OnCommand Insight: Intelligent Operation (OCIIO)


Course Content

OnCommand Insight: Intelligent Operation is a 2 day course that allows you to become familiar with some of the most important features of OnCommand Insight relevant to the day-to-day management, monitoring and trouble-shooting of data infrastructures. You will learn the features of OnCommand Insight that aid in daily administrative tasks, specifically related to common storage administration issues and the features useful to resolving those issues. You will also learn how to add new assets to an OnCommand Insight monitored infrastructure. This course will support OCI version 7.2 and targets those who are responsible for using OCI for Diagnostic Analytics around ensuring availability, troubleshooting the environment, resolving issues, meeting service levels and removing risk.

Who should attend

This course is intended as an introductory course for:

  • Customers
