  • Patent number: 8433848
    Abstract: Storage requirements of one or more applications may be serviced by a mix of different disk technologies across one or more storage tiers. According to the system described herein, desirable or optimal mixes of the different disks may be determined and used in the efficient and cost-effective modification or upgrade of storage arrays. For example, whereas SATA drives may be the most cost effective per gigabyte of storage, some applications may not be able to operate based on SATA performance characteristics. On the other hand, flash drives, which may have high performance characteristics, may be too expensive to be used exclusively in a storage array. The system described herein provides a tool that allows for optimal planning of storage resources in a multi-tier storage environment responsive to workload data of a storage array and based on performance characteristics and costs of the storage resources.

  • Publication number: 20050223092
    Abstract: A method and apparatus displays time-based alert information for network objects in a summary view. In another embodiment, a method and apparatus displays time-based alert information in a topographical map display. In a further embodiment, a method and apparatus displays time-based alert information in a graphical display for one or more network objects. In another embodiment, a method and apparatus displays time-based alert information in a graphical display for one or more network objects along with statistical bands. In a further embodiment, a method and apparatus displays time-based alert information in a graphical display with thresholds set with historical data.

  • Publication number: 20050086646
    Abstract: A data management and archive method and apparatus, such as for implementation in an automated system to monitor and manage status, performance and configuration data for a plurality of networked storage components. Analysis and cross-correlation of data related to the plurality of storage components can be done individually, collectively and/or comparatively. A collection manager component of a workload analyzer is implemented to start and stop data collection in the context of a system comprising at least one storage component (or at least two networked storage components). The collection manager includes a command and control module that coordinates requests of data from at least one collection agent configured on at least one host connected to the storage component(s). The collection manager manages collection of data and effects file transfer of collected data according to a user specified policy, and maintains status of the data collected.
