I have a Dell Powervault MD1000 and I would like to monitor the disk performance using Nimsoft. Where should I start? I'm still pretty new to NimSoft monitoring. What kind of performance metrics can be measured by Nimsoft software?
Nimsoft recently released a new probe that may be helpful for this, it's called the SNMP Toolkit Probe, as long as you have the MIB for this device this probe will allow you to easily setup monitoring of SNMP tables which is what you'll need to tackle this.

Feel free to share the config if you get this built out.
Note: Most likely you have to ask your Nimsoft contact for an Demo license for the snmptoolkit. As we did.
