HP MSA 2040: Interface Status, IO and Speed
|Distribution:||official part of Check_MK|
This check monitors the states, I/O operations and speed of the interfaces of
HP MSA 2040 storage systems. To make this check work, you have to deploy the
corresponding special agent via the rule "Check HP MSA via Web Interface".
This check uses the same functionality as the check if64. Please refer to the
manpage of if64 for further documentation.
There are three allowed ways to specify an interface: its index, which simply
enumerates the interfaces starting from 1, its description and its alias. Note
that the interfaces discovered by this check do not have an alias (the alias
is the empty string).
One service is created for each interface that fulfills configurable conditions
(rule "Network interface and switch port discovery").
By default, these are interfaces which are currently found up and are of type 6,
32, 62, 117, 127, 128, 129, 180, 181, 182, 205 or 229. Note that all interfaces
discovered by this check are of type 6.
Grouping: In some situations, you do not want to monitor a single
interface but a group of interfaces that together form a pool.
This check supports such pools by defining groups. The data of all members is
accumulated and put together in a single grouped interface service.
