But wait, there’s more:

  • You can monitor and predict usage of Isilon storage clusters. Prediction is based on the rate of growth of capacity usage over time and extrapolated to identify when the capacity reaches 90%.
  • You can take advantage of the enhanced dashboard, including at-a-glance infographics that provide current health, status, and operations information for your monitored cluster.
  • You can easily monitor IPv6 data breakouts. InsightIQ reports IPv6 breakouts as separate clients instead of presenting them as one big generic IPv6 client group.
  • You can optionally communicate telemetry data to EMC through EMC Secure Remote Support.
  • InsightIQ 4.1.1 is fully compatible with OneFS 8.0.1 and IsilonSD Edge.
  • InsightIQ 4.1.1 is available as a free licensed product, which means that you can get community support through the EMC Community Network (ECN) Isilon Community.The new LDAP authentication tab in the web user interface allows you to point your InsightIQ instance to an LDAP server for authentication.

    We recently upgraded from 3.2 to 4.1.1 and found lot of bugs, our upgrade wasn’t as expected, the .sh file missed lot of directories and in the END, we weren’t able to access the GUI or execute the IIQ commands in CLI

    Hope this get fixed and we get the stable code

    • Todd Jolley says:

      Hi Pradeep-
      Upgrades from IIQ 3.2 to IIQ 4.1.1 are supported, and we are sorry to hear about your experience. In order to get more information, please engage with Isilon support on this issue (if you haven’t already). Support has the ability to create a request for engineering to update the IIQ product based on their troubleshooting results.

    I was wondering if there is a online “walk though” to allow a better view of how this software works.

    Static images are nice but even a recorded walk through would allow for a better feeling of how this software works.

    Thanks a lot!
