Terminology Familiarize yourself with commonly used terms.

adapter

A vRealize Operations Manager component that collects performance metrics from an external source such as VMware vCenter or a storage system. Third- party adapters such as the Dell EMC Adapter are installed on the vRealize Operations Manager server to enable creation of adapter instances within vRealize Operations Manager.

adapter instance

A specific external source of performance metrics, such as a specific storage system. An adapter instance resource is an instance of an adapter that has a one- to-one relationship with an external source of data, such as a Dell EMC VNX

storage system.

dashboard

A tab on the home page of the vRealize Operations Manager graphical user interface (GUI). vRealize Operations Manager ships with default dashboards. Dashboards are fully customizable by the end user.

health rating

An overview of the current state of any resource, from an individual operation to an entire enterprise. vRealize Operations Manager checks internal metrics for the resource and uses its proprietary analytics formulas to calculate an overall health score on a scale of 0 to 100.

icon

A pictorial element in a widget that enables a user to perform a specific function. Hover over an icon to display a tooltip that describes the function.

metric

A category of data collected for a resource. For example, the number of read operations per second is one of the metrics collected for each LUN resource.

resource

Any entity in the environment for which vRealize Operations Manager can collect data. For example, LUN 27 is a resource.

resource kind

A general type of a resource, such as LUN or DISK. The resource kind dictates the type of metrics that are collected.

widget

An area of the ESA GUI that displays metrics-related information. Youcan customize widgets for your own environment.

Installation and Licensing 11

Prerequisites Before you install ESA, verify that you have configured your environment according to the requirements in this section.

Software requirements The following software is required:

l A supported version of VMware vRealize Operations Manager Advanced or Enterprise edition as listed in the Dell EMC Simple Support Matrix. Obtain the OVA installation package for vRealize Operations Manager from VMware. Refer to the vRealize Operations Manager vApp Deployment and Configuration Guide on the VMware support page to install the software. ESA does not support Foundation and Standard editions.

l Supported versions of Dell EMC systems and minimum operating environment requirements as listed in the Dell EMC Simple Support Matrix.

l A supported web browser as listed in the release notes for your version of vRealize Operations Manager.

License requirements You must purchase the following licenses:

l VMware license for vRealize Operations Manager (Advanced or Enterprise).

l Dell EMC Enterprise Storage Analytics electronic or physical license. If you purchase an electronic license for ESA, you receive a letter that directs you to an electronic licensing system to activate the software to which you are entitled. Otherwise, you receive a physical license key.

l Dell EMC product licenses. A 90-day trial for all supported products is available with ESA. The 90-day trial provides the same features as licensed products, but after 90 days of use, the adapter stops collecting data. You can add a license at any time. To install software for trial, leave the license field blank.

n Unity and UnityVSA adapter instances do not require you to provide a license in the configuration wizard. The ESA license for the Unity and UnityVSA collector is tracked on the array. In Dell EMC Unisphere, select Settings- > Software and Licenses > License Information to ensure that the ESA license is valid and current.

n Only one Dell EMC Adapter instance is required for VPLEX Local or VPLEX Metro systems. You can monitor both clusters in a VPLEX Metro system by adding a single Dell EMC Adapter instance for one of the clusters. Adding an Dell EMC Adapter instance for each cluster in a VPLEX Metro system introduces unnecessary stress on the system.

System configuration

User accounts

l StorageTo create an Dell EMC Adapter instance for a storage array, you must have a user account that allows you to connect to the storage array or Dell EMC SMI-S Provider. For example, to add an Dell EMC Adapter for a VNX array, use a global account with an operator or administrator role (a local account does not work).

l vCenterTo create an Dell EMC Adapter instance for vCenter (where Adapter Type = Dell EMC Adapter and Connection Type = VMware vSphere), you must have an account that allows you access to vCenter and

Installation and Licensing

12 Dell EMC Enterprise Storage Analytics for vRealize Operations 4.5 Product Guide

the objects it monitors. In this case, vCenter (not the Dell EMC Adapter) enforces access credentials. To create an Dell EMC Adapter instance for vCenter, use an account assigned with a minimum role of Read-Only at the vCenter root and enable propagation of permissions to descendant objects. Depending on the size of the vCenter, wait approximately 30 seconds before testing the Dell EMC Adapter. More information about user accounts and access rights is available in the vSphere API/SDK documentation (see information about authentication and authorization for VMware ESXi and vCenter Server). Ensure that the adapter points to the vCenter server that vRealize Operations Manager monitors.

DNS configuration

To use the Dell EMC Adapter, the vRealize Operations Manager vApp requires network connectivity to the storage systems to be monitored. DNS must be correctly configured on the vRealize Operations Manager server to enable hostname resolution by the Dell EMC Adapter.

Time zone and synchronization settings

Ensure time synchronization for all ESA resources by using Network Time Protocol (NTP). Also, set correct time zones for ESA resources. Failure to observe these practices might affect the collection of performance metrics and topology updates.

Installing the Dell EMC Adapter The ESA installation procedure installs the Dell EMC Adapter and the dashboards.

Before you begin

Obtain the PAK file for the Dell EMC Adapter from Dell EMC Online Support.

Note

If You use Internet Explorer, the installation file downloads as a ZIP file but functions the same way as the PAK file.

WARNING

When you upgrade Dell EMC Enterprise Storage Analytics the standard Dell EMC dashboards are overwritten. To customize a standard Dell EMC dashboard, clone it, rename it, and then customize it.

Procedure

1. Save the PAK file in a temporary folder.

2. Start the vRealize Operations Manager administrative user interface in your web browser and log in as an administrator.

For example, enter https://vROPs_ip_address.

3. Select Administration > Solutions and then click Add (+) to upload the PAK file.

4. When the message appears that the PAK file is ready to install, complete the wizard.

Depending on your system's performance, the installation can take from 5 to 15 minutes.

5. When the installation completes, click Finish.

The Dell EMC Adapter appears in the list of installed solutions.

Installing Navisphere CLI For vRealize Operations Manager 6.1 or later, the Navisphere CLI (naviseccli) is automatically installed on all Data Nodes that are available during the initial installation. If you add more nodes in the vRealize Operations Manager cluster after ESA is installed or if you are using vRealize Operations Manager 6.0 or earlier, use this procedure to manually install naviseccli.

l Install naviseccli before you add the Dell EMC Adapter instance to vRealize Operations Manager. If naviseccli is not installed, errors could might in scaled-out vCenter environments that consist of a Master Node and multiple Data Nodes. Naviseccli is automatically installed on the Master Node. However, because the Data Node collects metrics, the Dell EMC Adapter might report errors if naviseccli is not installed.

l For VNX Block systems, install the naviseccli in the Data Node that you assign to collect metrics for VNX systems.

The naviseccli-bin-xxx-rpm file is included in the ESA package.

Installation and Licensing

Installing the Dell EMC Adapter 15

Procedure

1. Enable SSH for both master and data nodes.

Refer to Using SSH to connect to vRealize Operations Manager on page 53 for instructions.

2. Extract the PAK file by using decompression software such as WinZip.

3. Copy the naviseccli-bin-version.rpm file (for example, naviseccli- bin-7.33.1.0.33-x64.rpm)to a target directory in the data node.

If you are using Windows, you can use WinSCP for the copy operation.

4. Establish a secure connection to the data node and change to the target directory.

5. Run this command: rpm -i naviseccli-bin-version.rpm where version is the appropriate version of the naviseccli utility for the node.

6. Repeat this procedure to install naviseccli in other nodes, as required.

Adapter instances Adapter instances specify the adapter type and the information that is needed for vRealize Operations Manager to identify and access resources.

The vCenter adapter instance enables other adapter instances to display visible connections between the VMware objects and the array objects.

Dell EMC Adapter instances provide access to Dell EMC resources.

Note

After adapter instances are created, the vRealize Operations Manager Collector requires several minutes to collect statistics, depending on the size of the storage array. Large storage array configurations require up to 45 minutes to collect metrics and resources and update dashboards. Once the initial data is collected, subsequent statistical collections run quickly.

Adding an Dell EMC Adapter instance for vCenter To view health trees for the storage environment from the virtual environment, install an Dell EMC Adapter instance for vCenter before installing other Dell EMC resource adapter instances.

Install a separate instance for each vCenter that the vRealize Operations Manager environment monitors.

Dell EMC dashboards Dashboards provide a graphic representation of the status and relationships of selected objects.

The standard dashboards are delivered as templates. If a dashboard is accidentally deleted or changed, you can generate a new one. Use the standard vRealize Operations Manager dashboard customization features to create additional dashboards if required (some restrictions might apply).

From the vRealize Operations Manager main menu, select Dashboards > All Dashboards > Dell EMC. The available dashboards are listed in the navigation panel on the left.

Dashboards include various widgets, depending on the type of dashboard.

l Resource TreeShows the end-to-end topology and health of resources across vSphere and storage domains. Configure the hierarchy that is shown by changing the widget settings; changing these settings does not alter the underlying object relationships in the database. Select any resource in this widget to view related resources in the stack.

l Health TreeProvides a navigable visualization of resources that have parent or child relationships to the resource you select in the Resource Tree widget. Single- click to select resources, or double-click to change the navigation focus.

l Sparkline ChartShows sparklines for the metrics of the resource you select in the Resource Tree widget.

l Metric PickerLists all the metrics that are collected for the resource you select in the Resource Tree widget. Double-click a metric to create a graph of the metric in the Metric Chart widget.

l Metric ChartGraphs the metrics you select in the Metric Picker widget. Display multiple metrics simultaneously in a single graph or in multiple graphs.

l Resource Events (VNX/VNXe only)Shows a graph that illustrates the health of the selected object over a period of time. Object events are labeled on the graph. Hover over or click a label to display event details, including event ID, start time, cancel time, trigger, resource name, and event details.

Note

The VMware documentation provides instructions for modifying or deleting dashboards to suit your environment.

l Be sure to rename any dashboards you modify so that they will not be overwritten during an upgrade.

l If you attempt to modify a component that does not exist, such as a dashboard for a storage system that does not exist in your environment, vRealize Operations Manager generates a generic error message indicating that the task failed.

Dell EMC overview dashboards Overview tabs for Dell EMC resources display a single view of performance and capacity metrics for selected resources that have configured adapter instances. Scoreboards and heat maps group the contents by adapter instance.

Heatmaps and scoreboards use color to provide a high-level view of performance and capacity metrics for selected devices. Tolerances are displayed in the key at the bottom of each heatmap. Hover your mouse over specific areas of a graph or heatmap to see more details.

l For measurable metrics, colors range from green to shades of yellow and orange to red.

l Metrics with varied values that cannot be assigned a range show relative values from lowest (light blue or light green) to highest (dark blue or dark green). Because the range of values for relative metrics have no lower or upper limits, the numerical difference between light and dark blue or green might be minimal.

Note

It is normal for white boxes to appear in the heatmap:

l While the metrics are being gathered for an adapter instance.

l When the adapter itself or an individual resource has been deleted and the resources have not been removed from the Environment Overview page.

The following figures show examples of Overview dashboards.

Dashboard XChange The Dashboard XChange is a user community page for users to exchange Dell EMC Enterprise Storage Analytics custom dashboards.

ESA provides a set of default dashboards that provide you with a variety of functional views into your storage environment. You can also create custom dashboards to visualize collected data according to your own requirements. The Dashboard XChange on ESA Community is an extension of that feature that enables you to:

l Export custom dashboards to the Dashboard XChange to benefit a wider Dell EMC Enterprise Storage Analytics community

l Import custom dashboards from the Dashboard XChange to add value to your own environment

The Dashboard XChange, hosted on the Dell EMC Community Network, also hosts dashboards designed by Dell EMC to showcase widget functions that might satisfy a particular use case in your environment. Import these dashboards into your existing environment to enhance the functionality offered by Dell EMC Enterprise Storage Analytics and edit imported dashboards to meet the specific requirements of your own storage environment.

The Dashboard XChange provides these resources to help you create custom dashboards:

l How-to video that shows how to create custom dashboards

l Best practices guide that provides detailed guidelines for dashboard creation

l Slide show that demonstrates how to import dashboards from or export them to the Dashboard XChange

Note that there are XChange Zones for supported platforms.

Using badges to monitor resources vRealize Operations Manager provides badges that enable you to analyze capacity, workload, and stress of supported resource objects.

The badges are based on a default policy that is defined in vRealize Operations Manager for each resource type:

l Workload badgeDefines the current workload of a monitored resource. It displays a breakdown of the workload based on supported metrics.

l Stress badgeDefines the workload over a period of time. It displays one-hour time slices over the period of a week. The color of each slice reflects the stress status of the resource.

l Capacity badgeDisplays the percentage of a resource that is currently consumed and the remaining capacity for the resource.

Note

Depending on the resource and supported metrics, full capacity is sometimes defined as 100% (for example, Busy %); it can also be defined by the maximum observed value (for example, Total Operations IO/s).

l Time Remaining badgeCalculated from the Capacity badge and estimates when the resource will reach full capacity.

5. Click Save.

Understanding event correlation Understanding how events, alerts, and resources are related helps with troubleshooting. Event correlation is available for VNX Block and VNX File.

Dell EMC Adapter instances monitor events on certain resources, which appear as alerts in vRealize Operations Manager.

vRealize Operations Manager manages the life cycle of an alert and cancels an active alert based on its rules. For example, vRealize Operations Manager might cancel an alert if Dell EMC Enterprise Storage Analytics no longer reports it.

Events that vRealize Operations Manager generates influence the health score calculation for certain resources. For example, in the Details pane for the selected resource, events that contribute to the health score appear as alerts.

vRealize Operations Manager generates events and associates them only with the resources that triggered them. vRealize Operations Manager determines how the alerts appear and how they affect the health scores of the related resources.

Note

When you remove a resource, vRealize Operations Manager automatically removes existing alerts associated with the resource, and the alerts no longer appear in the GUI.

Log Insight overview VMware vRealize Log Insight provides log management for VMware environments. Log Insight includes dashboards for visual display of log information. Content packs extend this capability by providing dashboard views, alerts, and saved queries.

For information about working with Log Insight, refer to the Log Insight documentation.

Log Insight configuration Send the ESA logs stored on the vRealize Operations Manager virtual machine to the Log Insight instance to facilitate performance analysis and perform root cause analysis of problems.

The adapter logs in vRealize Operations Manager are stored in a subdirectory of the / storage/vcops/log/adapters/EmcAdapter directory. The directory name and the log file are created by concatenating the adapter instance name with the adapter instance ID.

Note that the adapter name parsing changes dots and spaces into underscores. The adapter instance ID is concatenated to create the subdirectory name as well as the log file name.

Multiple instances of each of the adapter types appear because ESA creates a new directory and log file for the Test Connection part of discovery as well as for the analytics log file.

The Test Connection logs have a null name associated with the adapter ID.

You can forward any logs of interest to Log Insight, but remember that forwarding logs consumes bandwidth.

Sending logs to Log Insight Set up syslog-ng to send ESA logs to Log Insight.

Before you begin

Import the vRealize Operations Manager content pack into Log Insight. This context- aware content pack includes content for supported Dell EMC Adapter instances.

VMware uses syslog-ng for sending logs to Log Insight. Search online for syslog- ng documentation. Refer to the Dell EMC Simple Support Matrix for the Dell EMC products that support Log Insight. The steps that follow represent an example of sending VNX and VMAX logs to Log Insight.

Procedure

1. Access the syslog-ng.conf directory:

cd /etc/syslog-ng 2. Save a copy of the file:

cp syslog-ng.conf syslog-ng.conf.noli

7. Log in to Log Insight to ensure that the logs are being sent.

Error handling and event logging Errors in the Dell EMC Enterprise Storage Analytics operation are written to log files available through vRealize Operations Manager.

Error logs are available in the /data/vcops/log directory. This directory contains the vRealize Operations Manager logs.

Adapter logs (including adapters other than the Dell EMC Adapter) are in /data/ vcops/log/adapters.

View logs relating to Dell EMC Enterprise Storage Analytics operation in the vRealize Operations Manager GUI. Create and download a support bundle used for troubleshooting.

Viewing error logs ESA enables you to view error log files for each adapter instance.

Procedure

1. Start the vRealize Operations Manager custom user interface and log in as administrator.

For example in a web browser, type: http://vROPs_ip_address/vcops-web- ent

2. Select Administration > Support > Logs.

3. Expand the Collector folder, then the adapters folder, then the EmcAdapter folder. Log files appear under the EmcAdapter folder. Double- click a log entry in the log tree.

Entries appear in the Log Content pane.

Creating and downloading a support bundle Procedure

1. Select Administration > Support > Support Bundles.

The bundle encapsulates all necessary logs.

2. Click the Create Support Bundle icon (+).

3. Select the bundle checkbox and click OK.

4. Click OK to generate the support bundle.

The bundle appears in the Support Bundles window.

5. When the bundle Status indicates Succeeded, select the bundle and click the Download Support Bundle icon (down arrow).

The bundle is downloaded to your local drive.

Log file sizes and rollover counts Logs for each Dell EMC Adapter instance are in folders under /data/vcops/log/ adapters/EmcAdapter, one folder for each adapter instance.

For example, if you have five Dell EMC Adapter instances, a directory (folder) appears for each of them.

Log files in this directory follow this naming convention:

Troubleshooting

Error handling and event logging 49

EMC_adapter_name-adapter_instance_ID.log.rollover_count For example: VNX_File-131.log.9 The log filename begins with the name of the Dell EMC Adapter instance. Filenames beginning with EmcAdapter are common to all connectors.

The number that follows the Dell EMC Adapter instance name is the adapter instance ID, which corresponds to a VMware internal ID.

The last number in the filename indicates the rollover increment. When the default log file size is reached, the system starts a new log file with a new increment. The lowest- numbered increment represents the most recent log. Each rollover is 10 MB (default value, recommended). Ten rollovers (default value) are allowed; the system deletes the oldest log files.

Configuring log file sizes and rollover counts Change the default values for all adapter instances or for a specific adapter instance.

Before you begin

CAUTION

Dell EMC recommends that you not increase the 10 MB default value for the log file size. Increasing this value makes the log file more difficult to load and process as it grows in size. If more retention is necessary, increase the rollover count instead.

Procedure

1. On the vRealize Operations Manager virtual machine, find and edit the /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/plugins/inbound/emc-vcops- adapter/conf/adapter.properties file.

2. Locate these Dell EMC Adapter instance properties:

com.emc.vcops.adapter.log.size=10MB com.emc.vcops.adapter.log.count=10

3. To change the properties for all Dell EMC Adapter instances, edit only the log size or log count values. For example:

com.emc.vcops.adapter.log.size=12MB com.emc.vcops.adapter.log.count=15

4. To change the properties for a specific Dell EMC Adapter instance, insert the Dell EMC Adapter instance ID as shown in this example:

com.emc.vcops.adapter.356.log.size=8MB com.emc.vcops.adapter.356.log.count=15

Activating configuration changes Activate changes you made to the log file size or rollover count for an Dell EMC Adapter instance.

Procedure

1. In vRealize Operations Manager, select Administration > Configuration > Inventory Explorer > Adapter Instances > Dell EMC Adapter Instance.

Troubleshooting

50 Dell EMC Enterprise Storage Analytics for vRealize Operations 4.5 Product Guide

2. Under List, select a resource from the list and click the Edit Object icon.

The Edit Object dialog box opens.

3. Click OK .

This step activates the changes you made to the log file size or rollover count for the Dell EMC Adapter instance.

Verifying configuration changes Verify the changes you made to the log file size or rollover counts of an Dell EMC Adapter instance.

Procedure

1. Log into vRealize Operations Manager.

2. Change directories to /data/vcops/log/adapters/EmcAdapter.

3. Verify the changes you made to the size of the log files or the number of saved rollover backups.

If you changed:

l Only the default properties for log file size and rollover count, all adapter instance logs reflect the changes.

l Properties for a specific adapter instance, only the logs for that adapter instance reflect the changes.

l Log file size or rollover count to higher values, you do not see the resulting changes until those thresholds are crossed.

Managing the collection of XtremIO snapshots XtremIO snapshots are collected by default. In some environments, an excessive number of snapshots in the system can cause performance issues for the vRealize Operations server. To avoid an excess of snapshots, turn off collection of XtremIO snapshots.

Before you begin

For multiple XtremIO adapter instances, use the instructions in Finding adapter instance IDs on page 46 to find the IDs for the adapters you want to modify.

Procedure

1. Log in to the vRealize Operations server using SSH.

Using SSH to connect to vRealize Operations Manager on page 53 provides instructions.

2. Open /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/plugins/inbound/emc-vcops- adapter/conf/adapter.properties

3. Change: com.emc.vcops.adapter.xtremio.skip.snapshots=false to com.emc.vcops.adapter.xtremio.skip.snapshots=true.

For multiple XtremIO adapter instances, you can specify the adapter ID in the key to make changes to only the corresponding adapter instances. For example, to skip collecting snapshots for the XtremIO adapter instance with ID 623, modify the entry to: com.emc.vcops.adapter. 623.xtremio.skip.snapshots=true

4. Follow the steps in Activating configuration changes on page 50 to save your changes.

Troubleshooting

Managing the collection of XtremIO snapshots 51

Snapshot collection is turned off.

Note

If the vRealize Operations environment is a multi-node cluster setup, change the configuration for each node.

Editing the Collection Interval for a resource From the vRealize Operations Manager user interface, edit the Collection Interval for a resource.

The default interval time is five minutes. Changing this time affects the frequency of collection times for metrics, but the Dell EMC Adapter recognizes the change only if the resource is the Dell EMC Adapter instance. This is normal vRealize Operations Manager behavior.

Note

For Unity systems, the maximum collection interval is five minutes.

The vRealize Operations Manager online help provides instructions for configuring Resource Management settings.

Configuring the thread count for an adapter instance Configure the thread count for an adapter instance for best performance.

Dell EMC recommends that only administrative personnel perform this procedure. If the thread count is not specified in adapter.properties, then the thread count = vCPU count +2. The maximum allowed thread count is 20.

Procedure

1. Access the /usr/vmware-vcops/user/plugins/inbound/emc-vcops- adapter/conf/adapter.properties file.

2. Open and edit the thread count property for all adapter instances or for a specific adapter instance.

l If you want to edit the thread count property for all adapter instances, change the com.emc.vcops.adapter.threadcount property.

l If you want to edit the thread count property for a specific adapter instance, insert the adapter instance ID after adapter and change the property value. For example: com.emc.vcops.adapter.7472.threadcount.

Note

To find an adapter instance ID, refer to Finding adapter instance IDs on page 46.

3. To activate the property change, restart the adapter instance in the vRealize Operations Manager.

Troubleshooting metrics and scoreboards

Table 4 Metrics and scoreboard questions

Symptom Problem or question Resolution

Unisphere Analyzer Must the Unisphere Analyzer for VNX be running to collect metrics?

No. VNX Block metrics are gathered through naviseccli commands. VNX File metrics are gathered through CLI commands. However, statistics logging must be enabled on each SP on VNX Block, and statistics logging has a performance impact on the array. No additional services are required for VNX File.

Primary SP or CS down Will ESA continue to collect VNX statistics if the primary SP or CS goes down?

Yes. ESA automatically collects metrics from the secondary CS if the CS fails over. The credentials on the secondary CS must match the credentials on the primary CS.

Resources and metrics per node

How many resources and metrics are supported per node in vRealize Operations Manager?

l Small Node4vCPU, 16 GB Memory. Supports 2,000 objects and 1,000,000 metrics.

l Medium Node8vCPU, 32 GB Memory. Supports 6,000 objects and 3,000,000 metrics.

l Large Node16vCPU, 64 GB Memory. Supports 10,000 objects and 5,000,000 metrics.

Health score is 0 What does it mean when a resource has a health score of 0?

The resource is either down or not available.

Blue question mark What does the blue question mark in the health score indicate?

A blue question mark indicates that vRealize Operations Manager was unable to poll that resource. It will retry during the next polling interval.

Troubleshooting

Using SSH to connect to vRealize Operations Manager 53

Table 4 Metrics and scoreboard questions (continued)

Symptom Problem or question Resolution

Health scores How do health scores work? Health scores measure a resource's behavior and grades it on a scale of 0-100. A health score of 100 indicates normal behavior, while a lower health score indicates that the resource is acting abnormally. The resource might not be in an unhealthy state but there is an abnormality. Health scores are calculated by a proprietary algorithm that accounts for several factors, including thresholds and historical statistics. vRealize Operations Manager might take up to 30 days to gather enough information to determine what is considered normal in your environment. Until then, you might not see any changes in your health scores.

FAST Cache heat map How does the FAST Cache heat map work?

The FAST Cache heat maps are based on the FAST Cache read and write hit ratios. This heat map turns red if these ratios are low, indicating that FAST Cache is not being used efficiently. The heat maps turn green when FAST Cache is servicing a high percentage of I/O.

VMAX metrics A VMAX device is not visible and metrics are not collected on a multi-node vRealize Operations cluster for a virtual machine -> VMAX device relationship. The virtual machine -> VMAX device cross-adapter relationship is only supported on single vRealize Operations node because of technical restraints. Metrics for a VMAX device are only displayed if it has a corresponding consumer.

Workaround: Create an extra VMware adapter instance on the node where the VMAX adapter instance is running.

Understanding error messages Learn the meaning of resource down and license errors.

Table 5 Error messages

Symptom Problem or question Resolution

Invalid license error Why do I receive an invalid license error message when I configure the adapter instance for VNX File, even though I purchased the license of the model of the VNX array that I plan to monitor?

The CS might not be reporting the correct model or the array. Log in to the CS and check the array model with the command: /nas/sbin/model. Verify that the returned

array model matches the model on the Right to Use certificate.

Resource down Why are multiple Dell EMC Adapter instances for my storage systems marked as down, even

License keys are specific to the model for which the license was purchased.

Troubleshooting

54 Dell EMC Enterprise Storage Analytics for vRealize Operations 4.5 Product Guide

Table 5 Error messages (continued)

Symptom Problem or question Resolution

though I have added license keys for each of them?

l Verify that you are using the correct license key for the adapter instance.

l After adding a license, click the Test button to test the configuration and validate the license key.

l If you saved the configuration without performing a test and the license is invalid, the adapter instance is marked as Resource down.

l To verify that a valid license exists, select

Environment Overview. The list that appears shows the license status.

Resource down after

upgrade

Why are my Dell EMC Adapter instances marked down after upgrading to the latest version of the Dell EMC Adapter?

Dell EMC Adapter instances require a license to operate. Edit your Dell EMC Adapter instances to add license keys

obtained from Dell EMC. Select Environment Overview > Configuration > Adapter Instances.

Resource down after CS

failover

Why is the VNX File adapter instance marked as down and metric collection stopped after a CS failover?

The failover might have been successful, but the new CS might not be reporting the correct model of the array. This results in a failure to validate the license and all data collection stops. Log in to the CS and check the array model with the command: /nas/sbin/model. If the

model returned does not match the actual model of the array, Primus case emc261291 in the Dell EMC Knowledgebase provides possible solutions.

Understanding resources and relationships Frequently asked questions about resources and relationships within vCenter are answered here.

Table 6 Questions about resources and relationships

Symptom Problem or question Resolution

vCenter resources details

How is the detailed view of vCenter resources affected in ESA?

Any changes in the disk system affects the health of vCenter resources such as virtual machines, but ESA does not show changes in other subsystems. Metrics for other subsystems show either No Data or ?.

Relationships Can I see relationships between my vCenter and Dell EMC storage resources?

Yes. Relationships between resources are not affected and you can see a top to bottom view of the virtual and storage infrastructures if the two are connected.

Deleted resource still appears

I deleted a resource. Why does it still appear in the vRealize Operations Manager?

vRealize Operations Manager does not delete any resources automatically because it retains historical statistics and topology information that might be important to the user. The resource enters an unknown state (blue). To

remove the resource, delete it on the Inventory Explorer page.

Widget Description Green Yellow Orange Red

CPU Health Displays the CPU usage, as a percentage, for each director on the VPLEX system

Note

Generally, a director should stay below 75% CPU usage. Correct an imbalance of CPU usage across directors by adjusting the amount of I/O to the busier directors; make this adjustment by modifying existing storage view configurations. Identify busier volumes and hosts and move them to less busy directors. Alternately, add more director ports to a storage view to create a better load balance across the available directors.

VPLEX metrics Dell EMC Enterprise Storage Analytics provides VPLEX metrics for Cluster, Director, Distributed Device, Engine, Ethernet Port, Extent, FC Port, Local Device, Storage Array, Storage View, Storage Volume, Virtual Volume, and VPLEX Metro.

Table 77 VPLEX metrics for Cluster

Metric group Metric Description

Status Cluster Type Local or Metro.

Status Health State Possible values include:

l OK - Cluster is functioning normally.

l Degraded - Cluster is not functioning at an optimal level. This may indicate non- functioning remote virtual volumes, unhealthy devices or storage volumes, suspended devices, conflicting director count configuration values, or out-of-date devices.

l Unknown - VPLEX cannot determine the cluster's health state, or the state is invalid.

l Major failure - Cluster is failing and some functionality may be degraded or unavailable. This may indicate complete loss of back-end connectivity.

l Minor failure - Cluster is functioning, but some functionality may be degraded. This may indicate one or more unreachable storage volumes.

l Critical failure - Cluster is not functioning and may have failed completely. This may indicate a complete loss of back-end connectivity.

Status Operational Status

During transition periods, the cluster moves from one operational state to another. Possible values include:

l OK - Cluster is operating normally.

l Cluster departure - One or more of the clusters cannot be contacted. Commands affecting distributed storage are refused.

l Degraded - Cluster is not functioning at an optimal level. This may indicate non- functioning remote virtual volumes, unhealthy devices or storage volumes, suspended devices, conflicting director count configuration values, or out-of-date devices.

l Device initializing - If clusters cannot communicate with each other, then the distributed-device will be unable to initialize.

l Device out of date - Child devices are being marked fully out of date. Sometimes this occurs after a link outage.

l Expelled - Cluster has been isolated from the island either manually (by an administrator) or automatically (by a system configuration setting).

l Shutdown - Cluster's directors are shutting down.

l Suspended exports - Some I/O is suspended. This could be result of a link failure or loss of a director. Other states might indicate the true problem. The VPLEX might be waiting for you to confirm the resumption of I/O.

l Transitioning - Components of the software are recovering from a previous incident (for example, the loss of a director or the loss of an inter-cluster link).

Topology Diagrams 181

Topology mapping You can view graphic representations of topology mapping using vRealize Operations Manager health trees. The ESA dashboards use topology mapping to display resources and metrics.

ESA establishes mappings between:

l Storage system components

l Storage system objects and vCenter objects

Topology mapping enables health scores and alerts from storage system components, such as storage processors and disks, to appear on affected vCenter objects, such as LUNs, datastores, and virtual machines. Topology mapping between storage system objects and vCenter objects uses a vCenter adapter instance.

l vRealize Operations Manager does not display devices that are mapped and bound but unused by VMware, VNX, eNAS, or VPLEX.

l If the corresponding Dell EMC vSphere adapter instance is running on the same vRealize Operations Manager appliance, then the vRealize Operations Manager displays devices that are mapped, bound, and used by VMware RDMs.

l A VMAX device is displayed when the corresponding VPLEX adapter instance is added.

l vRealize Operations Manager does not display Storage Groups with unmapped and unbound devices.

l vRealize Operations Manager displays Storage Groups that contain mapped and bound devices.
