IBM XIV Mobile Dashboard is a free application that provides simple, flexible, comprehensive monitoring capabilities for IBM XIV Storage Systems.
THIS APP IS OBSOLETE AND IS REPLACED BY A NEWER ONE (UNIVERSAL APP). Search for: "IBM XIV Mobile Dashboard" in App Store.
Storage administrators may use this application to securely check on their XIV systems health status, as well as gain immediate access to real time performance metrics, including IOPs, bandwidth and latency. Performance data is available for the entire box, as well as for individual hosts and volumes, allowing great visibility into how system resources are currently being utilized.
To access the IBM XIV system monitoring data, simply provide your storage administration credentials to login to your system over a Wi-Fi or 3G link. Depending on your iPad’s orientation, data will be presented as a list when in portrait mode, or as a live moving graph when in landscape mode. Choose between performance data for your hosts or your volumes, and select the metric you’d like to depict in the live graph.
Key features of the IBM XIV Mobile Dashboard app include:
•Secure access to the IBM XIV Storage system using an SSL connection over Wi-Fi or 3G link
•Monitoring an XIV system overall health status (full redundancy, rebuild progress, maintenance, etc.)
•Overall system performance metrics, including IOPs, bandwidth and latency
•Granular data showing performance metrics for individual volumes or hosts
•Live graphs showing any performance metric over recent time, for either the entire system or for an individual volume or host
