I have published a post about STOR2RRD 2.70 recently and I mentioned many times that this tool is my favorite tool for SAN monitoring. So I’ve updated our servers to the new version but there was a bug which STOR2RRD couldn’t retrieve performance data from EMC Unity systems.
STOR2RRD 2.70 can not retrieve performance data from EMC Unity with different firmware versions.
You got the below error on error log of your EMC Unity storage systems (Example log file name: /home/lpar2rrd/stor2rrd/logs/error.log-EMC-UNITY-XXX):
Global symbol "$port_wwn" requires explicit package name at /home/lpar2rrd/stor2rrd/bin/unityperf.pl line 2210.Global symbol "$port_wwn" requires explicit package name at /home/lpar2rrd/stor2rrd/bin/unityperf.pl line 2211.Execution of /home/lpar2rrd/stor2rrd/bin/unityperf.pl aborted due to compilation errors.
What’s The Solution?
Recently, STOR2RRD 2.70-1 has been released that includes the fix for issue:
