OneIQ Pulse is a unified agent-less data collector that supports various platforms. This article explains how to collect inventory and performance data from Azure Stack HCI systems.
Choose Microsoft Azure Stack HCI option in "Select Discovery Target" menu
2. Enter hostname, username and password for the Microsoft Azure Stack HCI endpoint
Viewing discovered endpoints
Upon successful discovery, a new endpoint tile will appear in the Dashboard screen and display the IP address, credentials used and the current endpoint status.
OneIQ Pulse does not display tiles for individual virtual machines or other managed resources. This detailed information is only available in the OneIQ Portal.
Microsoft Azure Stack HCI is discovered via its cluster FQDN, or cluster virtual IP (VIP).
When the Create button is clicked, OneIQ Pulse will attempt to discover the specified hostname or IP address and check if the Azure Stack HCI responds. The discovery process typically takes less than 10 minutes. During this time, OneIQ Pulse connects to the Azure Stack HCI and attempts to login and identify the target endpoint.
If the endpoint is successfully discovered, OneIQ Pulse will
Set its status to Detected and
Automatically schedule inventory and performance data collection tasks
After a baseline of inventory and performance data is collected, OneIQ Pulse will switch the endpoint status to Collecting and continue gathering
Performance data every 5 minutes
Inventory data every 1 hour
Each operation usually takes less than minute, but may take longer in larger environments.
Best Practice: Check data collection after 3-4 hours to ensure that all endpoints are still being successfully monitored.
