Installation

Infortrend EonStor monitoring

In case of usage of Virtual Appliance
  • Use local account lpar2rrd for hosting of STOR2RRD on the virtual appliance
  • Use /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd as the product home
It is already developed. Expected release is July 2022.
Anyone willing to beta test it? Contact us at support@stor2rrd.com.

The product obtains all data from Infortrend SNMP interface.

Install Prerequisites (skip that in case of Virtual Appliance)

  • AIX
    Download Net-SNMP packages and install them.
    Do not use the latest packages on AIX, it does not work, use net-snmp-5.6.2.1-1!
    # umask 0022
    # rpm -Uvh net-snmp-5.6.2.1-1 net-snmp-utils-5.6.2.1-1 net-snmp-perl-5.6.2.1-1
    
    Make sure
    • you use PERL=/opt/freeware/bin/perl in etc/stor2rrd.cfg
    • PERL5LIB in etc/stor2rrd.cfg contains /opt/freeware/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/ppc-thread-multi path

  • Linux
    # umask 0022
    # yum install net-snmp
    # yum install net-snmp-utils
    # yum install net-snmp-perl
    
    Note you might need to allow optional repositories on RHEL to yum can find it
    # subscription-manager repos --list
    ...
    # subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-optional-rpms
    
    Use rhel-7-for-power-le-optional-rpms for Linux on Power etc ...

  • Linux Debian/Ubuntu
    % umask 0022
    % apt-get install snmp libsnmp-perl snmp-mibs-downloader
    
    Assure that this line is commented out in /etc/snmp/snmp.conf
    #mibs :
    
    If apt-get does not find snmp-mibs-downloader package then enable contrib and non-free repositories.

Allow network access

  • Allow access from the STOR2RRD host to the Infortrend storage on port 161 UDP .
    Test if port is open:
    $ perl /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd/bin/conntest_udp.pl 192.168.1.1 161
      Connection to "192.168.1.1" on port "161" is ok
    

Storage SNMP configuration

We are not aware of any necessary configuration on the storage, but we do not exclude it

STOR2RRD storage configuration

    Add storage into configuration from the UI:
    Settings icon ➡ Storage ➡ New ➡ Vendor:device ➡ Infortrend
    Infortrend Storage management

  • Assure you have enough of disk space on the filesystem where is STOR2RRD installed
    Roughly you might count 2 - 30 GB per a storage (it depends on number of volumes, 30GB for 5000 volumes)
    $ df -g /home   # AIX
    $ df -h /home   # Linux
    
  • Schedule to run storage agent from stor2rrd crontab (lpar2rrd on Virtual Appliance, it might already exist there)
    $ crontab -l | grep load_infortrendperf.sh
    $
    
    Add if it does not exist as above
    $ crontab -e
    
    # Infortrend
    0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd/load_infortrendperf.sh > /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd/load_infortrendperf.out 2>&1
    
    Assure there is already an entry with the UI creation running once an hour in crontab
    $ crontab -e
    
    # STOR2RRD UI (just ONE entry of load.sh must be there)
    5 * * * * /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd/load.sh > /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd/load.out 2>&1
    
  • Let run the storage agent for 15 - 20 minutes to get data, then:
    $ cd /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd
    $ ./load.sh
