Monitor IBM DS8000 with IntelliMagic Vision

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


    Simplify Infrastructure Performance Management

    Proactive Performance & Capacity Monitoring for your IBM Storage Systems

    The IBM DS8000 storage family offers superior performance and promises continuous access to data and applications, with 24×7 availability. Companies choose enterprise storage like the DS8000 for their performance, reliability and advanced management functions.

    However, the complexity of these enterprise storage systems makes performance management a challenging task.

    IntelliMagic Vision provides built-in, automated insights that leverage a domain-specific AIOPs approach that allows you to proactively prevent performance and capacity issues on your IBM Storage systems before they can impact production, all in a single pane of glass.

    Built-in AI for Proactive Health Insights

    Health Insights charts show the health of each key performance indicator for your nodes, ports, storage pools, tiers, external back-end arrays, and the hosts and clusters consuming storage from your IBM systems.

    The AI-based analytics engine rates and correlates metrics to the specific hardware capabilities and minimizes false positives.

    Evaluate Performance at Each Point in the Topology

    IntelliMagic Vision’s Health Insights charts allow you to evaluate performance from the host through the SAN fabric to the presented LUN.

    Topology charts show you the connectivity from the host to its block storage with drilldowns that show performance at each point in the path.


    Identify Anomalous Behavior with Automated Change Detection

    Knowing when key performance metrics change can allow you to proactively address anomalous behavior before it creates or contributes to an issue and shorten mean time to resolution when an issue occurs.

    IntelliMagic Vision uses advanced statistical analysis to not only highlight changes in performance metrics, but also shows you the magnitude of those changes.

    Identify Imbalances in Your Storage Systems

    Balance analysis identifies imbalances on your I/O Groups, nodes, ports, storage pools, and drives that are critical for managing the efficient scalability of your IBM storage systems.

    This allows you to manage and modify imbalances before they limit performance and allows you to easily assign new workloads in a manner that ensures the sustainability of your performance.


    Accurate Capacity Forecasting

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

    IntelliMagic Vision tracks key capacity metrics over time and calculates the consumption rate to provide a comprehensive view of 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.
