How Metric Collection Works

VirtualWisdom performs the following multi‐step process to collect metrics.

  1. Logs in to EMC Unisphere for VMAX using the REST API username and password.

  2. Uses REST API calls to Unisphere to extract metric information.

If possible, the first metrics collection cycle backfills up to 2 hours' worth of metric data to provide quicker access to the collected metrics
