  • LUN-level capacity use
  • LUN-level performance data
  • Capacity forecast for each LUN
  • Most of the metrics are fairly high level
  • No visibility into virtual disks (you need Virtualization Monitor for that)
  • Not much granularity in hardware health

  • Unmasks storage performance metrics and gives a common dashboard for monitoring.
  • A simple, intuitive interface for adding supported storage frames.
  • Lineage -- "The guest OS is connected to the virtual host and the virtual host is connected to the ... wait, what LUN is that?!?" #SOLVED.
  • No ability to add your own storage frames -- if it isn't supported, you aren't monitoring it.
  • Troubleshooting connectivity failures lack full transparency. It isn't needed often, but could be more verbose.
  • It's expensive relative to the other tools from SolarWinds -- but, then again, so was your shared storage!

  • Asset inventory for storage
  • Predicting the future usage
  • Performance metrics
  • Revealing the internal statistics such as temperatures and hardware condition
  • The list of devices covers the most popular, but adding more types of devices is always helpful
  • Device types make it difficult to connect some times (on the vendor side) but the product does a good job, configuration could be easier for setting up devices.

  • The SolarwWinds Storage Resource Monitor does good reporting and alerting to an issue. Our service center which has live monitoring uses the tool for real-time monitoring of events. It then creates tickets to action various alarms.
  • Real-time size monitoring of especially thin storage is always necessary to any thin VMware environment.
  • Great historical graph representations of storage related events. Ability to create performance graphs and monitor changes.
  • Currently there is no support for XtremIO storage. So we have to monitor that separately.
  • It could provide proactive measures to fix any Storage or SIOC related bottlenecks in the environment.
