3PAR & InfoSight

Whilst at HPE Discover I managed to nab some screenshots of the new 3PAR implementation of InfoSight. You can read my post about all the InfoSight announcements.

To get InfoSight up and running with 3PAR you need to be running 3PAR OS 3.3.1, have an active support contract and have the 3PAR communicating back to base. The initial release, available in January will focus on delivering greater insight into the performance of VM’s on the storage.  This is achieved by adding additional functionality to the Service Processor which will allow it to talk to the vCentre in your environment.  Once you have your 3PAR setup with InfoSight you will see two key areas of information, storage information which today will be the same as information being retrieved from StoreFront remote. Secondly you will see the virtualisation layer info being pulled back from vCentre.

Below is the screenshots I managed to gather of InfoSight with 3PAR:

Key host storage performance stats – IOPS, latency and throughput

The following screens allow “noisy neighbour analysis”. They look at various stats to identify which VMs are working your environment the hardest and potentially causing contention in the environment.

Top VMs by latency and IOPs

Top VMs by CPU usage

Top VM by CPU Useage

Top VMs by data usage

This menu shows all the contention reports available

Seen the 3PAR simulator video setup guide?

    1. Both, 3PAR as well as VM Vision for 3PAR are aware of VVOLs. Therefore VVOL configs will show correctly in VMVision in InfoSight

  1. Is it necessary any license? I guess that the communication with HPE base must be just from 3par side to HPE side, or do you mean from HPE side to 3par side too?
    Thanks in advance and regards.
