Querying and annotating data centers

You use queries to associate your annotations with the appropriate assets in your environment. In this example, we will associate Data Center annotations with selected assets.

During data source acquisition, Insight gathers (among other information) the names of each asset it discovers. For this example, we will assume that all of your storage arrays have been named according to the data center in which they reside, such as "SVL_NN_<label>" for arrays residing in Sunnyvale. Insight queries make annotating these assets simple.

If you wish to associate the "SVL" annotation with other assets, create a new query and follow these steps for each asset type you desire.

Repeat these steps for assets in each of your data centers.
