I'm using vROps to monitor my VMware environment, and recently had an FC card die in a host. The dead FC card did not trigger an alert, as we still had multiple other paths to the storage through the second configured HBA on another FC card.
I can think of two ways to alert on this case:
The first option was to create a symptom for any storage device path with a status of dead.
The second option is to create a symptom for a host with less than one online FC HBA.
Unfortunately, I don't see any properties or metrics that would allow me to create an alert for either of the options
Has anyone had any success in configuring a similar alert?
Apparently I just needed to take a break before looking again. There is a message event symptom for "A path to storage device went down" that I'd overlooked. That looks like it'll get me what I want.
