Introduction

Dell EMC PowerMax is the platform, which offers massive scalability in every possible dimension — performance, capacity, connectivity, LUNs/devices and superior data services — all with a future-proof architecture featuring end-to-end non-volatile memory express (NVMe), storage class memory (SCM), built-in machine learning, seamless cloud mobility and deep VMware integration.

OpsRamp integrates with Dell PowerMax through REST APIs.

Prerequisites

  • OpsRamp Classic Gateway 10.0 and above (or) OpsRamp Cluster gateway

  • Ensure that “adapter integrations” add-on is enabled in client configuration. Once enabled you can see Dell Power Max integration under Setup » Integrations » Adapter section

Install the integration

  1. From All Clients, select a client.

  2. Go to Setup > Integrations > Integrations.

  3. From Available Integrations, select Adapter > Dell Power Max. The Install Dell Power Max Integration popup appears.
    Note: Ensure that Adapter addon is enabled at client and partner levels.

  1. Enter the following information:
    a. Name: Name of the integration
    b. Upload Logo: Optional logo for the integration.
    c. GateWay Profiles: Select a gateway management profile to associate with the client.

  2. Click Install. The Integration page displays the installed integration.

Configure the integration

  1. In the CONFIGURATION section, click + Add.

  2. On Create Adapter Configuration, enter:

    • Name: Configuration name.
    • Protocol: Protocol. Example: HTTPS, HTTP, etc.
    • IP Address: IP address of the target.
    • Port: Port
    • Alert Configuration: Configure the alert filters, alert severity mappings, etc. based on your requirements.
    Default configuration:
        {"alertFilters":{"alertSeverity":["NORMAL","INFORMATION","MINOR","WARNING","CRITICAL","FATAL"],"alertClearedStatus":["ACKNOWLEDGED","CLEARED"],"alertOnRootResource":true},"alertSeverityMapping":{"NORMAL":"Warning","INFORMATION":"Info","MINOR":"Warning","WARNING":"Warning","CRITICAL":"Critical","FATAL":"Critical"}}
        
    • Notification Alerts: Select TRUE or FALSE.
      Notes:
      • By default False is selected.
      • If you select TRUE, App will handle Critical/Recovery failure alert notifications for Connectivity, Authentication Exceptions.
  3. In the Credentials section, select Custom and enter the Username and Password.

  4. In the Resource Types & Metrics section, select the metrics you want and configure for availability and alert conditions.

  5. In the Discovery Schedule section, select Recurrence Pattern to add one of the following patterns:

    • Minutes
    • Hourly
    • Daily
    • Weekly
    • Monthly

  6. In the Monitoring Schedule section, configure how frequently the monitoring action should trigger.

  1. Click Save.

The configuration is saved and displayed on the page.

After saving the integration, the Dell PowerMax resources are discovered and monitoring is enabled as specified by the configuration profile.

You can perform the actions manually, like Discovery, Monitoring or even Disable the configuration.

The discovered resources are displayed in the Infrastructure page under Storage, with Native Resource Type as PowerMax Unisphere.

PowerMax Storage Array (Native Resource Type) is displayed under Components:

View resource metrics

To confirm Dell PowerMax monitoring, review the following:

  • Metric graphs: A graph is plotted for each metric that is enabled in the configuration.
  • Alerts: Alerts are generated for metrics that are configured as defined for integration.
