About the Monitor Storage Manager App

The following information applies to version 6 of the Monitor Storage Manager application.

Do you need to install or update the Monitor Storage app? See Manage Applications for instructions about the App Store.

When updating to Discover Components V6, you should also update the monitoring apps (Monitor Performance, Monitor Storage Manager, and Utilization). Otherwise, statistics might be sent to a different directory than expected, resulting in inaccurate reporting in the monitoring apps.

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 server, 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).
  • Time

The Monitor Storage Manager application provides graphs that display statistics over time.
