The SANtricity System Manager tab enables you to access SANtricity System Manager without having to configure or connect the management port of the storage appliance. You can use this tab to review hardware diagnostic and environmental information as well as issues related to the drives.

The SANtricity System Manager tab is shown for storage appliance nodes.

Using SANtricity System Manager, you can do the following:

  • View performance data such as storage array level performance, I/O latency, storage controller CPU utilization, and throughput

  • Check hardware component status

  • Perform support functions including viewing diagnostic data, and configuring E-Series AutoSupport

Note To use SANtricity System Manager to configure a proxy for E-Series AutoSupport, see the instructions in administeringStorageGRID.

To access SANtricity System Manager through Grid Manager, you must have the Storage Appliance Administrator permission or Root Access permission.
