Thanks for your feedback.
I am looking for information specific to Unisphere for VMAX. (has the performance function in Unisphere replaced SPA?)
And if so it was previously possible to configure data collection from within the SPA GUI and I am hoping to document the same equivalent process for Unisphere.
I am familiar with the Solutions Enabler way of collecting performance stats but need to accommodate users of the GUI also.
The Unisphere for VMAX product guide on support.emc.com contains information on how to configure monitoring, look in the Performance section under the Settings subsection. SPA was part of SMC and both of those products were replaced by Unisphere for VMAX. The performance component is built in and is part of the same GUI now.
The performance metrics are not stored in the native TTP format that you will find when running the storstpd daemon but in the Unisphere database, so if you want to export data in BTP format you have to go to the performance section of Unisphere and run a report using the BTP format.
