If you have updated your storage capacity with the new TS4500 tape library that can hold up to 5.5 PBs of storage in one frame, you can now monitor it from your iphone. You will need to install IBM Storage Mobile Dashboard from the app store or update the app if you already have it installed.
The TS4500 tape library is now supported as shown in the list below under IBM Storage Mobile Dashboard. Select the cog wheel icon (in the upper left of the display) --> Systems --> Add System to get the log in options for your TS4500.
