Overall Satisfaction with IntelliMagic Vision for SAN

Used by SAN and storage team. IntelliMagic Vision for SAN gathers performance metrics for both SAN and storage, and this allows reporting and performance monitoring and trending.
  • Performance metrics for multiple vendors and equipment models
  • Stability and reliability of the system
  • Ease of report creation
  • Additional reports needed for IBM SVC replication monitoring
  • Additional new equipment not yet monitored
  • Automated report generation and distribution is not easy to implement
  • Trending and projections into the future are needed
  • IBM SVC performance gathering
  • Brocade SAN performance gathering
  • Ease and speed of reporting to help diagnose issues
  • Eliminated multiple reporting sources and consolidated to one
I used BMC Patrol long ago, and native tools from Brocade Network Advisor.

IntelliMagic Vision for SAN is much easier to implement than Patrol, and it's all-inclusive for everything--SAN, storage, SVC--so one source for all reporting.
