About Client

Dell EMC is an American multinational corporation headquartered in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, United States. Dell EMC sells data storage, information security, virtualization, analytics, cloud computing and other products and services that enable organizations to store, manage, protect, and analyze data.

Business Challenge

Each node in EMC Isilon adds resources to the cluster. Because each node contains globally coherent RAM, as a cluster becomes larger, it becomes faster. Meanwhile, the file system expands dynamically and redistributes content. However as cluster grows, it becomes difficult to monitor performance parameters at node levels and find out the weak node in cluster. Though OneFS Web interface is a good starting point to get overview of Cluster Status, the storage admin needs to know many other things happening at node levels that helps to make better decisions.

Client Solution

The EMC Isilon App for Splunk Enterprise provides enhanced visibility into your cluster including detailed drill-downs, built-in correlation resulting in comprehensive analytics and faster problem resolution.

Benefit of EMC Isilon App for Splunk Enterprise includes:

  • Track near real-time Cluster inventory in terms of nodes, SSDs, CPUs, Disks, storage pools, access zones etc
  • Monitor & Analyse Cluster performance data like disk usage, file system throughput, network throughput, CPU usage and cache hit/miss rates
  • Monitor Client connections and operation rates for all supported protocols.
  • Track Critical events and provide ability to drill down into the events.

The Crest Difference

Providing ACI specific cmdlets will make it easy for Admins to adopt Cisco ACI in their environments. Crest team created a .Net framework class library and a set of user-friendly PowerShell based cmdlets that leverage ACI’s REST API to provide users flexible and easy to use PowerShell based CLI interface to manage ACI. This library can also be consumed by other Microsoft products such as System Centre.
Dashboards containing several views are provided as part of the app:
▪ Cluster Overview & Inventory
▪ Node Details
▪ Protocol Details
▪ File System and FS Cache Performance
