He complains of random performance problems .
In the SPcollects , there are few thousands messages like this :
4600 'Faults' called by ' Navi User supervision' (172.16.10.13) with result: Success (Navisphere Secure CLI command: )
So I have 2 questions :
1st How to find and debug theses messages ?
2nd Are these messages may affect performance ?
Looks like SP collects need to be investigated for this alert; I would suggest you to open a Service request with EMC Support team.
The message in the logs is an indication of a user sending a request to the array to display the faults on the array. This is coming from the host with the IP address listed in the message. This looks like some kind of monitoring program - see what host 172.16.10.13 is what it's running.
