    Troubleshooting issues with collecting asset, capacity, and configuration metadata just got easier!

    If you are having issues with collecting asset, capacity, and configuration metadata for storage systems in IBM Storage Insights you can now remedy your situation immediately by starting probes instantly.

    1. From the Resources menu, click Block Storage Systems, File Storage Systems, or Object Storage Systems.
    2. Right-click one or more storage systems, and then click Data Collection > Restart Data Collection.
    Note: The Restart Data Collection action restarts both probe and performance data collection.

    What about the newly added switches?

    To start a probe for switches, from the Resources menu, click Switches. Select the Chassis tab and right-click a chassis from where the switch is associated, and then click Data Collection > Restart Data Collection.
