Overview

HP StoreFront Analytics for VMware vRealize Operations Manager

HP StoreFront Analytics (HP SFA) now covers two products: HP SFA for vROps v3.1 management pack and HP SFA for Log Insight v1.0 content pack.

The HP StoreFront Analytics for VMware vRealize Operations Manager, an adapter for vRealize Operations Manager from VMware, relates virtual machines and datastores to volumes from HP 3PAR StoreServ and HP StoreVirtual storage systems. Performance problems in VMware environments can be very difficult to troubleshoot and solve as understanding the relationships between virtual and physical resources can often be challenging. VMware vRealize Operations Manager (vROps) is designed to provide better visibility across all layers of the infrastructure. Administrators using HP StoreFront Analytics are able to visualize and analyze data from their HP 3PAR StoreServ and HP Store Virtual storage array directly within vRealize Operations Manager using HP StoreFront Analytics provided dashboards.

 

Included Dashboards

StoreFront Analytics provides preconfigured dashboards that allow the vSphere administrator to easily get storage capacity information, optimize HP 3PAR StoreServ or HP StoreVirtual storage systems and enable comprehensive troubleshooting scenarios. These clear relationships between Virtual Machines, datastores, and storage increase the vSphere administrator's productivity, and ability to ensure outstanding quality of service.

Metrics

HP StoreFront Analytics reports detailed health, capacity, and performance metrics including volumes, CPGs, storage systems, controllers, drive cages, disk drives, ports, and fans. Please consult the user guide for detailed information of which metrics are collected for HP 3PAR StoreServ or StoreVirtual.

Installation

HP StoreFront Analytics is distributed as a management pack that installs directly in VMware vRealize Operations.
