EMC Smarts

You can install the EMC Smarts integration (now VMware Smart Assurance) to collect event data from a RabbitMQ Server.

Depending on which EMC Smarts suite you install, you may need to set up RabbitMQ separately. See the VMware Smart Assurance documentation for details on Smarts components.

When you use the integrations UI, you can only configure the visible properties. If you want to implement a more complex EMC Smarts LAM with custom settings, see Configure the EMC Smarts LAM.

Before You Begin

The Smarts integration has been validated with RabbitMQ v3.7.4 and Smarts v9.5. Before you start to set up your integration, ensure you have met the following requirements:

  • You have the host address and port of the RabbitMQ server.

  • You have credentials to connect to RabbitMQ.

  • You know the names of the Topic Exchange and Topic Queue used by RabbitMQ.

  • You have the name of your RabbitMQ Virtual Host, if used.

You can add multiple RabbitMQ Brokers and Topics to meet your requirements.

Configure the EMC Smarts Integration

To configure the Smarts integration:

  1. Navigate to the Integrations tab.

  2. Click EMC Smarts in the Monitoring section.

  3. Provide a unique integration name. You can use the default name or customize the name according to your needs.

  4. Provide connection details for your Smarts system.

You do not need to perform any integration-specific steps on your Smarts system. After you configure the integration, Smarts sends the events to Moogsoft Onprem.
