to scan Cisco HyperFlex.

Cisco HyperFlex resource is successfully integrated and appears in the Cisco HyperFlex category in the Infrastructure page.

What to do next

After a discovery profile is created, you can do the following:

  • View the integration: Go to Infrastructure > Resources.
  • Assign monitoring templates to the resource.
  • Validate that the resource was successfully added to OpsRamp.

Assign Monitoring templates to the resource

To assign a template to a Cisco HyperFlex resource:

  1. Go to Infrastructure > Resources.
  2. From Resources page of Cisco HyperFlex, click the desired resource name > resource Details > Monitors > Template.
  3. From the Templates screen, click +Assign Templates.
  4. From Apply Templates, Select Templates > Available templates, select the desired templates.
  5. Click Assign. The Templates screen displays the selected templates.

Validation The gateway monitors the application using the assigned templates and displays the results in a graphical format.

To confirm the monitoring of Cisco HyperFlex device, review the following:

  • The graph plotted for each metric in the template.
  • Alerts generated for metrics in the template by giving thresholds.
