The Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) is a high-capacity, high performance data storage system that offers a wide range of storage and data services, software, logical partitioning, and simplified and unified data replication across heterogeneous storage systems.

OpsRamp integrates with VSP through Tuning Manager which leverages agents for RAID for collecting performance and usage metrics.

Supported versions

  • Tuning Manager 8.7.6
  • REST API: API version 1.3
  • Gateway version: 8.0 HF cg & above

OpsRamp configuration

Configuration involves:

  1. Installing and configuring the integration.
  2. Adding a discovery and monitoring profile.

Step 1: Install and configure the integration

  1. From All Clients, select a client.
  2. Go to Setup > Integrations > Integrations.
  3. From Available Integrations, select Adapter > Hitachi VSP and click Install.
  4. Select Add to set configuration and enter details for the following:
    • Name: Configuration name
    • IP Address: Specifies IP address of the target VSP storage system
    • Tuning Manager IP address: IP address of tuning manager
    • Instance Name: VSP instance name as configured in RAID agent
    • Port: Tuning Manager Port
    • Protocol
    • Credentials: Enter username and password
  5. Select Resource Types & Metrics
    • Configure threshold values and alert conditions for one or more metrics.
  6. Click Save.

Step 2: Add a discovery and monitoring schedule

To add a discovery profile:

  1. From the Update Adapter Configuration section, enable Discovery Schedule.
  2. Select Recurrence Pattern from the dropdown 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, Hitachi VSP storage resources are discovered and monitoring is enabled as per the configured metric criteria. The VSP storage resource appears in the Hitachi VSP category in the Infrastructure page.

What to do next

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

  • View the integration: Go to Infrastructure > Resources.
  • Add new configurations for monitoring additional devices.

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

  • Validate that the resource was successfully added to OpsRamp.
  • View metrics graphs from the Infrastructure > Metrics.
  • The graph plotted for each metric that is enabled in the configuration.
  • Alerts generated for metrics that are configured as per defined integration.
