Hey Checkyourlogs Fans,

Tonight I had a call with a customer that was looking for specific counters to monitor for Storage Spaces Direct in Windows Server 2016. I had stumbled across a document a while back that came with the SCOM Management Pack download for Storage Spaces Direct. I reviewed this again and felt it would be a good thing to share with everyone.

It’s always a struggle to figure out what the good bad and ugly look like especially with performance counters.

You can grab a copy of this document here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=54700

When downloading you are going to look for a specific file that is part of the Management Pack called –

MS Server 2016 Storage Spaces Direct MP Guide.docx

Here are some samples from the guide:


I suggest reading this if you are serious about investigating the performance of your Storage Spaces Direct clusters.

Thanks and happy Performance Tuning,
