It is for long-term tracking of performance information. I am also looking at the interaction between NetApp systems and non-NetApp systems. It's only really being used for the storage, and to a limited extent, our VMware. It is maybe being used once or twice a day at most. We're not using it actively. We are just using it in kind of a testing phase.
We're using it for monitoring and managing all of the NetApp storage in our environment, both in the cloud and on-prem. We are expanding it to use it with our virtualized environment and with our in-house storage environments.
Among the most valuable features are the queries and reporting that allow us to look at the utilization of resources, at how well the storage is performing, and to report on which resources are being used by which business units. We can track usage across the entire environment, across applications, business units, cost centers, etc.
