With current release of clariion probe we get error messages like "Failed to collect data for monitor SP A.Percent...", but in that message there is no information about from which device it tries to read collect the metrics. That is not a problem if you have only one storage device you are monitoring, but when you have many, possibly all different types then searching the actual cause can be pretty painful. OK, we can add log level and start debugging, but then with multiple storage devices with zillions of disks you get some gazillions of lines in that log file, also creating again a lot of load in that monitoring server.

 

So, adding one line of code in probe and telling the instance what the probe is checking in that alarm

would save a lot of time for customers searching what device is actually causing the problem.
