Welcome to the Episode 248, part of the continuing series called “Behind the Scenes of the NetApp Tech ONTAP Podcast.”
Recently, I tried to set up NetApp Harvest from scratch, using Grafana and Graphite. By the end of the day, with no working instance, I realized that it just wasn’t going to happen. Then, I remembered NABox and within minutes, I was able to start monitoring NetApp ONTAP performance.
This week, we invite NetApp Technical Account Manager Yann Bizeul (@ybontap), NetApp Performance TME Dan Isaacs (@danisaacs) and Client Solutions Architect at AHEAD, Dan Burkland (@dburkland) to discuss NABox – a self-contained, pre-configured VM instance of NetApp Harvest that lets you start monitoring NetApp ONTAP performance in a matter of minutes!
NABox can be found at: https://nabox.org/
