I use to work integrated Operation Manager and Performance Advisor as well as DFM. But, now I have OnCommand Unified Manager. In P.A, I can pull out graph on latency / throughput based on volumes / protocols. Can OnCommand Unified Manager do the same, or P.A. is additional component? Can sombody PLEASE tell me if it can replace Pefromance Advisor, and if DFM is included?
The complete tool set for OnCommand Suite changed for clustered data ontap compared to 7mode.
OnCommand Unified Manager is a exception monitoring tool, with some very basic reporting and some level of integration with Workflow Automation for SnapMirror and SnapVault Management.
It does capacity, inventory and protection monitoirng but NO performance monitoirng or alerting.Also it doenst have many of the functionalites of OCUM 5.x or DFM 4.x that you may know in the 7Mode world.
OnCommand Performance Manager 1.1 does Performance Analytics and some basic performance data collection. The data collection part is availbe via some toolchest plugin IIRC.
It doest compare to PA 4.x and later, where you could collect the metrics you want, retention time and colleciton interval. But it does some awesome analystics and dynamic thresholding unlike the PA.
OnCommand Workflow Automation is a automation framework that kind of takes the place of Protection and Provisioning Manager of the 7Mode world in cDOt.
It does a lot of things and a very powerful tool. IMHO, its the only above par tool in OnCommand suite that brings in better functionalites than its 7Mode cousion.
If you roughly want to compare how a OnCommand Suite in 7Mode map to cDOT it would look like this.
