NetApp StorageGRID is a software-defined, object based storage solution that supports industry standard object APIs like the Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3). It allows you to build a single namespace across up to 16 data centers worldwide, with customizable service levels for metadata-driven object lifecycle policies. The integrated lifecycle management policies optimize where your data lives throughout its lifecycle.

StorageGRID optimizes the durability and availability of your data across multiple geographies. Whether your data is on premises or in a public cloud, it enables hybrid cloud workflows to fit your business demands with access to Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS), Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure Blob,Amazon Glacier, Elasticsearch, and similar services.

Key Use cases

Discovery Use cases

  • It discovers the NetApp StorageGRID components. The following are the resource structure.

    • Grid
              - StorageGRID Site
                    - StorageGRID Node
                            - StorageGRID Node Disk
                            - StorageGRID Node Volume
              - StorageGRID Tenant
                    - StorageGRID Bucket
  • Publishes relationships between resources to have a topological view and ease of maintenance.

Monitoring Use cases

  • Provides metrics related to job scheduling time and status etc..
  • Concern alerts will be generated for each metric to notify the administrator regarding the issue with the resource.


  • OpsRamp Classic Gateway 13.0.0 and above.
  • Provided IpAddress/hostname, Credentials should work for StorageGrid Management REST Apis.

Default Monitoring Configurations

NetApp storageGRID has default Global Device Management Policies, Global Templates, Global Monitors and Global metrics in OpsRamp. You can customize these default monitoring configurations as per your business use cases by cloning respective global templates and global Device Management Policies. OpsRamp recommends performing the below activity before installing the application to avoid noise alerts and data.

  1. Default Global Device Management Policies

    OpsRamp has a Global Device Management Policy for each Native Type of NetApp StorageGRID. You can find those Device Management Policies at Setup -> Resources -> Device Management Policies, search with suggested names in global scope. Each Device Management Policy follows below naming convention:

    {appName nativeType - version}

    Ex: netapp-storagegrid StorageGRID - 1 (i.e, appName = netapp-storagegrid, nativeType =StorageGRID, version = 1)

  2. Default Global Templates

    OpsRamp has a Global template for each Native Type of NetApp StorageGRID. You can find those templates at Setup -> Monitoring -> Templates, search with suggested names in global scope. Each template follows below naming convention:

    {appName nativeType 'Template' - version}

    Ex: netapp-storagegrid StorageGRID Template - 1 (i.e, appName = netapp-storagegrid , nativeType = StorageGRID, version = 1)

  3. Default Global Monitors

    OpsRamp has a Global Monitors for each Native Type which has monitoring support. You can find those monitors at Setup -> Monitoring -> Monitors, search with suggested names in global scope. Each Monitors follows below naming convention:

    {monitorKey appName nativeType - version}

    Ex: Netapp StorageGrid Grid Monitor netapp-storagegrid StorageGRID 1 (i.e, monitorKey = Netapp StorageGrid Grid Monitor, appName = netapp-storagegrid , nativeType = StorageGRID 1 , version= 1

  1. Select the below mentioned CUSTOM ATTRIBUTE:
Object NameDescription
Custom AttributeSelect the custom attribute from the drop down list box
ValueSelect the value from the drop down list box.

Note: The custom attribute that you add here will be assigned to all the resources that are created by the integration. You can add a maximum of five custom attributes (key and value pair).

  1. In the RESOURCE TYPE section, select:
    • ALL: All the existing and future resources will be discovered.
    • SELECT: You can select one or multiple resources to be discovered.
  2. In the DISCOVERY SCHEDULE section, select Recurrence Pattern to add one of the following patterns:
    • Minutes
    • Hourly
    • Daily
    • Weekly
    • Monthly
  3. Click ADD.
Netapp ONTAP
  1. Now the configuration is saved and displayed on the configurations page after you save it.

    Note: From the same page, you may Edit and Remove the created configuration.

  2. Click NEXT.

  3. In the Installation page, select an existing registered gateway profile, and click FINISH.

Netapp ONTAP

The application is now installed and displayed on the Installed Integration page. Use the search field to find the installed application.

## Risks, Limitations & Assumptions - Application can handle Critical/Recovery failure notifications for below two cases when user enables **App Failure Notifications** in configuration - Connectivity Exception - Authentication Exception - Application will not send any duplicate/repeat failure alert notification until the already existing critical alert is recovered. - Using metrics for monitoring the resources and generating alerts when the threshold values are breached. - Application cannot control monitoring pause/resume actions based on above alerts. - This application supports only Classic Gateway and NextGen Gateway. Not supported with Cluster Gateway. - No support of showing activity log and applied time.
