Cisco Releases Data Center Management App

Recommended Posts

Cisco's free Intersight mobile application has both the essential alarms page, and three dashboards breaking data up into Server, HyperFlex Cluster, or Fabric Interconnect views to present essential data to users. These dashboards keep most of the information immediately visible, but unfortunately, users do have to scroll down to see everything Cisco thinks a customer might want to know. In terms of diagnostic features, I want to talk in more detail about two of them. The first is that the app can be used to monitor the progress of requests initiated through Intersight via the requests tab which in turn is accessed via the top-right menu tab. For instance, if someone kicks off an OS installation on one of the servers being monitored by Cisco Intersight, the install will show up on the request list. Tapping the request pulls up more detailed information including execution flow and how close to completion the request is. A nice, simple interface and Cisco included a search filter to help find the exact request you're looking for. The second diagnostic feature I want to mention is that the app can turn server locator LEDs on (and presumably off) to help on-sight staff find and address a specific server.
