Each Dell Integrated System SU comes configured with robust monitoring and alerting capabilities. The HLH has enabled the Hyper-V role to host several guest VMs, including the guest VMs shown in the following table:
|Management VM||Hosting Secure Connect Gateway for automatic support-case creation for hardware alerts.|
|Secure Connect Gateway|| |
|Azure Stack Hub Administration Portal|| |
The Health Resource Provider exposes the health and alerts for the Microsoft Azure Stack Hub software infrastructure components. The provider is viewable through the Azure Stack Hub Administration Portal or programmatically using REST APIs and PowerShell.
There is a limited number of hardware alerts that are exposed through the Health Resource Provider. However, it complements the greater level of monitoring detail that Secure Connect Gateway provides for server hardware components.
The server iDRACs poll for alerts and failures. Then they forward the events using Redfish protocol to the Secure Connect Gateway for automatic ticket creation.
The Health Resource Provider manages the Azure Stack Hub software infrastructure component health and alerts. The Region Management monitoring tile in the Azure Stack Hub Administration Portal displays this information, as shown in the following figure:
Each alert displays details such as severity, state, created time, updated time, and description of the event, as shown in the following figure:
Prescriptive guidance on remediating each issue is provided through REST APIs and PowerShell.
The System Center Management Pack (SCOM) for Microsoft Azure Stack Hub enables you to monitor the availability of the Azure Stack Hub infrastructure. The management pack runs on a specified resource pool, and then uses various Azure Stack Hub APIs to remotely discover and collect instrumentation information, such as deployments, regions, and other resources.
