Storage Monitoring

Storage Monitoring

Gain a unified visibility on your entire san infrastructure.


Storage Monitoring by Sentry Software monitors the health and performance of all SAN components to help administrators diagnose any availability issue. The backup hardware infrastructure, the backup applications, and the backup servers can also be monitored to early detect backup and restore problems.

Fully monitor major storage devices and backup systems

  • Unique and comprehensive monitoring solution for multi-vendor SANs
  • Exhaustive monitoring of all layers of a storage device (controllers, storage pools, volumes, etc.)
  • Continuous supervision of the overall traffic and activity of all storage systems
  • Advanced coverage of major backup solutions' key areas such as jobs, clients, activity logs, tape drives, etc.

Quickly detect storage bottlenecks and performance issues

  • Intuitive graphical user interface to easily detect suspicious behaviors
  • Rapid fixing of SAN-related issues to better meet customer expectations
  • Effortless rationalizing of disk space utilization to avoid catastrophic data loss and corruption
  • Relentless hunt for high processor utilization to prevent possible performance degradations
