The following information applies to versions 4 and 5 of the Monitor Storage Manager application.
Caution: If NTP is not configured, and a system in the environment transmits statistics to StorNext Connect with a time that is later than the time on the StorNext Connect system, the stats are discarded and StorNext Connect does not report accurate monitoring stats.
The Monitor Storage Manager application allows you to monitor destinations for Storage Manager, including Lattus object storage and StorNext Archive Enabled Libraries. You can view information about device activity, operation activity, device performance, and storage usage.
Additionally, you can use the drop-down menus in this screen to filter the view of your managed storage by:
- Storage Manager: Filter by workspace.
- Device Type: Filter by device type (e.g., LTO tape drive).
- Device Target: Filter by device target (e.g., specific tape drive).
The Monitor Storage Manager application provides graphs that display statistics over time.
Switch between views or click Update to update the information on the screen. To update information based on different filters, select the filter options from the drop-down lists, and then click Update.
