Silencing storage controller alarms
The 7FiveFive system supports multiple storage controller platforms such as Dell PERC and Broadcom MegaRAID. On most NAS systems, Broadcom MegaRAID cards are used to connect to external storage devices. The storage controllers are responsible for presenting multiple disks as a single volume and ensuring that data safety is not impacted as a result of a failed disk. When a disk fails, the storage controller will often sound an alarm to alert administrators of a fault. The dashboard will also show this as an event and will alert 7FiveFive engineers. Once the issue has been detected, it is often desirable to stop the alarm so as not to disturb operational staff or other users.
