Introduction to Active IQ Unified Manager

Contributors netapp-manini

Active IQ Unified Manager (formerly OnCommand Unified Manager) enables you to monitor and manage the health and performance of your ONTAP storage systems from a single interface.

Unified Manager provides the following features:

  • Discovery, monitoring, and notifications for systems that are installed with ONTAP software.

  • Dashboard to show capacity, security, and performance health of the environment.

  • Enhanced alerts, events, and threshold infrastructure.

  • Displays detailed graphs that plot workload activity over time; including IOPS (operations), MBps (throughput), latency (response time), utilization, performance capacity, and cache ratio.

  • Identifies workloads that are overusing cluster components and the workloads whose performance is impacted by the increased activity.

  • Provides suggested corrective actions that can be performed to address certain incidents and events, and a "Fix It" button for some events so you can resolve the issue immediately.

  • Integrates with OnCommand Workflow Automation to execute automated protection workflows.

  • Ability to create new workloads, such as a LUN or file share, directly from Unified Manager and assign a Performance Service Level to define the performance and storage objectives for the users accessing the application using that workload.
