Monitor EMC VNX Performance with IntelliMagic Vision

    Monitor and manage the performance and capacity of your Dell EMC VNX systems in a single view with the rest of your multi-vendor SAN system.

    Reduce your costs and mean time to resolution with platform-specific, AI-driven visibility into your Dell EMC system to elevate performance and capacity monitoring.



    Optimize Dell EMC VNX Storage Array Performance and Capacity Management

    Managing performance for an EMC VNX system requires full visibility from the not only the front-end ports to the back-end disks, but also external factors such as SAN fabric and host configuration.

    IntelliMagic Vision’s built-in artificial intelligence allows you to proactively uncover risks and bottlenecks within your EMC VNX system and address them before they can impact production.

    Quickly find the answers to questions such as:

    • How are my EMC VNX systems performing based on the key performance metrics of each?
    • How well balanced are my critical components, such as storage processors, front-end ports, disk pools, and storage pools?
    • How are my FAST auto-tiering configurations performing?
    • When will my storage pools run out of capacity based on the current burn rate?
    • Which hosts are the heavy hitters and which volume(s) are they using?
    • Is host connectivity to my EMC Unity systems configured in accordance with best practices?

    Proactive Health Insights

    Built-in, automated health insights leverage domain-specific AIOps to prevent storage and fabric performance and capacity issues in your Dell EMC VNX system.

    The performance of the storage ports is rated based on the amount of time spent at the ports so that you can observe if congestion exists on the front-end host ports and adjust accordingly.

    Understand Host Latency

    Host latency from the host to the storage system with drill-downs from the storage system to the hosts and their volumes help analysts understand the latency between the hosts and the storage arrays. 


    Automated Throughput Limit Warnings

    Dynamic thresholds identify when the system workload is nearing the throughput limits based on the chassis bandwidth, the number of active ports and the speeds of the active ports.

    The variable thresholds in the background of the charts indicate that the expected capabilities of the storage systems and their expected response times change dynamically based upon the actual workload.

    Identify Front-End Port Imbalances

    Balance analysis identifies imbalances on the front-end ports that are critical for managing the efficient scalability of the VNX arrays. This allows you to manage and modify imbalances before they limit your throughput capacity. 


    Accurate Capacity Forecasting

    Capacity forecasting leverages domain agnostic AIOps to understand future storage capacity requirements and prevent capacity constraints.

    IntelliMagic tracks key capacity metrics over time and calculates the consumption rate over time to provide a comprehensive view of the capacity growth and free space expiration at a storage system and storage pool level.

    The number of days until running out of space can be leveraged to purchase more storage for the impacted storage system.
