Storage Performance Monitoring

NetApp Storage Performance Monitoring Capabilities:

NetApp NAS and SAN Performance Monitoring: Monitor NetApp storage performance by observing which volumes are assigned to which storage processors to confirm proper load balancing. Comprehensively monitor NetApp storage arrays by drilling deeper into every array component. Get visibility into LUNs, volumes, physical hard drives, operational status of each array, aggregates, FC ports on switches and arrays, and more.

Capacity Planning and Management

Get intelligent storage capacity planning for your NetApp storage environments. Start tracking performance history and collecting data to help you determine where there are hot spots in your storage, especially during peak traffic hours, and where there are potential failures in your NetApp NAS and SAN. A storage management software will allow you to compile key metrics like rate of storage growth, capacity predictions, and cost forecasts. Collect storage capacity planning information dynamically for your physical and virtual infrastructure, and analyze historical storage performance to expose hot spots, outage potential, and peak traffic hours.
