About the Content Pack for NetApp Data ONTAP Dashboards and Reports

The Content Pack for NetApp Data ONTAP Dashboards and Reports provides real-time and historical visibility into the performance and configuration of your NetApp storage infrastructure. Use this Content Pack with the Splunk Add-on for NetApp Data ONTAP to collect NetApp API data from one or more NetApp FAS controllers.

The content pack uses the capabilities of a scheduler and the domain-specific data collection nodes (DCNs) to process the data from your storage layer and map it to the app. The Splunk Add-on for NetApp Data ONTAP uses splunkd to index and process your data and the Splunk Web application server to enable you to search and navigate your data using the dashboards provided by Content Pack for NetApp Data ONTAP Dashboards and Reports.

The Content Pack contains the following object types:

Object type Description
Dashboards and the required Splunk knowledge objects Dashboards and the knowledge objects that are used to populate the dashboards present in the content pack. The Content Pack for NetApp Dashboards and Reports contains dashboards for the Proactive Monitoring feature. See the list of dashboards present in the content pack.

The ITSI Content Pack for NetApp Data ONTAP Dashboards and Reports and the Splunk App for NetApp Data ONTAP/Splunk Supporting Add-on for NetApp contain identical knowledge objects that cause a conflict when installed on the same search head. To avoid conflict, do not install both apps on the same search head.
