SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor is a storage resource management solution that comes from the original TekTools Storage Profiler. An independent software vendor product that covers a very wide range for storage systems, Fibre Channel switches, and host bus adapters, Storage Manager has detailed performance monitoring and reporting in addition to the resource monitoring and reporting expected from SRM software. The independence allows SolarWinds to present a consistent management view across heterogeneous systems in the storage environment.
SolarWinds offers Storage Resource Monitor with a graphical interface for even the casual administrator to understand the storage environment and troubleshoot problem. The major value points include:
Discovery is accomplished with agents on servers and through various forms of support for the SMI-S industry standard to collect information from storage systems, switches, and host bus adapters. Communication with element managers can also be used for detailed information.
