Introduction

HPE Alletra MP/9000 Series is ideally suited for mission-critical workloads with extreme sensitivity to latency and high availability requirements. It is particularly well-suited for environments that demand a compact data center footprint.

It resolves the agility versus reliability trade-off inherent in the choice between the public cloud and traditional enterprise storage by delivering a modern, as-a-service experience through HPE GreenLake. This experience is further enhanced by intelligence and automation that ensure applications are always available and operational.

This platform features a unique, massively parallel, multi-node, and all-active architecture, with all volumes active across all media, controllers, and host ports. It allows for limitless scalability when consolidating both traditional and next-generation mission-critical applications, offering predictable performance and ultra-low latency, all supported by a 100% availability guarantee. Additionally, it simplifies and reduces the costs associated with business continuity and disaster recovery through fully Active Bidirectional Replication.

Prerequisites

Default Monitoring Configurations

HPE Alletra MP/9000 Series has default Global Device Management Policies, Global Templates, Global Monitors and Global metrics in OpsRamp. Users can customize these default monitoring configurations as per their business use cases by cloning respective global templates and global Device Management Policies. OpsRamp recommends doing this activity before installing the app to avoid noise alerts and data.

  1. Default Global Device Management Policies

    OpsRamp has a Global Device Management Policy for each Native Type of HPE Alletra. You can find those Device Management Policies at Setup > Resources > Device Management Policies, search with suggested names in global scope. Each Device Management Policy follows below naming convention:

    {appName nativeType - version}

    Ex: hpe-alletra HPE Alletra Storage System - 1 (i.e, appName = hpe-alletra, nativeType = HPE Alletra Storage System, version = 1)

  2. Default Global Templates

    OpsRamp has a Global template for each Native Type of HPE Alletra. You can find those templates at Setup > Monitoring > Templates, search with suggested names in global scope. Each template follows below naming convention:

    {appName nativeType 'Template' - version}

    Ex: hpe-alletra HPE Alletra Storage System Template - 1 (i.e, appName = hpe-alletra, nativeType = HPE Alletra Storage System, version = 1)

  3. Default Global Monitors

    OpsRamp has a Global Monitors for each Native Type which has monitoring support. You can find those monitors at Setup > Monitoring > Monitors, search with suggested names in global scope. Each Monitors follows below naming convention:

    {monitorKey appName nativeType - version}

    Ex: HPE Alletra Storage System Monitor hpe-alletra HPE Alletra Storage System 1(i.e, monitorKey = HPE Alletra Storage System Monitor, appName = hpe-alletra, nativeType = HPE Alletra Storage System, version = 1)

Risks, Limitations & Assumptions

  • Application can handle Critical/Recovery failure notifications for below two cases when user enables App Failure Notifications in configuration
    • Connectivity Exception
    • Authentication Exception
  • Application uses the provided IpAddress/hostname, Credentials for both WS APIs and SSH communications.
  • Application will send any duplicate/repeat failure alert notification for every 6 hours.
  • Application cannot control monitoring pause/resume actions based on above alerts.
  • Metrics can be used to monitor HPE Alletra resources and can generate alerts based on the threshold values.
  • As per Developer guide, support to show disk information was added in WSAPI 1.6.15 release. So, OpsRamp will use Physical disk statistical data reports API when the WSAPI version is less than 1.6.15 and OpsRamp will use Querying physical disk information API when the WSAPI version is greater than or equals to 1.6.15.
  • As few of the HPE Alletra components did not have direct name information in WSAPI responses, OpsRamp proceed with below assumptions:
    • For Physical Disk Discovery, OpsRamp considered Physical disk ID (if WSAPI version is less than 1.6.15) OR WWN (if WSAPI version is greater than or equal to 1.6.15) as Resource Name in OpsRamp.
    • For Ports Discovery, OpsRamp considered portWWN (Port WWN will present for FCoE and FC ports only) OR port portPos (when portWWN was not present in response) as Resource Name in OpsRamp.
    • For VLUN Discovery, OpsRamp considered lun value as Resource Name in OpsRamp.
  • HPE Alletra’s Event/Alert polling will be started only if the user enables Event/Alert Polling in configuration.
  • Possible values of Event/Alert Severity Filter configuration property are FATAL, CRITICAL, MAJOR, MINOR, DEGRADED, INFORMATIONAL, DEBUG, UNKNOWN.
  • Possible values of Event Category configuration property are 1, 2. Category 1 is used to identify a lifecycle event and two is used to identify an alert.
  • OpsRamp has given sample mappings to map HPE Alletra Severity with OpsRamp Severities as part of the Event/Alert Severity Mapping configuration file. Users can modify them as per their use-case at any point of time from the app configuration page. Possible OpsRamp Severities are Critical, Warning, Ok, Info.
  • In referred hpe-alletra developer guides, There is no information about how Logged system events are getting resolved, hence OpsRamp has not included polled events/alerts recovery mechanism.
  • No support for Macro replacement for threshold breach alerts (i.e, customisation for threshold breach alert’s subject, description).
  • Component level thresholds can be configured on each resource level.
  • No support of showing activity log and applied time.
  • Application is not compatible with Cluster Gateway.
  • While upgrading the app to 2.0.0 or above versions, please uncheck HPE Alletra FC Switches, HPE Alletra Port Devices in configuration page and then upgrade the app as these are removed from version 2.0.0
