The Hardware tab displays CPU utilization and memory usage for each node, and additional hardware information about appliances.

The Hardware tab is shown for all nodes.

Nodes page Hardware tab

To display a different time interval, select one of the controls above the chart or graph. You can display the information available for intervals of 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week, or 1 month. You can also set a custom interval, which allows you to specify date and time ranges.

To see details for CPU utilization and memory usage, hover your cursor over each graph.

Nodes Page > Hardware >Memory Usage Details

If the node is an appliance node, this tab also includes a section with more information about the appliance hardware.

View information about appliance Storage Nodes

The Nodes page lists information about service health and all computational, disk device, and network resources for each appliance Storage Node. You can also see memory, storage hardware, controller firmware version, network resources, network interfaces, network addresses, and receive and transmit data.

Steps
  1. From the Nodes page, select an appliance Storage Node.

  2. Select Overview.

    The Node information section of the Overview tab displays summary information for the node, such as the node’s name, type, ID, and connection state. The list of IP addresses includes the name of the interface for each address, as follows:

    • eth: The Grid Network, Admin Network, or Client Network.

    • hic: One of the physical 10, 25, or 100 GbE ports on the appliance. These ports can be bonded together and connected to the StorageGRID Grid Network (eth0) and Client Network (eth2).

    • mtc: One of the physical 1 GbE ports on the appliance. One or more mtc interfaces are bonded to form the StorageGRID Admin Network interface (eth1). You can leave other mtc interfaces available for temporary local connectivity for a technician in the data center.

      Nodes Page Overview Extended

      The Alerts section of the Overview tab displays any active alerts for the node.

  3. Select Hardware to see more information about the appliance.

    1. View the CPU Utilization and Memory graphs to determine the percentages of CPU and memory usage over time. To display a different time interval, select one of the controls above the chart or graph. You can display the information available for intervals of 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week, or 1 month. You can also set a custom interval, which allows you to specify date and time ranges.

  2. Review the Network Communication section.

    The Receive and Transmit tables show how many bytes and packets have been received and sent across each network as well as other receive and transmit metrics.

    Nodes Page Network Comm
  1. Select Storage to view graphs that show the percentages of storage used over time for object data and object metadata, as well as information about disk devices, volumes, and object stores.

    Storage Used - Object Data
    Storage Used - Object Metadata
    1. Scroll down to view the amounts of available storage for each volume and object store.

      The Worldwide Name for each disk matches the volume world-wide identifier (WWID) that appears when you view standard volume properties in SANtricity software (the management software connected to the appliance’s storage controller).

      To help you interpret disk read and write statistics related to volume mount points, the first portion of the name shown in the Name column of the Disk Devices table (that is, sdc, sdd, sde, and so on) matches the value shown in the Device column of the Volumes table.
