Cluster monitoring

You can monitor the health, performance, and status of the Isilon cluster.

Using the OneFS dashboard from the web administration interface, you can monitor the status and health of the OneFS system. Information is available for individual nodes, including node-specific network traffic, internal and external network interfaces, and details about node pools, tiers, and overall cluster health. You can monitor the following areas of the Isilon cluster health and performance:
