How the Management Pack Works

The Management Pack for IBM SVC and Storwize connects to the IBM Spectrum Virtualize for SAN Volume Controller and Storwize® Family CLI to import SVC or Storewize resources, relationships, metrics, and alerts into vRealize Operations, enabling comprehensive monitoring and troubleshooting, while providing visibility into the virtual layer within vROps.

How to Get Started
