There's a number of freeware SNMP monitoring tools on the market, if setup correctly they'll do what you're after and this will help too:

Thank you very much.

Re: Monitoring Tools

Many performance metrics for NetApps are not exposed via SNMP (e.g. read/write latency per volume.)

These can only be accessed via the API.

Some free tools, with the right amount of cajoling and tender care, can get these.

A commercial solution such as http://www.LogicMonitor.com/ will automate the entire configuration, collection, graphing and has best practices alerts pre-defined.

Depends on whether you have an excess of time, or are willing to trade a little money for a lot of freed up time.

In this thread there is a description of using the Powershell toolkit to monitor individual objects (disks, protocols, etc) above and beyond what sysstat can provide.
