OnCommand Insight: Intelligent Operation (OCIIO)


Course Content

In this course, you become familiar with some of the most important features of NetApp OnCommand Insight, relevant to the day-to-day management, monitoring, and troubleshooting of data infrastructures. The course concentrates on the Insight features that aid in daily system administration tasks. If you are interested in Insight features that relate to business reporting or IT department integration you should look for course offerings specific to those topics. The course takes you through a typical storage administration issue and the Insight features that you can use to resolve that issue. By learning how to resolve specific administration problems, you should gain a basic understanding of how to extend the Insight feature set to other issues. You will also learn how to add new assets to an Insight monitored infrastructure.

Who should attend

This course is intended as an introductory course for end users, as well as internal NetApp sales and partner resellers.
