What is a Cisco UCS?
Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) is a product line by Cisco Systems that wanted to redefine the way data centers were structured and managed. This integrated solution combines computing hardware, a virtualization layer, a switching matrix, and management software in a unified, cohesive system. It provides a highly available and scalable infrastructure that streamlines data center resources by unifying computing, networking, storage access, and virtualization in one system.
How to monitor a Cisco UCS?
ServicePilot makes it very easy to monitor Cisco UCS equipment. Simply configure the SNMP interface of the Cisco UCS device. Then use the ServicePilot web interface to add a resource from the ServicePilot network-cisco-ucs package.
The statistics gathered in this way include:
- Global System Information
- Fabric Interconnect health and performance (Interfaces, Fans, Temperature sensors and Power Supplies)
- Chassis health and performance (Interfaces, Fans, Temperature sensors,Power Supplies)
- Blade Servers health and performance on each chassis
How to install a cisco-ucs resource?
- Use your ServicePilot OnPremise installation or a SaaS account.
- Add a new cisco-ucs resource via the web interface (
/prmresources) or via API (
/prmpackagespage), the default ServicePilot agent or another agent will be provisioned automatically.
Details of the cisco-ucs package are located in the
/prmpackagespage of the software.
ServicePilot enables you to deliver IT services faster and more securely with automated discovery and advanced monitoring features.
By correlating the technology CISCO UCS with APM and infrastructure monitoring, ServicePilot is able to provide a more comprehensive view of an organization's IT environment.
This allows IT teams to quickly identify and diagnose issues that may be impacting application performance, and take corrective action before end-users are affected.
