The command-line-interface (CLI) allows you to issue commands for major TotalStorage Productivity Center functions.4 IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center: The Next Generation
  22. 22. 1.1.2 IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center components In this section we provide more details onthe components that make up the TotalStorage Productivity Center. IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center for Data IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center for Data is designed to provide a comprehensive storage resource management (SRM) solution for heterogeneous storage environments across the enterprise. It includes enterprise-wide reporting and monitoring, policy-based management, and automated capacity provisioning for direct attached storage (DAS), network attached storage (NAS), and storage area network (SAN) environments. TotalStorage Productivity Center for Data enables administrators to identify, manage, control, and predict storage usage. It also provides file system and database management, reporting on storage capacity and growth. TotalStorage Productivity Center for Data provides over 300 enterprise-wide reports, monitoring and alerts, policy based action and file system capacity automation in the heterogeneous environment. TotalStorage Productivity Center for Data helps improve capacity utilization of filesystems and databases and helps add intelligent data protection and retention practices. TotalStorage Productivity Center for Data performs the following functions: Discover and monitor disks, partitions, shared directories, and servers. Monitor and report on capacity and utilization across platforms to help you to identify trends and prevent problems. Monitor storage assets associated with enterprise-wide databases and issues notifications of potential problems. Provides a wide variety of standardized reports about filesystems, databases, and storage infrastructure to track usage and availability. Provide file analysis across platforms to help you to identify and reclaim space used by non-essential files. Provide policy-based management and automated capacity provisioning for file systems when user-defined thresholds are reached. Generate invoices that charge back for storage usage on a departmental, group, or user level. These functions that are available with Data Manager are designed to help lower storage costs by: Improving storage utilization Enabling intelligent capacity planning Supporting application availability through computer uptime reporting and application database monitoring. The architecture of IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center for Data enables system administrators to see all of the storage assets including direct-attached storage and network-attached storage. This comprehensive view of the entire storage map allows the administrators to manage much larger environments, but also get the information about utilization and usage that is typically required in large environments. The information collected by TotalStorage Productivity Center for Data can help you make intelligent decisions optimizing the utilization of your open system environments. The data collected by TotalStorage Productivity Center for Data helps you understand what is really going on with the data that resides on your servers. This includes views as to when files are Chapter 1. Introduction to IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center 5

The ability to map storage consumption to storage hardware has become increasingly important as the size of open systems environments have increased. In addition to understanding the current consumption and usage of data within the enterprise, TotalStorage Productivity Center for Data keeps track of this information over time. Not only does this historical view of storage consumption and utilization allow you to see usage trends over time, it also enables the system administrator to see a projected use of storage into the future. This allows the system administrator to plan the purchase of additional capacity in a planned proactive manner rather than just reacting to being out of space. The major components of TotalStorage Productivity Center for Data are: Data Manager The manager controls the discovery, reporting, and alert functions. It does the following: – Receives information from the agents and stores that information in the central repository Issues commands to agents for jobs. – Receives requests from clients for information and retrieves the requested information from the central data repository. Data agents on managed systems An agent resides on each managed system. Each agent performs the following functions: – Runs probes and scans. – Collects storage-related information about the volumes or file systems that are accessible to the managed systems. – Forwards information to the manager to be stored in the database repository. Web server The optional Web server permits remote Web access to the server. Clients Clients communicate directly to Data Manager to perform administration, monitoring, and reporting. A client can be a locally installed interface to Data Manager, or it can use the Web server to access the user interface through a Web browser. IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center for Disk IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center for Disk enables device configuration and management of SAN attached devices from a single console. In addition, it also includes performance capabilities to monitor and manage the performance of the disks. TotalStorage Productivity Center for Disk simplifies the complexity of managing multiple SAN attached storage devices. It allows you to manage SANs and heterogeneous storage from a single console. TotalStorage Productivity Center for Disk allows you to manage network storage components based on SMI-S, such as: IBM TotalStorage SAN Volume Controller (SVC) IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Storage Server® (ESS) IBM TotalStorage Disk Subsystems (DS4000™, DS6000™, and DS8000™ Series) Other storage subsystems that support the SMI-S standards Device discovery is performed by the Service Location Protocol (SLP), as specified by SMI-S. Configuration of the discovered devices is possible in conjunction with CIM agents associated with those devices, using the standard mechanisms defined in SMI-S. TotalStorage Productivity Center for Disk gathers events, and can launch an element manager specific to each discovered device.6 IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center: The Next Generation
  24. 24. TotalStorage Productivity Center for Disk performance functions include: Collect and store performance data and provide alerts Provide graphical performance reports Helps optimize storage allocation Provide volume contention analysisThrough the use of data collection, setting of thresholds and use of performance reports,performance can be monitored for the ESS, DS4000, DS6000, DS8000, SVC, and any otherstorage subsystem that supports the SMI-S block server performance subprofile. Theperformance function starts with the data collection task, responsible for capturingperformance statistics for the devices and storing the data in the database.Thresholds can be set for certain performance metrics depending on the type of device.Threshold checking is performed during data collection. When performance is outside thespecified boundaries, alerts can be generated.Once performance data has been collected, you can configure TotalStorage ProductivityCenter for Disk to present graphical or text reports on the historical performance behavior ofspecified devices. The performance reports provide information about the performancemetrics and display past or current performance in graphical form.IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center for FabricTotalStorage Productivity Center for Fabric provides automated device discovery, topologyrendering, error detection fault isolation, SAN error predictor, zone control, real-timemonitoring and alerts and event management for heterogeneous enterprise SANenvironments.

Topology Viewer Within TotalStorage Productivity Center the Topology Viewer is designed to provide an extended graphical topology view; a graphical representation of the physical and logical resources (for example, computers, fabrics, and storage subsystems) that have been discovered in your storage environment. In addition, the Topology Viewer depicts the relationships among resources (for example, the disks comprising a particular storage subsystem). Detailed, tabular information (for example, attributes of a disk) is also provided. With all the information that topology viewer provides, you can easily and more quickly monitor and troubleshoot your storage environment. The overall goal of the Topology Viewer is to provide a central location to view a storage environment, quickly monitor and troubleshoot problems, and gain access to additional tasks and function within the TotalStorage Productivity Center UI without users losing their orientation to the environment. This kind of flexibility through the Topology Viewer UI will afford better cognitive mapping between the entities within the environment, and provide data about entities and access to additional tasks and functionality associated with the current environmental view and the users role. The Topology Viewer uses the TotalStorage Productivity Center database as the central repository for all data that it displays. It actually reads the data in user definable intervals from the database and updates, if necessary, the displayed information automatically. Figure 1-3 on page 9 shows the Topology Viewer Overview view.8 IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center: The Next Generation
