Thick to Thin -> need monitoring and alerting tools

Hello,

We are a small customer using only a FAS 2040 with 2 controllers and 36 disks in 2 aggregates.

We plan to migrate our 8 LUNS / volumes to 1 LUN / volume per controller while enabling Thin Provisionning and Volume Dedup.

- We want an efficient system to monitor and do stats about data volume growing. Which NetApp tool install / use ? The web My Auto Support is too slow to use.

- We want to set up email alerts about storage usage, what is the easyiest way ?

- Since updating to 8.1.4 we can't anymore access to http://abfa/na_admin

After authentication the browser displays a HTTP 500 error

Is that normal ?

Hi,

OnCommand System Manager is the tool to use to manage Data ONTAP 8.1 and higher as FilerView was removed starting with 8.1.

http://support.netapp.com/NOW/cgi-bin/software  =>   OnCommand System Manager

From the download page for OCSM:

Note: System Manager replaces FilerView® as the tool to manage storage systems running Data ONTAP® 8.1 or later

Thanks,

Kevin

Re: Thick to Thin -> need monitoring and alerting tools

Oncommand System Manager replaced FilerView. However to monitor system OnCommand Unified Manager (AKA DFM Data Fabric Manager) is the best for what you are trying to achieve.
