EMC-CLARIION-STORAGE Database technology integration

ServicePilot database-emc-clariion-storage

# EMC Clariion Storage


This package is designed to monitor a EMC Clariion SAN using the ServicePilot Agent.


This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Manager to collect statistics from the EMC Clariion SAN on which the ServicePilot Agent has been deployed. The statistics gathered in this way include:

  • Volumes
  • Storage Processors

ServicePilot Agent makes this collection by connecting to the SMI-S provider.


  • An SMI-S provider must be configured and started for each target device.

  • Network Flows - It is is necessary to ensure network connectivity between ServicePilot and the monitored device. In case of a network infrastructure using a firewall, all the ports below must be opened:

    • UDP/5988 (SMI): Between ServicePilot Agent and SMI-S provider
    • ServicePilot Manager Web server access (by default TCP/80 when using HTTP or TCP/443 when using HTTPS although this port is configurable): Between ServicePilot Agent and ServicePilot Manager
  • ServicePilot Requirements

    • ServicePilot Manager minimum version: 8.5
    • ServicePilot Agent minimum version: 8.5 installed and configured


Before adding a resource to monitor, make certain that all pre-requisites are in place and if a ServicePilot Agent is required, that it is communicating correctly with the ServicePilot Manager.
