LogicMonitor’s Dell PowerVault ME4 monitoring package leverages the Dell EMC REST API to monitor the health and performance metrics of the PowerVault ME4 Storage Area Network. LogicMonitor also alerts on the status and health information gathered from the REST API.
As Dell releases newer versions of PowerVault ME4 API, LogicMonitor will test and extend coverage as necessary.
Add your Dell PowerVault ME4 hosts into monitoring. For more information on adding resources into monitoring, see Adding Devices.
LogicMonitor must provide the appropriate credentials in order to successfully access the PowerVault ME4 resource’s data. The credentials must have at least a read-only access to the API.
The following custom properties must be set on the Dell PowerVault ME4 resource within LogicMonitor. For more information on setting properties, see Resource and Instance Properties.
From the LogicMonitor public repository, import all Dell PowerVault ME4 LogicModules, which are listed in the LogicModules in Package section of this support article. If these LogicModules are already present, ensure you have the most recent versions. Data collection will automatically start after all the LogicModules are imported.
The modules in this package are designed with a debug mode embedded in the data collection scripts. If issues occur, turn on debug mode by setting the variable debug to “true” to get more information in the output when testing the script in the Collector Debug Facility. For more information on testing scripts in the Collector Debug Facility, see Script Troubleshooting.
If you are currently monitoring Dell PowerVault ME4 controller ports, updating from version 1.0 to version 1.1 will cause data loss to Compact Flash and Controller Expander instances.
LogicMonitor’s package for Dell PowerVault ME4 consists of the following LogicModules. For full coverage, please ensure that all of these LogicModules are imported into your LogicMonitor platform.
When setting static datapoint thresholds on the various metrics tracked by this package’s DataSources, LogicMonitor follows the technology owner’s best practice KPI recommendations. If necessary, we encourage you to adjust these predefined thresholds to meet the unique needs of your environment. For more information on tuning datapoint thresholds, see Tuning Static Thresholds for Datapoints.
