As you sure know, many storage devices are already supported by our Storage Monitoring solution for TrueSight Operations Mgmt. For any other storage device that you wish to monitor in TrueSight, you can count on Monitoring Studio!


Monitoring Studio allows you to configure the monitoring of almost any storage device for which no out-of-the-box solution is available on the market. Our consultant, Razeem Mohamed, recently took up the challenge and created configuration templates for the following platforms:
