Running Avid Storage Manager (ASM). This document explains how to setup an ASM sequential read test on the following products. Unity Lanshare EX, LP. Unity Mediarray ZX, LP, XT. Unity Media Engine. NOTE: The ASM software is not installed with the original installation of the Unity File Manager, or Mediarray software. You must install ASM separately. If you have a copy of the Unity software downloaded to your CPU, or if you have an official installation disk, the installer for ASM is found inside of the Unity\WIN\ASM folder. You can download the latest version of the Unity software from Avid.com. Once ASM is installed, you will want to ensure that nobody is currently connected to the Unity. Once everyone is disconnect you can stop the File Manager service. The ASM software will not run if the File Manager service is running. Be sure that your Monitor Tool says the server is not running before proceeding. 1. You can run ASM directly from Unity Lanshare EX, LP, Unity Mediarray ZX, LP, XT, or Unity Media Engine.
