In this section, we will explain some of the basic features and functions of CAM software 6.5.
CAM software 6.5 allows you to create and modify array configurations, such as volumes, RAID groups, and host groups. You can also assign access rights and properties to the volumes and host groups. To configure an array, you need to select the array from the navigation tree and click on the "Configure" tab. You can then use the configuration wizard or the advanced configuration mode to create or modify the array configuration.
CAM software 6.5 enables you to update the firmware of the arrays and their components, such as controllers, drives, and expansion modules. You can download the latest firmware from My Oracle Support or from a local directory. To update the firmware, you need to select the array from the navigation tree and click on the "Maintenance" tab. You can then use the firmware update wizard or the manual firmware update mode to perform the firmware update.
CAM software 6.5 provides you with various tools and reports to monitor the performance of the arrays and their components. You can view real-time statistics, historical trends, and alerts for different performance metrics, such as throughput, latency, IOPS, and utilization. To monitor the performance, you need to select the array from the navigation tree and click on the "Monitor" tab. You can then use the performance dashboard or the performance reports to view the performance data.
CAM software 6.5 notifies you of any events or issues that occur on the arrays and their components. You can view the event log, which records all the events with their severity, date, time, source, and description. You can also configure email notifications, which send you an email message when a critical or major event occurs. To view or configure the event notification, you need to select the array from the navigation tree and click on the "Events" tab. You can then use the event log or the email notification settings to manage the event notification.
CAM software 6.5 assists you in troubleshooting any problems that may arise on the arrays and their components. You can run diagnostic tests, which check for any errors or failures on the hardware or software components. You can also collect support data, which gathers information about the system configuration, status, logs, and performance for analysis and resolution. To troubleshoot an array, you need to select the array from the navigation tree and click on the "Troubleshoot" tab. You can then use the diagnostic tests or the support data collection to troubleshoot the array. 061ffe29dd
