ONTAP Performance Analysis (NA-PERFCDOT)

SS Course: 2001049

Course Overview

TOP

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 will learn how to interpret data and how to identify and implement changes that improve system efficiency. You will 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.
