NetApp monitoring

Why it's essential to monitor your NetApp storage

NetApp has now become one of the fastest thriving SAN storage vendors and their storage appliances are used by enterprises to share vast loads of data across physical and hybrid cloud environments.

Owing to the rampant adoption of NetApp storage appliances by businesses, and tonnes of vital resources stored on them, their malfunction could profoundly cripple operations. Also, their inconsistent monitoring could mislead resource allocation. This is precisely where a dedicated NetApp monitoring software could help do the trick.

Avoid bottlenecks with a NetApp monitor

Due to the number of business-critical functions dependent on NetApp storage appliances, outages and downtime could severely cripple operations; to this end, an effective NetApp monitoring tool can do wonders.

Here are some bottlenecks you may encounter if you fail to monitor your NetApp storage appliances:

  • Outages caused as a result of overshooting data capacity
  • Improper allocation of resources due to miscalculated storage forecasting.
  • Loss of business-critical data stored in the devices owing to outages
  • Setbacks in I/O processes in storage appliances impeding system functionality
