Monitoring

PureStorage

To effectively monitor PureStorage arrays, LogicMonitor uses the PurityOS REST API v 1.4. Here's how you get these devices configured for use with LogicMonitor:

  1. Add the device to your LogicMonitor account using either the Wizard or Expert mode.
  2. Using either the PureStorage GUI or CLI, sign in with administrative credentials and create a new userid with read-only access to the device. You might name this user "LogicMonitor" for clarity.
  3. Create an API Token for the LogicMonitor user. You can do so via the Purity GUI via "System > Users > Create API Token" or on the CLI using "pureadmin create ‐–api‐token". Your token should look something like:523eb429-7432-3425-bb12-5fe45ba66416.
  4. Associate your PureStorage API Token with your device by adding it as a device property of the name purestorage.apitoken.pass.

 

The PureStorage datasources will apply to your device based on the creation of this apitoken device property. So once you complete step four you're good to go.
