How the Management Pack Works

The Management Pack for Dell EMC Isilon accesses the OneFS API to import Isilon clustered NAS resources, relationships, metrics, and alerts into vRealize Operations to enable comprehensive monitoring and troubleshooting, while providing visibility into the virtual layer within vROps. Specifying a virtual IP during configuration allows the management pack to discover all nodes, returning data for each node, and enabling failover if the primary node goes down.
