What exactly is it you are interested in?
dynaTrace's out-of-the-box capabilities provide you I/O information from your application (through the agent) as well as from any OS Instance (through OS Monitors). If you have a specific storage solution that provides performance relevant information you can simply create a monitor that pulls in data from that storage solution in case it exports metrics.

Is this capability available is the HOST agent to get these metrics. The customer is looking for getting SAN Performance / Availability information.
Additionally there is a open standard for SAN Monitoring using SMI-S Agents
Vendors like HP have SMI-S Clients which can provide CLI interface.
Another route could be using a ssh session similar to what Nagios does.
Nagios has a script to check the SAN status http://exchange.nagios.org/directory/Plugins/Hardware/Storage-Systems/SAN-and-NAS/3PAR-check-script/details
Can we use a monitoring plugin to get these metrics?
IBM FileNet sesnors or plugins? 7 Answers
