Manage the Data

We have quite a few very large ONTAP "filservers."  Previously we would use Treesize Pro to help manage the content and we continue to use that now but I am wondering is there a better tool?  What are other people using to manage the file data?

 

Thank you,

Erik

Re: Manage the Data

Check out Varonis.  They have a tight partnership with NetApp.  It's mostly used as a file access auditing tool, but they do have other features related to filesystem consumption metrics that you're looking for.  https://www.varonis.com/products/data-transport-engine/

 

Varonis leverages fpolicy, so it doesn't necessarily have to traverse the directory structure.  Works much faster than something like Tree Size or FolderSizes.
