Additional information

For the NetApp ONTAP Insight Pack to operate correctly within IBM Operations Analytics – Log Analysis two components are required to be installed:

  • The NetApp ONTAP Insight Pack
  • The NetApp ONTAP Forwarder

The NetApp ONTAP filer generates Log messages. These can be retrieved with the help of SSH and the ONTAP readfd command. The NetApp ONTAP forwarder is the component that will collect the necessary log information from the NetApp ONTAP appliance. It uses SSH to pull the log content, parse it then forward the data to Log Analysis using the routines provided in the NetApp ONTAP Insight Pack.
