Monitoring NetAPP Devices with PRTG Network Monitor

Paessler has developed specific sensors included in PRTG Network Monitor to monitor NetApp devices. One sensor within PRTG is one aspect that you monitor on a device, for example a specific URL, the traffic of a network connection, a port of a switch or the CPU load on a machine. PRTG Network Monitor includes more than 200 sensor types for all common network services.
Paessler has developed specific sensors for NetApp devices included in PRTG Network Monitor:
- NetApp cDOT Aggregate (SOAP) Sensor
- NetApp cDOT I/O (SOAP) Sensor
- NetApp cDOT Physical Disk (SOAP) Sensor
- NetApp cDOT System Health (SOAP) Sensor
- SNMP NetApp Disk Free Sensor
- SNMP NetApp Enclosure Sensor
- SNMP NetApp I/O Sensor
- SNMP NetApp License Sensor
- SNMP NetApp Logical Unit Sensor
- SNMP NetApp Network Interface Sensor
- SNMP NetApp System Health Sensor
For example, the NetApp cDOT I/O (SOAP) sensor monitors input and output operations of a NetApp clustered Data ONTAP (cDOT) storage system accessing the cDOT web Application Programming Interface (API) via Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP). It can show the following:
- Number of Common Internet File System (CIFS) operations per second
- Disk read and write speed
- Number of FCP operations per second
- FCP read and write speed
- HDD read and write speed
- HTTP operations per second
- Number of internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) operations per second
- iSCSI read and write speed
- Number of iSCSI partner operations per second
- iSCSI partner read and write speed
- Network read and write speed
- Number of Network File System (NFS) operations per second
- SSD read and write speed
- Tape read and write speed
