Pinned topic SVC / V7000 performance monitoring

‏2013-09-11T09:43:06Z |

Hi all,

I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but I wondered if you could recommend a SAN historic/performance utility that is better than the one within the SVC and V7000?

To be honest, I'm surprised that there isn't something better already incorporated within either of the SAN components.

I have downloaded SVCMON, but it doesn't really produce the right kind of output than I can use.

I've had a Google around, but would rather go by recommendation.

Thanks,

Mark

    We have tried multple tools (like SVCMon, own scripts etc), but at the end there are two good tools. These are TPC and intelligmagic. But these do have a price.

    Hi, I forgot to ask ... do you know if there is a trial / trial license for TPC?

     

    Thanks,

    Mark,

    You might ask your IBM Business partner.. Maybe you can aks them to tun a POC.

    Hi, yeah, I guessed they would come at a cost ... nothing good is free these days! ;-)

    Thanks for the reply
