Sentry Software is proud to announce that Monitoring Studio 9.0.00 beta is now available to download. It includes new features and improvements.

           

What's New

 

  • CMA compatibility: Monitoring Studio can be configured through BMC ProactiveNet Central  Monitoring Administration 9.5 and higher. Policies can also be applied.
  • Improved hierarchy to better reflect what is monitored.
  • Extended support for remote monitoring.
  • Easier credentials management through a centralized interface.
  • Host availability checks: Ping, Hostname Resolution, SNMP, SSH, WMI, or TCP Port checks can be performed to make sure hosts are available  and automatically turn off the monitoring of the elements attached to the host,  if necessary.

Because a lack of capacity planning can result in unnecessary expenditures and poor customer service, administrators should always rely on powerful capacity management tools to implement their storage capacity planning model.

In this white paper, learn how you can leverage the Sentry Software Connectors for BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization to balance cost against actual and anticipated storage capacity needs… http://ow.ly/Hq3wT

The ConsumedCapacityPercentage parameter available for the Volumes application class of most storage monitoring products indicates the percentage of the storage pool that is actually allocated or reserved. This parameter is provided for information only and no thresholds should be set on it because:

  • If the volume is of type “Thick provisioning”, the value is 100% right from the start.
  • If the volume is of type “Thin provisioning”, the value of the parameter will keep increasing as the volume fills up with data. However, its value will NEVER decrease, even though data is removed from the volume.

The above behaviors are native and apply to all storage systems (EMC, Hitachi, IBM, HP, Dell etc).

Sentry Software therefore recommends removing all thresholds that could have been set on this parameter. This article explains how to verify no thresholds are set and how to remove them.
