Course Description

The Performance Analysis on Data ONTAP® 7.3 course provides students with the knowledge and skills to perform data collection and analysis on NetApp® storage systems. Students will learn how to interpret data and apply performance changes based on their analysis. They will use analysis data for tuning and monitoring performance.


Administrators and support personnel who administrate NetApp storage systems running Data ONTAP 7.3 and who wish to have a deeper understanding of the system performance.


The following pre-requisites or equivalent knowledge are required before taking this course:

  • Introduction to Network Appliance Products (WBT) Self Paced 
  • Data ONTAP® Fundamentals
  • High Availability (WBT) Self Paced


At the end of this course you should be able to:

  • Recognize performance terminology and basic methodology 
  • Use known methods and tools to collect performance data
  • Describe the Data ONTAP architecture and the benefits of features such as NVRAM and the WAFL® (Write Anywhere File Layout) file system
  • Use knowledge about how data flows through the network and protocol layers of Data ONTAP to monitor and analyze storage system performance
  • Examine command output from case studies to identify performance bottlenecks
  • Perform basic software configuration and recognize diagnostic operations for the Performance Acceleration Module and FlexScale
