Monitor SAN Fabric Performance with IntelliMagic Vision

    Monitor and manage the performance of your Brocade and Cisco fabric in a single view with the rest of your multi-vendor SAN system.

    Expose the inner workings of your SAN fibre to prevent incidents and automatically identify common SAN issues such as buffer credit issues, malformed packets, performance over subscription, single path analysis, and zoning configuration issues.



    Maximize Brocade and Cisco SAN Fibre Performance Management

    IntelliMagic Vision for SAN provides end-to-end visibility required to manage fabric performance. When applied to your VMware, Storage and Brocade and Cisco Fabric, you can expose the inner workings of your SAN fabric and prevent incidents.

    You will be able  to answer questions such as:

    • What do the SAN fabric metrics mean?
    • What are the key SAN fabric metrics and what thresholds should I set?
    • Do I have any slow drain storage or host devices?
    • Do I have any ISLs with buffer credit issues?
    • Are there any hosts with only single fabric paths?
    • Who are the heavy hitters in my SAN fabric?
    • Is multi-pathing working correctly on my VMware ESX Hosts?

    This enables you to safely get the most value out of your SAN infrastructure.

    Proactive Health Insights

    Visualize all storage switch exceptions in single pane of glass. Color coding of the KRIs provides an indication of the level of risk or problem severity for the infrastructure.

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

    End-to-End Topology

    Interactive end-to-end topology  represents fabric connectivity from the VMware guest all the way through to the back-end storage volume. At each point along the way, it is possible to drill down and diagnose root causes.

    This interactive visualization allows you to identify single path issues as well as imbalances in the connectivity.


    Rebalance Workloads for Maximum Performance

    See at a glance where resources need to be re-allocated to achieve maximum performance and the most efficient utilization of hardware resources.

    Validate that host multi-pathing is working correctly with VMware ESX hosts, proactively make zoning decisions, adjust multi-pathing settings or rebalance workloads to avoid purchasing additional hardware.

    San Fabric Zoning Issues VMAX


    Automatically Detect Zoning Issues

    Automatically detect when hosts cannot reach intended storage target ports because zones are configured incorrectly.


    Historical Trending

    Performance and capacity metrics are kept at a detail level, and a daily level to allow for detailed performance analysis or long term trending.You decide how long to keep detailed metrics.

    Take advantage of specialized performance trend reports. With these you can track switch and switch port activity over the long term allowing you to assess trends of port utilizations, throughput and port usage.

    SAN Fabric Port Errors


    Troubleshoot Connectivity, Performance, and Errors Issues

    Visualize all of your heavy hitting ports and easily drill down to see the connected storage or host ports.

    View the performance of all the switches in your environment while maintaining the integrity of the roll-ups by surfacing problems. Switches identified with the highest rating have issues at the port level.

    Take advantage of built-in guides to the port type for a selected switch and from there to a switch port that has a problem. The entire process takes only a few clicks and the ratings provide an easy guide to follow.
