About this task
InfiniBox provides visibility to the status and health of the system hardware. This view includes the status of the system rack, nodes, enclosures, and drives.
The System Health and the Hardware Components part of the screen provide clickable visual hints on the system health. Going over an indicator allow focusing on a health issue.
Visual health indicators

Two nodes might turn yellow when the BBU stops providing power to one of their PSUs.
BBU is missing
BBU turns red.
One PSU failure

Both PSU failure
- The node that is fed by both failed PSU turns red
- The nodes that are fed by only one failed PSU turn yellow
The node view provides the following information about the node and its components.
- BBU Connectivity - the node communicates with the BBU
- BBU Protection - the node receives current from the BBU
Internal switch failure
This issue is reported by an event, with no GUI visibility.
Enclosure is fed by only one PSU
The enclosure turns yellow.
Enclosure that is not fed by either PSU
The enclosure turns red.
Node - enclosure connectivity
- No connectivity – the enclosure turns red
- Partial connectivity – the Node turns red
Enclosure - drive warning / error
The enclosure is marked with an icon:
- Yellow – for warning
- Red – for error
Internal disk failure
The failed disk turns red.
The node view
The Node view displays the Node along with its local and SSD drives.
The node's patch panel
Clicking on the Node’s Back button brings up the patch panel. The patch panel displays the active ports of the Node.
Click the Node View button to return to the Node’s view.
Enclosure and disk health
The Enclosure visual indicator displays the health status of both the Enclosure and its disk drives.
The following image provides an example of a health indicator that provides information on a Warning state of a disk drive within an Enclosure. As indicated on the image, the health of the Enclosure is OK.
Clicking the Enclosure that is colored red (above) opens a detailed view of the Enclosure’s drives along with their exact status (below).
