Product details and specifications
HPE 3PAR StoreServ Management Console (SSMC) is the HPE 3PAR management and reporting console that offers converged management of both File and Block on HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage systems.

HPE 3PAR StoreServ Management Console offers a modern look and consistent feel and a common interface and language with HPE Management tools such as HPE OneView. Designed to use the latest API (Application Program Interface) and UI (User Interface) technologies, HPE 3PAR SSMC centralizes all HPE 3PAR StoreServ management under a single pane of glass and offers converged management and reporting for both file and block. Accessible through web-based UI, you can run your operations as HPE 3PAR SSMC tasks with an improved user experience and better responsiveness. All the information you need from HPE 3PAR StoreServ is available at a glance with customizable reporting capabilities, eliminating the need for add-on software tools or diagnostics and troubleshooting. Assess what's happening across the entire data center in seconds via a simple dashboard and you are just one click away from collecting configuration and health information on any resource.

HPE 3PAR System Reporter is also fully integrated in SSMC and offers reporting templates, scheduled reports and threshold alerts.

What's New in HPE 3PAR StoreServ Management Console (SSMC) 3.4?
SSMC 3.4 enhances SSMC 3.3.1 with HPE 3PAR Performance Insights powered by HPE Infosight and other enhancements.

HPE 3PAR Performance Insights:
SSMC 3.4 introduces HPE 3PAR Performance Insights powered by HPE Infosight for HPE 3PAR StoreServ. These new performance analytics eliminate the guessing and time-consuming work involved with diagnosing bottlenecks and optimizing application performance. Instead of spending time tuning infrastructure with painful trial-and-error, customers are provided automated details that show the root cause to complex anomalies with application-aware insights.

HPE 3PAR Performance Insights offers machine-learned algorithms that are trained in the cloud and deployed on-premise. This capability enables a fast time-to-response and extends HPE Infosight support for dark sites. Following are additional capabilities of HPE 3PAR Performance Insights that helps:
  • Identify when performance issue is due to saturation
  • Plan workloads better with knowledge of available headroom
  • Identify root cause to complex anomalies with application-aware insights automatically.
  • Real time information about the saturation levels and headroom availability with respect to throughput
  • Insights into the performance of the array with respect to real time workload
Starting 3.4, SSMC will be supplied and should be deployed as a virtual appliance on VMware ESXi 6.0, 6.5 6.7 and Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 and 2016.
SSMC 3.3.1 will remain available as software installation on select Windows and Linux OS versions.

SSMC 3.4 includes below mentioned features.
General Enhancements:
  • View most resource utilized systems, performance impact, and volumes impacted by the performance issues.
  • View Top Performance Outliers, Top Systems By Saturation, Top Volume Hotspots By IO/s, and Top Volume Hotspots By Latency panels in dashboard.
  • View HPE InfoSight alerts on HPE 3PAR arrays in SSMC.
  • Add connectivity to HPE InfoSight, add Web proxy address, add Web proxy port, add Web proxy user, add Web proxy password.
  • Added advanced system performance and analytics reporting.

System Reporter:
  • The Advanced Analytics of the selected system identifies performance impact over a selectable period of time for throughput and IOPS for read and write workloads, separately.
  • The Advanced Analytics identifies volumes that have unusually high latencies and IOPS.
  • The Analytics of the selected system identifies resource utilization and performance impact over a selectable period of time.
  • The Schedule email option enables to configure email recipients for each report.
  • The save option enables the update of any changes made using the interactive menu to the self-authored reports instead of navigating to the Edit Reports dialog.
  • The save as option enables you to create a new report with the changes to the interactive menu in the public or system generated report.
  • An Email recipients field enables you to configure email recipients for each threshold alert.
