Unisphere VMAX Port Group dashboard

hello,

is there a way to add a dashboard in VMAX unisphere Performance to see quickly the perf stats on Port Group ?

in SPA 2.2... it was possible with snapshot/trend vu to go on PG and to have quickly the ios + mbs + SG repartition... (see capture screen)

with last version of VMAX unisphere 1.6.1.4, EMC add dashboard called "EMC summary dashboard" which is realy good idea, but still missing information of Port Group.

regards, laurent.

here vu of SPA 2.2...

Re: Unisphere VMAX Port Group dashboard

Replying to hopefully bump this back on the radar.  I, too, would like to see some port group-based dashboards as troubleshooting using only individual FAs is tedious at best.

Re: Unisphere VMAX Port Group dashboard

I tried to check this and you are correct, we do not seem to have what SPA used to, in Unisphere. Can I request both to kindly raise an enhancement request so that this can be brought to engineering's notice?

You can do so by going to http://powerlink.emc.com/ and navigating to Home > Support > Request Support > Request a Product Enhancement.
Thanks!
Roshan Raju.

Hi Roshan,

Thanks! I submitted an enhancement request this afternoon. Will I hear back from engineering regarding the request?

Re: Unisphere VMAX Port Group dashboard

Hello Chis,

Thanks for that. I would not be able to assure you that and also not the right person to answer that. But I do know that there is a team that monitors all the enhancement requests and these requests are weighed in by engineering depending on various factors (product design change/cost/effort, etc).

I have seen one of my requests going through and saw the feature added in 1.6 of Unisphere for VMAX . So there is a good chance of it coming through.

I can also request you to bring this to the notice of your local EMC team as they can also request engineering via internal EMC channels.
Hope it helps!

Regards,

Roshan Raju.

Re: Unisphere VMAX Port Group dashboard

Bob Rankin with EMC contacted me regarding this request, we went over what I felt was missing and sent him a link to this thread.  From our discussion, it sounds like the feature could be added fairly easily.  Let's hope that is the case!

Re: Unisphere VMAX Port Group dashboard

In the meantime I've been using the following command and just doing the math on a spreadsheet.

     symstat -type PORT -dir all -i 30 -c 6
