Sightline Releases SNMP and SMI-S Interface Agents

The latest Sightline Power Agents now include Interface Agents for SNMP and SMI-S data collection.

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an industry standard for network management, providing visibility into network-attached devices such as switches and routers. The Sightlineâ„¢ Power Agent for Windows Systems includes an Interface Agent designed to retrieve availability and performance data from SNMP devices. The SNMP Interface Agent uses SNMP v2 to collect metrics from switches and routers that support SNMP, and then includes those metrics in the Sightline trace file.

The Sightline SMI-S Interface Agent allows users to collect performance statistics from any disk array that has a corresponding Storage Management Initiative Specification (SMI-S) version 1.4 or above compliant provider. The Interface Agent comes with a generic SMI-S configuration and custom configurations for EMC Symmetrix and EMC CLARiiON arrays.
