Course Description Schedule Course Outline
 

Course Overview

Fast Lane has added 4 supplemental modules to enhance your learning experience. Learn more about:

  • Command line monitoring
  • OnCommand System Manager using ONTAP 9.x
  • Unified Manager 7.1
  • Performance Manager 7.1

Course Content

For those students who are looking for more in-depth knowledge on managing performance on Clustered Data ONTAP after completing DCADM should consider PERFCDOT. This course will teach students to use available tools such as system commands and NetApp OnCommand to collect and monitor performance data. Students will learn to use this data to identify and implement system changes that improve the efficiency of the system. Hands-on labs, case-studies, and technical discussions will take place throughout this 2-day course.
