Integration DataCore SANSymphony

Installation Performance Analyzer DataCore SANSymphony v.6.x

DataCore SANSymphony Server

Configure the Metrics Export

Open the SANsymphony-V Performance Monitor Configuration program. Make sure you see the same screen as shown below, as there are 2 different Performance Monitor Tools.

You can find a more detailed guideline by DataCore, how to work with Performance Monitor Configuration:

Add the following counters to be exported:

Category: DataCore Servers

Instances: All Instances


Category: DataCore Server SCSI ports

Instances: All Instances


Category: DataCore Disk pools

Instances: All Instances


Category: DataCore Physical Disk

Instances: All Instances


Category: DataCore Virtual Disks

Instances: All Instances


Close SANsymphony-V Performance Monitor Configuration program after the change!

Download and Install the DataCollection Service

Download Link – opvizor-datacore Datensammler:
Unblock the archive! Please make sure to unblock the downloaded archive:

Unzip the content of opvizor-datacore zip file to a directory you want the application to run from, our recommendation is C:\Program Files\telegraf
Now you need to change the string pa_appliance_ip in the telegraf.conf file urls = [“http://pa_appliance_ip:8086”] to the IP address or network name of the Performance analyzer virtual appliance.
Open a Windows Command Line or PowerShell Session having administrative rights

Run the following command:
“C:\Program Files\Telegraf\telegraf.exe” –config “C:\Program Files\Telegraf\telegraf.conf” –config-directory “C:\Program Files\Telegraf\telegraf.d” –service install
That installs the Data collection service and it collects the MS Windows data of the server as well as the datacore data.
If you want to collect Windows data from the other Datacore hosts in the cluster as well, please install telegraf as well, but delete the “C:\Program Files\Telegraf\telegraf.d” folder!

To manage the telegraf data collector:

net stop telegraf

net start telegraf

Virtual Appliance

Create a new data source

Add the Datacore data source named DataCoreInflux:

Click Save & Test.
Now, you need to import the DataCore Dashboard json file that can be found here:

When importing the dashboard please select DataCoreInflux as the Influx datasource.


After a couple of minutes, you should see the first data within your DataCore SANSymphony Dashboard.
If you want to uninstall the service for any reason, you can do so by running telegraf –service uninstall within the installation directory as an administrator.
