HPE Recovery Manager Central monitoring and settings demo

In this Around the Storage Block video blog
we’re going to look at HPE Recovery Manager I’m going to walk through the monitoring and
general settings. This is the first screen you see when you log
in to Recovery Manager Central or RMC. The dashboard allows you to view today’s
copy jobs , view and download copy policy execution status, get a summary of the copies
by type and age, and understand the efficiency of the RMC backups. The Copy Policy Execution chart provides success
to failure ratio of the completed protection jobs in RMC. The graph maps every execution of the policy
over the time period that you set. Click the download icon to download the copy
policy execution data in CSV format. Copies by Type: Displays the number of copies
that are available for each copy type. Colors are used to depict the various copy
types which are: Snapshots, Remote Snapshots, Express Protects, and Catalyst Copies. Copies by Age: Provides you an account of
the cost of copies. The graph displays the types of copies and
the corresponding ages of these copies. Backup Efficiency: Displays the effective
savings that you get by using RMC over a time period of 24 hours, 7 days, and 30 days. Copy Policy Protection Tiers: Displays the
number of resources and their levels of protection based on the current policy assignments. Next we’ll look at Activities. The Activity screen lists all the user initiated tasks. The screen allows you to filter the jobs based
on a selected Job Status, Category, Initiator, and Time. The different colors of the status icons depict
the current state of the listed resources. This can be even used to troubleshoot an
encountered error. You can further select an action to view the
task progress. The policy execution displays the details
related to the copy policies and the associated copies. Schedules. After the copy policies are assigned to resources,
schedules are automatically created by RMC. The Schedules screen provides an overview
of all the schedules that the appliance is running. The Job Density graph projects the workload
of RMC over a time period of 24 hours, 7 days, or 30 days. The spikes in the graph denote the time when
the workload on RMC is high and the troughs denote when the workload is low. Based on the pattern observed from the graph,
HPE recommends you to plan your new jobs when the workload on RMC is low. The Recovery Objectives graph provides details
about the copy policies that you have assigned for various resources, and how these resources
are protected by the combination of Recovery Point Objectives and Recovery Time Objectives. You can view the schedules specific to an
application plug-in. You can also suspend, resume, edit the selected
schedule using the Actions drop down. Settings. The Settings screen enables you to configure
and manage various configurations of the appliance. The general panel in the Settings screen displays
software version and configurations of the appliance. An upgrade button is available for upgrading
the software. However, you cannot upgrade to RMC 6.0.0 from
previous versions. Time and Locale: allows you to update the
current time zone and locale. Select a time zone from dropdown. The current date and time are automatically
reflected. Networking: allows you to change the network
settings. You can only change the Host name, Gateway,
and DNS server. Service Status: you can stop a specific application
service. Appliances preferences: this allows you to
configure the various appliance preferences. You can modify the Activity Retention. You can add or modify notification. You can register with HPE InfoSight. You can view the Web SSL certificate summary. Catalog Protection helps in scheduling the
RMC catalog backups. If RMC is down and permanently unavailable,
you can deploy a new RMC and restore the backed-up catalogs. HPE recommends you to schedule daily catalog
protections. You can add or import the Catalog protect
in this window. That completes this demonstration of Recovery
Manager Central monitoring and settings options. You can find product documentation at hpe.com/storage/rmc/docs. You can learn more about RMC at hpe.com/storage/rmc. As always, you can find me on Twitter as @CalvinZito. And our blog is at
