Introduction

The Hitachi Operations Center Analyzer detail view (Analyzer detail view) database is a high speed, size-optimized NoSQL database with extremely effective storage and retrieval capabilities. It has the capacity to store time series data with a fine precision for an extended duration, including minute-level data. An expressive, potent, and succinct query language can be used to query this data (MQL). MQL differs from the widely used Structured Query Language because of its distinctive design (SQL).

The Analyzer detail view REST API allows you to build an application around the Analyzer detail view database.

The following diagram shows the architecture of the analyzer detail view REST API server.

Default Monitoring Configurations

Hitachi VSP OpCenter Detailview has default Global Device Management Policies, Global Templates, Global Monitors and Global metrics in OpsRamp. Users can customize these default monitoring configurations as per their 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

    OpsRamp has a Global Device Management Policy for each Native Type of VSP OpsCenter Detailview. You 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: hitachi-vsp-opscenter-detailview Hitachi VSP Port - 1 (i.e, appName = hitachi-vsp-opscenter-detailview, nativeType = Hitachi VSP Port, version = 1)

  2. Default Global Templates

    OpsRamp has a Global template for each Native Type of VSP OpsCenter Detailview. You 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: hitachi-vsp-opscenter-detailview Hitachi VSP Port Template - 1 (i.e, appName = hitachi-vsp-opscenter-detailview, nativeType = Hitachi VSP Port, version = 1)

  3. Default Global Monitors available

    OpsRamp has a Global Monitors for each Native Type which has monitoring support. You 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: Hitachi VSP Port Monitor hitachi-vsp-opscenter-detailview Hitachi VSP Port 1 (i.e, monitorKey = Hitachi VSP Port Monitor Monitor, appName = hitachi-vsp-opscenter-detailview, nativeType = Hitachi VSP Port, version = 1)

Configure and Install the Hitachi VSP OpCenter Detailview Integration

  1. From All Clients, select a client.
  2. Go to Setup > Account.
  3. Select the Integrations and Apps tab.

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
  • If App Failure Notifications are enabled, an alert will be sent, however, either OpsCenter Detailview Gateway IP Address configurations or OpsCenter Detailview Manager IP Address configurations should be provided.
  • Application will send any duplicate/repeat failure alert notification for every 6 hours.
  • Application cannot control monitoring pause/resume actions based on above alerts Metrics can be used to monitor OpsCenter Detailview resources and can generate alerts based on the threshold values.
  • OpsCenter Detailview Event/Alert polling will start 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 OpsCenter Detailview Severity with OpsRamp Severities as part of Alert Severity Mapping configuration file. Users can modify them as per their use-case at any point of time from the application configuration page. Possible OpsRamp Severities are Critical, Warning, Ok, Info.
  • In OpsCenter Detailview, few resource names are null. For them, we are mapping id as resource name.
  • Support for Macro replacement for threshold breach alerts (i.e, customisation for threshold breach alert’s subject, description).
  • Component level thresholds can be configured on each resource level.
  • No support of showing activity log and applied time.
  • Support for the option to get Latest snapshot metric.
