OnCommand(DFM) and its related Technical Reports
2011-07-13 04:26 AM
I have always wondered for one place from where I can access all TR related to DFM.Finally ended-up creating a doc for my self, thought it would be useful to others too,
that's the reason I am posting it on communities.
This TR describe the Best Practices that need to be followed while implementing,architect and use DFM and its suite of products.
The updated one for OnCommand 5.0 is available as KB article in the link below.
The TR below is as of DFM 4.0
This TR provides the necessary information to allow Operations Manager, Provisioning Manager, and
Protection Manager administrators to choose the correct system for hosting the DataFabric® Manager server.
And also to split them based on functionality while reaching sizing limitation.
The updated one for OnCommand Unified Manger 5.x is available as KB article in the link below
To efficiently manage storage capacity,storage administrators require tools to view current utilization
of the resources, change in utilization over a period of time, trend and forecast utilization in future,
charge users for the capacity utilized and alert administrators to identify and resolve imminent problems.
This document describes the various tools provided by NetApp Operations Manager for capacity-management.
This TR gives a step by step details on how to configure High Availability for DFM on Windows using Microsoft Cluster Server (MSCS) and on Linux using Veritas Cluster Server (VCS).
This TR describe, how users can access DFM database view and export both DFM and Performance Adviser data.
Using BI tools like Crystal Report, BIRT, Cognos and any JDBC or ODBC
The Performance Adviser document referenced in this article helps in:
- Understanding how to use Performance Advisor to monitor and generate alerts when there is performance degradation
- Identifying key counters that must be monitored and the thresholds that must be set initially
Once the user gets familiar with Performance Adviser and its capabilities in troubleshooting performance issues, the threshold values can be fine tuned
to suit the requirements. However, a better way of finding the correct threshold values for a workload is to use the base-lining feature in Performance Adviser.
A methodology for doing this is also discussed in the document.
This TR describes how to optimize the storage space used to store performance information.
This document outlines current challenges with large deployments of DataFabric Manager Server, and to propose possible
alternatives to single instances of DFM that become unresponsive or crash. DFM deployments can consist of one to many
parts. Those being Operations Manager, Performance Adviser, Provisioning Manager and Protection Manager.
This TR explains how to set up the Disaster Recovery Support for DataFabric® Manager (DFM) Data feature without using Protection Manager.
This TR will help the storage administrators to follow a simple and efficient approach for storage provisioning and managing
provisioned storage in SAN deployments for NetApp® storage using NetApp Provisioning Manager
This document, we will show you how to provision storage using policies through our UI and then show the same operations
performed using our API. Also, we will address how to automate provisioning of efficient multi-tenanted storage via an
Orchestration tool, which is one of the critical needs for cloud enablement.
Performance Advisor Features and Diagnosis:OnCommand Unified Manager 5.0/ 5.1 Operating in 7-Mode
This Technical Report details more into Performance Advisor Features and Diagnosis using OnCommand Unified Manager 5.0
which is applicable to OnCommand Unified Manager 5.1 operating in 7-Mode as well. Since there are no changes to Performance
Advisor functionality in OC UM 5.1 for 7-Mode
Performance Advisor provides an easy-to-use interface and the ability to set performance thresholds and alerts on the key performance metrics.
This guide documents regular and routine storage performance monitoring and troubleshooting methodologies using Performance Advisor that can
be used to track performance changes in a storage system and to take corrective actions before they affect end users.
This technical report will briefly explain the integration approaches for monitoring NetApp® storage using HP OpenView software. It will primarily address the discovery and monitoring
features provided by HP OpenView and how to integrate them with NetApp storage.Customers who have DFM server/OnCommand can enable trap forwarding and forward SNMP traps
of their storage system to HP OpenView.
