Active IQ Unified Manager 9.13

Monitoring MetroCluster replication

Contributors netapp-manini netapp-shwetav

You can monitor and diagnose the overall health condition of the logical connections while mirroring the data. You can identify the issues or any risk that interrupts mirroring of cluster components such as aggregates, nodes, and storage virtual machines.

Unified Manager uses system health alerts to monitor the status of the components and connectivity in the MetroCluster configuration.

What you’ll need

Both the local and remote cluster in the MetroCluster configuration must be added to Unified Manager

Viewing replication for MetroCluster over IP configurations

For MetroCluster over IP configurations, the data replication status is displayed in the topology peek view for a cluster protected by MetroCluster over IP from the following views from the Unified Manager left navigation pane:

  • Storage > Clusters > Protection: MetroCluster view

  • Protection > Relationships > Relationship: MetroCluster view

Viewing replication for MetroCluster over FC configurations

Follow these steps to determine any issues in the data replication for MetroCluster over FC configuration.

  1. In the left navigation pane, click Storage > Clusters.

    A list of the monitored clusters is displayed.

  2. From the Health: All Clusters view, click the name of the cluster for which you want to view MetroCluster replication details. On the Cluster / Health details page, click the MetroCluster Replication tab.

    The topology of the MetroCluster configuration to be replicated is displayed at the local site in the corresponding cluster object area with the information about the remote site where the data is being mirrored. If you move the pointer over the icon, you can view detailed information about the generated event.

You can use the information displayed in the Cluster / Health details page to rectify any replication issues. If you discover mirroring issues in your MetroCluster configuration, you must log in to System Manager or access the ONTAP CLI to resolve the issues.
