Hitachi Content Intelligence (HCI), is an end-to-end data processing and retrieval solution that automates the extraction, classification and categorisation of data residing in public, private and hybrid clouds.

HCI is integrated with REST APIs that are exposed through HCI cluster instances.

Supported versions

  • REST APIs: Hitachi HCI REST API 1.6.3
  • Gateway version: 8.0 HF cg & above

Step 1: Configure the integration

  1. From All Clients, select a client.
  2. Go to Setup > Integrations > Integrations.
  3. From Available Integrations, select Adapter > Hitachi HCI and click Install.
  4. Add Configuration, select Add.
  5. Enter:
    • Name - configuration name
    • HCI IP address
    • Port
    • Protocol
    • Credentials: Enter username and password
  6. Select Resource Types & Metrics
    • Configure threshold values and alert conditions for one or more metrics
  7. Click Save.
Hitachi HCI - Update Adaptor Configuration

Step 2: Add a discovery and monitoring schedule

  1. From the Update Adapter Configuration section, enable Discovery Schedule.
  2. Select Recurrence Pattern from the drop-down values and configure.
  3. Update Monitoring Schedule. By default it is set to 30 minutes.
  4. Save the integration.

After the integration is saved properly, the Hitachi HCI server is discovered and monitoring is enabled as per the configured metric criteria. The configured resource is displayed in the Hitachi HCI category in the Infrastructure page.

Next steps

After integration profile is created, you can do the following:

  • View the integration: Go to Infrastructure > Resources.
  • Validate that the resource was successfully added to OpsRamp.
  • View metrics graphs from the Infrastructure > Metrics.

To confirm the monitoring of Hitachi HCI resource, review the following:

  • The graph plotted for each metric that is enabled in the configuration.
  • Alerts generated for metrics that are configured as per defined integration.
