PERFCDOT - ONTAP Performance Analysis

Overview

Duration: 3 days

This course enables you to collect and analyze system performance data from NetAppĀ® storage systems that run NetApp ONTAPĀ® 9 software. You learn how to interpret data and how to identify and implement changes that improve system efficiency. You also learn how to use system commands and features to monitor and enhance storage system performance. You learn from hands-on exercises, case studies, and technical discussions.

Objectives

This course focuses on enabling you to do the following:

  • Understand how a storage system running ONTAP 9 functions
  • Identify the commands and tools to use to collect and monitor storage system performance
  • Interpret performance data and identify hindrances to storage system performance
  • Use system commands and features to enhance storage system performance and efficiency
