3rd Party Storage Manangement Tools

I wonder if there is anything written about what seems (to me at least) common sense on the disadvantages and possible issues that might arise when 3rd party monitoring tools like stor2rrd issuing commands straight to the SVPs while HDVM and HTNM is also tracking and monitoring the Storage Units.


My opinion is that all 3rd party gathering/managing applications should go via HDVM (either by SMI-S or Rest) and stay away from the SVPs.


I'd appreciate some feedback on this matter.
