    Metric details

    This topic lists the Configuration and Performance metrics collected by the IBM SVC-Storwize ETL module for entities such as storage systems, storage pools, and storage volumes.

    Note

    By default, extended level metrics will not be imported by the ETL.To import them, you will have to set the Collection level to [4] Extended. For more information about Aging Class Mapping, refer to the topic Adding and modifying metric profiles.
