2.52

It fixes a few issues that appeared in 2.50 and adds a few enhancements.

Enhancements

  • Huawei OceanStor/Dorado: add model & firmware version to HW configuration
  • Huawei OceanStor/Dorado: added oversubscription and virtual capacity metrics
  • Reporter: added CSV capacity report for storage pools
  • SAN: added "Total available" and "Free" ports to configuration table
  • LAN: added CPU/memory support for smaller switches

Fixes

  • IBM SVC: there could appear gaps in data after 2.50 upgrade especially on 6-8 nodes clusters, fixed
  • IBM FlashSystem 9100: added port type NVMe
  • IBM FlashSystem 900/840: a few fixes, definitely upgrage to this release
  • EMC Unity: fix for new firmware releases 4.5+
  • SAN alerting: in some cases, repeat time was ignored, fixed
  • SAN Brocade: enc_out, disc_c3, link_fail, loss_sync metrics were not collected, fixed
