I got recently vCenter Operations Manager and I am playing a little bit around with it. I was wondering if there is any plugin to monitor also the network that the storage and the hosts are connected to (switches, fabrics, etc.).
Is that possible?
Thanks in advance!
to be able to do a Monitoring of Network Devices you can choose 2 option :
1. have a networking monitoring tool like Solarwind or NNM and build a custom Adapter to pull the data.
2. Build a SNMP Adapter to pull the info from the Network Devices.
I am having a look into the Symmetrix Adapter and it seems that it provides only the info that Solutions Enabler does. As far as I know, the SE does not provide info about network devices in the SAN, only the Symmetrix performance information (.ttp file).
no , there is an snmp adapter that you can use , you just need to configure it to pull the data from the network switches,
i configure this adapter more then a few time,
