Virtual Volumes and SRM monitoring?

Post by cyaz » Jul 18, 2018 12:18 pm

Hi everyone,

Quick question : is there any specific monitoring for VVols and Site Recovery Manager in the latest version of the MP?
I've found a few hints in the v8 release notes about VVols being monitored and in an old forum post about SRM monitoring support being planned (back in 2009), but couldn't really find anything in the MP reference pages.

Thanks!

Hello,

There is nothing specific for vVols, SRM monitoring in the latest version of Veeam MP. Can you please give us a bit more info on what you are after, so we could account this information for our next updates?

Thank you!

I actually don't really know what these feature are used for, I'm not a vMware expert at all.
It's just that one of my customer asked me if the veeam MP would be able to monitor them, since they are planning on using them.
Only resource I was able to find was an old forum post ( https://forums.veeam.com/veeam-manageme ... t1481.html ) about SRM and the MP v8 feature page for VVOL ( https://www.veeam.com/management-pack-s ... tures.html ), but nothing in the actual resources pages, so I figured I would directly ask...

Hi cyaz,

Veeam MP does support VVOLs - they appear in our MP as Datastores with a 'VVOL' filesystem type. So they participate in all the same alerts, charts, dashboards, reports etc. as a standard VMFS Datastore.

However we do not have any direct monitoring of VMware SRM, and it's not currently planned.

Thanks,
Alec
