I have this very same question. It appears there are ways to pull the data from the EF560. I've spun up a gateway to query with REST but the information is raw and no real doc's as to how to get the data back into usable form. My focus is on performance with regard to latency and usage. I'll probably push it into Elasticsearch, but I figure there is an easier way to do all this.
I know you can pull it via CIM, maybe even SNMP. Is anyone pulling the performance information and using it for trending etc? I had hoped Netapp would add a connector to Performance manager for ease of use, but it appears I'll be re-creating the wheel if I want to get this information.
As one of the replies indicate, you can use SCOM. I may spin up a temporary solution in order to see how the data is represented, but really don't want to support a SCOM build.
Thanks folks for your ear.
