Introduction

Manager

PowerFlex Manager provides IT operations management for Dell EMC PowerFlex rack and Dell EMC PowerFlex appliance. Efficiency increases by reducing time-consuming manual tasks that are required to manage system operations. You can use PowerFlex Manager to deploy and manage both new and existing environments.

PowerFlex Manager is distributed as a virtual appliance that runs a collection of interacting web applications that communicate through the REST interfaces. The PowerFlex Manager UI resides on the virtual appliance and provides full browser-based GUI access to interact with the PowerFlex Manager through the REST interfaces described in this guide.

Note: If you have a licensed version of PowerFlex Manager, this can be integrated with any custom UI or accessed through programs to enhance your automation experience.

Gateway

The REST API is served from the PowerFlex Gateway (which includes the REST gateway). The PowerFlex Gateway can be installed on any operating system that supports PowerFlex for its core components (MDM/SDS/SDC/LIA/XCACHE). PowerFlex Gateway connects to a single MDM and serves requests by querying the MDM and reformatting the answers it receives from the MDM in a RESTful manner, back to a REST client. PowerFlex Gateway requires the MDM username and password for the login request. In response, the login returns a token, which is used for the subsequent authentications for other requests. The PowerFlex REST API supports PowerFlex SCLI commands. The responses returned by the PowerFlex Gateway are in JSON format.

The API is available as part of the PowerFlex Gateway package. If you use the PowerFlex Installer to install PowerFlex, the PowerFlex Gateway is already installed and configured with the MDM details.

Pre-Requisites

OpsRamp Classic Gateway version 12.0.1 and above.

Default monitoring configurations

Dell PowerFlex has default Global Device Management Policies, Global Templates, Global Monitors and Global metrics in OpsRamp. You can customize these default monitoring configurations as per your business use cases by cloning respective global templates and global Device Management Policies. OpsRamp recommends doing this activity before installing the application to avoid noise alerts and data.

  1. Default Global Device Management Policies available

OpsRamp has a Global Device Management Policy for each Native Type of Dell PowerFlex. We can find those Device Management Policies at Setup -> Resources -> Device Management Policies -> Search with suggested names in global scope. Each Device Management Policy follows below naming convention:

{appName nativeType - version}

Ex: dell-powerflex Dell PowerFlex Gateway - 1 (i.e, appName = dell-powerflex, nativeType = Dell PowerFlex Gateway, version = 1)

  1. Default Global Templates available

OpsRamp has a Global template for each Native Type of Dell PowerFlex. We can find those templates at Setup -> Monitoring -> Templates -> Search with suggested names in global scope. Each template follows below naming convention:

{appName nativeType 'Template' - version}

Ex : dell-powerflex Dell PowerFlex Gateway Template - 1 (i.e, appName = dell-powerflex, nativeType = Dell PowerFlex Gateway, version = 1)

  1. Default Global Monitors available

OpsRamp has a Global Monitors for each Native Type which has monitoring support. We can find those monitors at Setup -> Monitoring -> Monitors -> Search with suggested names in global scope. Each Monitors follows below naming convention:

{monitorKey appName nativeType - version}

Ex : Dell PowerFlex Gateway Monitor dell-powerflex Dell PowerFlex Gateway 1 (i.e, monitorKey = Dell PowerFlex Gateway Monitor Monitor, appName = dell-powerflex, nativeType = Dell PowerFlex Gateway, version = 1)

Risks, Limitations & Assumptions

  • Application can handle Critical/Recovery failure notifications for below two cases when user enables App Failure Notifications in configuration
    • Connectivity Exception
    • Authentication Exception
  • Application will not send any duplicate/repeat failure alert notification until the already existing critical alert is recovered.
  • Application cannot control monitoring pause/resume actions based on above alerts Metrics can be used to monitor Dell PowerFlex resources and can generate alerts based on the threshold values.
  • Dell PowerFlex Event/Alert polling will be started only if the user enables Alert Polling in configuration. Possible values of Alert Severity Filter configuration property are ALERT_LOW,ALERT_MEDIUM,ALERT_HIGH.
  • OpsRamp has given sample mappings to map Dell PowerFlex Severity with OpsRamp Severities as part of Alert Severity Mapping configuration filed. User can modify them as per their use-case at any point of time from application configuration page. Possible OpsRamp Severities are Critical, Warning, Ok, Info.
