Panzura Data Services (was Vizion.ai) 1.7.6 introduces two critical monitoring enhancements, along with several bug fixes.

Date of Release: 1/15/2021

What's New 🔅

Alert Config

Alert Config introduces more precise monitoring for Panzura service performance, by allowing you to set thresholds for the Statistical Metrics of your Panzura systems, and sending immediate alerts when the thresholds are violated.

Users can set thresholds for the following groups of metrics:

  • System:
    • CPU Load Average
    • Memory Utilization
    • SBM Count
  • Storage:
    • Cache Hit
    • Cache Missed
    • Cloud Disk Usage
    • Dirty Cache
    • Local Disk Usage
    • Managed Storage Utilization
  • Cloud:
    • Cloud Upload Failure Rate
    • Cloud Download Failure Rate
    • Site Latency
    • Snapshots Behind
  • Event:
    • Event Level

Alerts are accessible under the Alert Settings menu. Here, thresholds can be set and alerts can be configured for notification through Email, Slack, and Microsoft Team, for both individual alerts for each metric, and scheduled reports.

Scheduled reports are automatic and adjustable recurrent reports that help customers to better manage alerts in an integrated way.

Snapshot Insight

Snapshot Insight introduces the ability for you to provide the Panzura support team with visibility into your data snapshots. That lets us better assist you with managing and troubleshooting the health and performance of your storage.

To use it, simply enable the Snapshot Insight option in Data Services and communicate the provided Dynamic Password to our support team. 

This visibility can be disabled at any time.
