# HPE 3PAR STORESERV

Overview

This package is designed to monitor a HPE 3PAR STORESERV using the ServicePilot Agent.

Description

This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Manager to collect statistics from a HPE 3PAR STORESERV using the ServicePilot Agent. The statistics gathered in this way include:

  • Volumes
  • Arrays
  • Disk Drive
  • Storage Pools
  • FC Ports
  • Nodes
  • Power Supplies

ServicePilot Agent makes this collection by connecting to the SMI-S provider available directly on the HPE 3PAR STORESERV system.

Requirements

  • 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
