Joe, if you configure all disk into single units you might not find
the tool too useful as a regular line chart should be clear enough for
a few units and NMON only runs on AIX & Linux.

The servers I work with we group the disks as JBOD (just a bunch of
disks) and we relay on the SAN Storage Servers (and multiple paths of
course) for reliability.
