This course provides you with the knowledge and skills that you need to collect and analyze system performance data from NetApp storage systems that are running ONTAP 9. You learn how to interpret data and how to identify and implement changes that improve system efficiency. You also learn how to use system commands and features to monitor and enhance storage system performance by using hands-on exercises, case studies, and technical discussion.


This course focuses on enabling you to do the following:
• Understand how a storage system running ONTAP 9 functions
• Identify the commands and tools to use to collect and monitor storage system performance
• Interpret performance data and identify hindrances to storage system performance
• Use system commands and features to enhance storage system performance and efficiency


Professionals who manage NetApp storage systems and would like a deeper understanding of Clustered Data ONTAP system performance


• ONTAP Cluster Fundamentals
• ONTAP Cluster Administration
• Hands-on experience with ONTAP software (6 to 12 months)
