Creating a report to group volume relationships by source of failure

You can create a report that groups volumes by the reason the relationship is in an unhealthy state.

Before you begin

About this task

Use the following steps to create a custom view that group volumes by source of failure, and then schedule a report to be generated for that view.

Steps

  1. In the left navigation pane, click Storage > Volumes.
  2. In the View menu, select Relationship > All Relationships.
  3. Select Show/Hide to make sure the "Relationship Health" and "Unhealthy Reason" columns appear in the view.
    Add or remove other columns to create a view that is important for your report.
  4. Drag the "Relationship Health" and "Unhealthy Reason" columns near the "State" column.
  5. Click the filter icon, add the following filter, and then click Apply Filter:
    • Relationship health is bad
  6. Click the top of the "Unhealthy Reason" column to group the volume relationships by source of failure.
  7. Save the view with a specific name that reflects what the view is showing, for example "Vol relationships by failure".
  8. Click the Scheduled Reports button on the inventory page.
  9. Enter a name for the report schedule and complete the other report fields, then click the checkmark () at the end of the row.
    The report is sent immediately as a test. After that, the report generates and is sent by email to the recipients listed using the specified frequency.

After you finish

Based on the results shown in the report, you can investigate the source and impact of each type of failure.
