Come join our live training webinar every other Wednesday at 11am PST and hear LogicMonitor experts explain best practices and answer common questions. We understand these are uncertain times, and we are here to help!
LogicMonitor offers out-of-the-box monitoring for the Dell EMC XtremIO platform. Our monitoring suite uses the REST API to query the XMS (XtremIO Management Server) for a wide variety of health and performance metrics.
Dell EMC XtremIO is Dell EMC’s high-volume, high-capacity all-flash enterprise storage platform. This platform is primarily designed for applications that benefit from its data reduction and copy data management capabilities.
Add your XMS (XtremIO Management Server) hosts into monitoring. For more information on adding resources into monitoring, see Adding Devices.
LogicMonitor must provide API credentials in order to successfully access the XMS resource's data. These credentials should belong to an XtremIO XMS API user account with read-only permissions.
The following custom properties must be set on the XtremIO resource within LogicMonitor. For more information on setting properties, see Resource and Instance Properties.
From the LogicMonitor public repository, import all Dell EMC XtremIO 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.
Once the LogicModules are imported (assuming all previous setup requirements have been met), data collection will automatically commence.
In July of 2020, LogicMonitor released a new suite of XtremIO LogicModules. The new suite does requires fewer properties and no special device grouping, providing the following advantages:
The release of the new suite serves to deprecate the following DataSources:
If you are currently monitoring your XtremIO devices using any of these legacy DataSources, you will not experience data loss upon importing the new DataSources. This is because DataSource names have been changed to eliminate module overwriting.
However, you will collect duplicate data and receive duplicate alerts for as long as both sets of DataSources are active. For this reason, we recommend that you disable the above-listed DataSources after importing the new set of DataSources and confirming that they are working as intended in your environment.
When a DataSource is disabled, it stops querying the host and generating alerts, but maintains all historical data. At some point in time, you may want to delete the legacy DataSources altogether, but consider this move carefully as all historical data will be lost upon deletion. For more information on disabling DataSources, see Disabling Monitoring for a DataSource or Instance.
LogicMonitor's package for XtremIO 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.
