Monitor Hitachi Performance with IntelliMagic Vision

    Monitor and manage the performance and capacity of your Hitachi storage 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 Hitachi system to elevate performance and capacity monitoring.



    Proactive Performance Management for your Hitachi Enterprise Devices

    Managing performance for Hitachi HUSVM and VSP storage systems requires not only full visibility from the front-end ports to the back-end disks, but also external factors such as SAN fabric and host configuration.

    IntelliMagic Vision provides built-in artificial intelligence that allows you to proactively uncover risks and bottlenecks in your Hitachi systems and address them before they impact production.

    Uncover hidden risks and potential bottlenecks inside your Hitachi Enterprise Storage environment (Virtual Storage Performance (VSP), VSP 5000-Series, G-Series, F-Series, Hitachi Unified Storage VM (HUS-VM)) before they can impact production, and answer questions such as:

    • How well balanced are my front-end ports, and are there front-end constraints?
    • How healthy are my parity groups and LDEVs, and what is the activity on them?
    • Do I have hosts with connectivity issues that pose a risk from either a performance or resiliency standpoint?
    • How is the space on my Hitachi systems being used, and how soon will I run out of space?
    • How is the SAN switch fabric performing, and is fabric performance affecting my Hitachi arrays?

    Proactive Health Insights

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

    Health insights include time, multiple metrics, multiple components, and AI-rated metrics in a single view to provide preventive focused insights.

    Troubleshoot Hitachi Storage Performance Issues

    The performance of the storage ports are rated based on the time spent processing inside the Storage System for Fibre or iSCSI read/write operations. This is the round-trip time excluding the time spent in the fabric and the host. With this information you can understand if congestion exists on the front-end host ports and adjust accordingly.


    Identify Anomalous Behavior with Automated Change Detection

    Changing or new workloads can potentially affect existing production workloads. IntelliMagic Vision uses advanced statistical analysis to not only highlight performance changes, but also indicates the magnitude of those changes, giving you the opportunity to address rogue workloads before they contribute to an issue and shorten the mean time to resolution when an incident occurs.

    Accurate Capacity Forecasting

    IntelliMagic Vision leverages domain agnostic AIOps to understand future storage capacity requirements and prevent capacity constraints. Key capacity metrics are tracked over time and their consumption rates are calculated to provide a comprehensive view of capacity growth and free space expiration at system, pool, and tier levels.

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


    Identify Front-End Port Imbalances

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

    End-To-End Topology and Performance

    IntelliMagic Vision’s topology charts show you the connectivity from the host to its block storage with drilldowns that show performance at each point along the path.

    Configuration anomaly reports show hosts with asymmetric connectivity patterns that present risk to both performance and resiliency.
