How to set or apply distinct/different hp-3par disk thresholds within a SAN through templates in the hp-3par probe.


"A single SAN has multiple drives. In measuring the amount of used disk space on each drive, I want some drives to alert at 90%, but others at 95%."


- The following procedure example applies a distinct disk availability threshold on a disk using filter name “test1”, created having precedence of 0 and the other filter “Auto filter” available by default. The precedence of default “Auto filter” was changed to 1, so that the "test1" filter, with precedence of 0 applies first and “Auto filter” with precedence 1 applies later.
- The filters are applied in precedence order. Lower precedence numbers have higher priority. For equal precedence numbers filters are applied in alphabetical order.

Do the following to provide multiple/different thresholds for different hp-3par disks using templates:

1.  Go to the template editor and create a new filter. (Example: The name "test1" was created under the “Logical disks” section.)





2.  After creating a filter, create a rule to define which disks should this filter be applied. (Example: Rule created to apply “test1” filter to logical disk name “backup_Vol1.usr.0”)





3.  In your filter, “test1” in this example, enable the QOS Availability and set the threshold. (Example: Threshold is set to 90.)







4.  Change Auto filter precedence to 1, so that your custom filter, “test1” in this example, applies first to your disk, backup_Vol1.usr.0 in this example, and so the Auto filter will then get applied on other logical disks. As seen below, the threshold is set as 5, 4 and 1 in Auto filter.







5.  As seen below, the "test1" filter is applied on backup_Vol1.usr.0 with the threshold of 90.









6.  As seen below, alternately, the Auto filter gets applied on backup_Vol1.usr.1 logical disk with a threshold different than 90.
