OpStor is an integrated storage network-monitoring tool offering fault recording, performance measuring, inventory and business reporting functions through a simple web client. SAN fabric switches, RAIDs, Tape Libraries, HBA and Host servers from popular vendors, such as Brocade, McData, NetApp, Hitachi, StorageTek, ADIC, Qlogics, etc., are managed via SNMP and other protocols.
OpStor auto discovers storage devices using In-band, Out-of-band, and vendor specific algorithms. All the device properties are collected and the devices along with their sub-components are modeled.
Administrators can rely on OpStor for reports on alarms, performance, utilizations, inventory, trends, etc. from their storage networks.
Proactive fault management captures traps, sensor faults, and Status Change Notifications; correlates; and reports them to administrators through e-mail or SMS messages. For example, OpStor manages more than 80 system-level fault conditions from NetApp devices, more than 40 from ADIC, and so on. Apart from alarm escalation options, daily and weekly reports are sent to the administrators on storage infrastructure health.
OpStor does periodic status polling and collects data on performance and utilization. This data is stored in the database and used to generate performance, utilization, and availability reports for all the storage devices and its sub components. OpStor also generates reports on Top N available and performing devices.
OpStor allows plotting of real-time graph with live, SNMP-based, non-intrusive, Fibre Channel port level data collected from fabric switches. These are useful for troubleshooting at the port-level.
Up-to-date device inventory is maintained and reports are generated on device location, device vendors, alarm distribution, problem tickets, etc. All the reports can be saved as pdf or printed for future reference.
With all the features required for a SME storage administrator, OpStor comes to you at an affordable cost.
