System Model: FAS2552
Release 8.2.2RC2 Cluster-Mode
I have a single 2 node NetApp system in clustered mode.
Is there a NetApp tool used for monitoring, capacity and performance reporting?
With this being a small single system, what would be the best solution?

Oncommand Unified Manager requires a lot of system resources to get it going:
4 * CPU, not less than 9572 MHz
150 GB Disk space, 100GB for OCUM Install and 50GB for mssql
I'd also like to know if there is anything else besides System Manager that can provide basic performance and monitoring for ONTAP 9.1?

Hi John, the best tool for that is the OnCommand Performance Manager (onPrem) or ONTAP Analytics and Telemetry Services (OATS - OffPrem [AWS]).
The links are:
Performance Manager - > https://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/download/software/oncommand_pm/7.1/
Any doubts let me know

Thank you so much to everyone who responded.
So far, we have the following suggestions:
NetApp OnCommand Unified Manager 7.2
OnCommand Performance Manager (onPrem)
ONTAP Analytics and Telemetry Services (OATS - OffPrem [AWS])
The only tool I currently am aware we have is Oncommand System Manager 3.1.2, which doesn't have any reporting of capacity and performance capability.
Which of the listed solutions is the best choice? Are all free tools?

We've been an OnCommand Unified Manager + Performance Manager (7.1) shop since we rolled ONTAP 9. Now that the two tools are integrated into 7.2 I'm a huge fan. The old tool was a little clunky when you'd switch between a health and performance view but since they're all in one right now it's very easy to use.
I listened to the OATS TechONTAP podcast and it seems like that would be a great tool for sleuthing out bigger performance issues (like gathering a perfstat used to provide) but for a lot of what we need in our day-to-day operations, OCUM 7.2 fits the bill - and is free...
Hope that helps,
