HOW THE SAN HEALTH PROCESS WORKS

The SAN Health family gives you powerful tools that help you focus on optimizing your SAN rather than manually tracking its components. A wide variety of useful features make it easier for you to collect data, identify potential issues, and check your results over time. As a result, you can greatly increase your productivity while enhancing your SAN operations.

Time-saving Reports
To provide a comprehensive report about your SAN environment, the free SAN Health Diagnostics Capture utility utilizes a data capture application and a back-end report processing engine. After it captures switch diagnostic data, the utility automatically generates a Visio topology diagram and a detailed "snapshot" report. This report contains summary information as well as specific details about SAN fabrics, switches, and individual ports. Other useful items include alerts, historical performance graphs, and recommended best practices.

Enhanced Change Tracking
Because it provides a point-in-time snapshot of your SAN, SAN Health Diagnostics Capture can be invaluable to your change-tracking process. For instance, you can use it to track traffic pattern changes in weekly or monthly increments. And with a built-in scheduler, you can run it after primary business hours for added safety and convenience.
