Storage Management & Monitoring with Storage Manager

Having a unified view of the performance and status of your storage environment helps identify how your storage resources are currently used and how they will be used in the future. Having visibility across your storage infrastructure ensures that you can continuously monitor the performance of the SAN environment, identify the busiest LUNs, RAID groups, disks, and ports across multi-vendor storage arrays, and monitor the performance of multiple protocols such as fiber channel switches, NFS, and iSCSI.

  • Deliver real-time SAN, NAS, DAS performance monitoring
  • Generate policy-based alerts on storage status and usage thresholds
  • Manage storage resources without impacting network and device performance
  • Generate out-of-the-box reports to assess storage device performance
  • Proactively manage storage usage and reclamation of storage space

Comprehensively monitor your multi-vendor storage environment with SolarWinds® Storage Manager and take control of your SAN, NAS, and DAS infrastructure. SolarWinds’ data storage management software lets you quickly and easily monitor storage performance, isolate hotspots, automate storage capacity planning, map VMs to physical storage, analyze storage usage, reclaim storage space, manage fiber channel switches, and more.

  4. Automated storage capacity planning

Unified view of the performance and status of your SAN environment

Monitor and manage storage utilization with SolarWinds’ storage monitoring software. With an intuitive Web interface, our storage management software provides you with an agentless approach to monitor your SAN fabric. Start monitoring performance data on LUNs, volumes, disks, RAID groups, storage pools, FC switches and array ports, array operation status, and more.

With the powerful DAS, NAS, and SAN performance monitoring capabilties, Storage Manager helps you:

  • Map storage volumes back to the host
  • Manage space consumption on RAID groups
  • Understand how volumes are load balanced across each storage processor on the array
  • Identify overloaded LUNs or RAID groups

Heterogeneous storage environments and reporting

Generate aggregate and specific reports for heterogeneous storage environments. Storage Manager provides robust reporting functionality including hundreds of pre-defined and fully customizable reports. These reports provide in-depth information on every aspect of your cross-vendor storage environment including raw capacity, disk characteristics, LUN/volume/vDisk mapping, assigned capacity and usage, etc. Storage reporting in the SolarWinds® storage management software simplifies the creation of customized storage reports. You can even create custom groups that allow you to group storage, servers, and file systems into unique business-related entities for chargeback, division reporting, and other analysis.

Get access to several out-of-the-box reports such as:

  • RAID groups/storage pool utilization
  • Top 10 reports
  • Enterprise capacity summary
  • Free LUNs report
  • Thin provisioning report
  • Physical disk reports
  • Asset info reports
  • And more
