Monitoring your SONAS cluster resources is key to ensuring all components are functioning at their optimum level.
Malvern, PA (PRWEB) July 01, 2014
Galileo Performance Explorer™—a cloud-based performance monitoring tool developed by the ATS Group for server and storage system analysis—is featured in the latest IBM® Redbooks® on Scale Out Network Attached Storage (SONAS) monitoring tools.
This technical publication provides an introduction to using Galileo along with scenarios for monitoring the SONAS environment. IBM Redbooks explains how Galileo easily collects valuable resource configuration, utilization, and performance information as well as capturing growth trends over time.
The new agent for IBM SONAS is the latest release of Galileo, which charts performance of your SONAS controller in 92 unique charts addressing 101 different metrics. This set of charts enables you to view storage configurations and capacity while tracking performance over time, from a single pane of glass. These charts provide easy access to the information needed to monitor and manage petabytes of SONAS storage capacity more efficiently.
“Monitoring your SONAS cluster resources is key to ensuring all components are functioning at their optimum level,” says Chris Churchey, co-founder of the ATS Group. “We believe that Galileo offers a complete graphical representation of performance and vital configuration information for the entire SONAS environment, at your fingertips.”
Galileo also provides an agent for IBM Storwize V7000 Unified, allowing customized dashboard snapshots of the complete V7000 Unified system at-a-glance. Over 80 storage performance metrics provide essential cluster statistics such as I/O throughput, metadata operations, client network throughput, quotas, shares, disk, pool and file system usage data.
All Galileo capabilities are accessible for evaluation via a free 30-Day Trial program.
