View storage infrastructure information in the Orion Web Console
Install Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) along with VIM to view the physical storage environment that corresponds to the virtual environment. By installing both VIM and SRM, you can gain an overall view of your physical storage infrastructure.
If SRM is installed, the storage information about LUNs that is displayed in VIM is linked to the information stored in SRM. Click the links in VIM resources to reach the corresponding Details page of the storage volume.
The storage related information is only displayed in VIM if:
- A mapping exists between a storage volume and the virtualization volume entity, and
- VIM is integrated with Virtualization Manager.
If Virtualization Manager is integrated with Storage Manager (STM), the links to STM are displayed in the VIM resources even if the SRM module is not installed.
