For Vplex performance, we are SSHing to the management stations to retrieve via SCP protocol performance archive files that the management station *should* automatically generate on Vplex 5.3 and higher firmware.
Please not the emphasis on "should" - we have seen some cases where customers will need to contact EMC because this is not happening as expected.
Currently, the OCI Vplex datasource will discover from an inventory standpoint 1 or 2 Vplex clusters, depending upon whether they are not, or are, in a geo/metro cluster relationship. While we can discover both clusters from one management station, we need to retrieve the performance files from the "local" management station for each cluster.
There, the final version of the .xml that controls the datasource parameters and exposes options to end users has 2 sets of fields for management stations and credentials
Vmax - I don't have any hands on time setting up that config. EMC Solutions Enabler + SMI-S has a testsmiprovider CLI tool - within it :
Active - get you to the "Active Controls" menu
reg - "Add Statistics Access Point"
I don't know what you will see here by default. The screenshot I have shows an IP address for host ID, usage of port 8443, and a username listed.
