How to monitor The Enterprise File Fabric using SNMP

The Enterprise File Fabric runs on a hardened version of Linux, so many monitoring platforms will have agents that could be installed to gather metrics and details from the appliances, for example take a look at one of my previous blogposts for monitoring using Telegraf/InfuxDB/Grafana:

But what about monitoring using agentless  techniques? Well the most common method for this is using SNMP protocol to have monitoring systems query data from systems. While SNMP isn’t enabled by default, it’s easy enough to get installed.

Multi-Cloud Shared Team Folder Document Collaboration

One of the key, powerful features of the Enterprise File Fabric is the ability for teams to simply and easy  share and collaborate on files for the projects they are working on together, whatever the underlying local or cloud storage.  This can easily be teams that are located in the same building, within the same continent or even across the planet from one another.  The best part is that while the File Fabric can power this collaboration within an organization, it can also bridge the gap and securely allow teams across companies work on the same documents.

In this post, we’ll take a look at Shared Team Folders, allowing intra-organizational teams to work on the same file sets.  Future posts will look at link and folder sharing, when you need to collaborate inter-organizationally.
