Active IQ Unified Manager Discussions

The first release of API Services is now available !


The OnCommand API Services 1.0 release contains the following set of APIs to support data center monitoring for systems running clustered Data ONTAP 8.2 or 8.3.


The APIs can be broadly classified into the following three categories:


  1. Monitoring APIs - By using these APIs, you can retrieve information about logical and physical storage resources in the data center.
  2. Event APIs - By using these APIs, you can retrieve information about any events that occurred on the storage resources.
  3. Performance metrics APIs - By using these APIs, you can retrieve performance-related information about the storage resources


API Services 1.0 Supports:

  • Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 6.5
  • Java™ version 1.8
  • Clustered Data ONTAP 8.2 or 8.3
  • OnCommand Unified Manager 6.2 paired with OnCommand Performance Manager 1.1  

Let's download and get started !

Blue Medora published an interesting blog post titled Working with NetApp API Services – What You Need to Know that might be useful to anybody exploring the user of NetApp API Services.


I see that API services is supported on redhat. Can i run it on CentOS as well or will it just not work?



Hi Bever, 


CentOS is not supported with API-S 1.0RC1. We are providing support for CentOS in GA release that is around the corner. Just hang on for a while and you should be able to use API-S 1.0GA on CentOS 6.5. 





Thanks Arun, when is it expected to go GA?


AFAIK it should go GA within this month. Will let you know once GA is available.





is this a case where the API services will simply not work at all with CentOS today or is it simply a matter of supportability?


Its a matter of supportability. Also, you will not be able to install RC1 on CentOS as the installer checks for the OS and blocks the installation.
