HP EVA Performance MP: Version 3 is out!

Alexey Zhuravlev has created an improved version of the HP EVA Performance MP. Versions 1 and 2 were created by Alain Côté.

The latest version of the MP contains these improvements:

  • Scripts are composed in a shared data sources to support ‘cookdown’;
  • New classes for better targeting and granularity;
  • Most of the collection rules have a short knowledge articles;
  • Added the Unit Monitor that checks for friendly names config file existence and generates an alert (including a knowledge base article);
  • Minor scripts improvements. New scripts a little bit more stable and should not fail if you do not have an optional components (like a data replication groups) on your EVA;
  • New views;
  • Collection Rules for Windows PerfMon Counters are added (this rules are disabled by default);
  • Diagnostic task for Disk Group - Average Write Latency Monitor shows a TOP 5 virtual disks for Write Latency (not for activity, we're found that top 5 active (in+out MB\s) disks don’t help us to troubleshoot, just because our biggest virtual disks are always on top, not the slowest disks which are the 'latency generators');
  • New reports (defined in the dedicated management pack).
