Introduction to EMC ECS Monitoring
Dell EMC ECS (Elastic Cloud Storage) is an object storage platform. LogicMonitor can monitor many aspects of your Dell EMC ECS cluster using the EMC ECS REST API. Monitoring capabilities span both cluster-level (storage capacity, storage pools, replication groups) and node-level (node processes, node disks, etc) metrics.
From the LogicMonitor Repository, import all EMC ECS LogicModules, which are listed in the LogicModules in Package section of this support article.
Add Devices Into Monitoring
Add your EMC ECS VDC nodes 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 EMC ECS platform. These credentials must belong to an EMC ECS user account that has been assigned the following minimum permissions:
Once a user account is established, the following properties must be set on the EMC ECS device(s) within LogicMonitor. For more information on setting properties, see Device Properties.
Enable Cluster-Level Monitoring
To turn on cluster-level monitoring, set the emc.ecs.cluster.node property to "TRUE" on one of the VDC nodes. Any node can be used to report cluster-level metrics.
Enable Node-Level Monitoring
To turn on node-level monitoring for one or more nodes in the cluster, set the node's system.hostname or system.displayname property (or the resolvable hostname) to match the node's FQDN, as presented by the EMC REST API.
LogicModules in Package
LogicMonitor's package contains the following LogicModules. Please ensure that all of these LogicModules are imported into your LogicMonitor platform.
When setting alert thresholds on the various metrics tracked by this package, 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 alert thresholds, see Tuning Alert Thresholds.
