Eyeglass Reporting

Eyeglass offers these reports:

  1. Cluster reports cover the configuration summary
  2. RPO (Recovery Point Objectives) reports are generated automatically each night but can also be generated on demand. They include SyncIQ performance details for monitoring policies used for backup only versus DR.
    See RPO guide for details.
      Cluster Usage reporting (requires Cluster Storage Monitor License keys).
        See Cluster Storage Monitor admin guide for details.

        Reports are now available from the Reports on Demand Icon

        Eyeglass Cluster Config Reports

        Eyeglass collects key cluster settings for the PowerScale clusters it manages and makes them available in an HTML report format by email or on demand. Use the contents of this report to automate and keep up to date, the documentation of cluster configuration for DR and your DR run book.  This information is also valuable for IT planning, cluster expansion, networking and security.

          Cluster Configuration Email Report

          By default, the full cluster HTML report containing key cluster settings is emailed daily, at midnight, to all users who have been configured for email notification.

          Cluster Networking for Failover and Cluster Reports

          Cluster networking is now added to cluster reports and can also be viewed in the zone inventory tree (right-click on the Inventory element and Show properties like in the below example). This information is key to assisting with Access Zone failover. Each Access Zone maintains a mapping to subnet pools and configuration data.

          See the Failover Design Guide  (Eyeglass Failover Design Guide) for instructions on creating hints to allow Eyeglass to failover networking with SmartConnect Zone migration, SPN updates, and pool mapping. This information is also needed to assist with Runbook Robot configuration within an Access Zone, and will allow customers to verify complete failover and failback operations between sites using Eyeglass automation.
