You can use functionality such as event messages, health monitors, and AutoSupport to monitor the storage system.
Managing event messages
The Event Management System (EMS) collects and displays information about events that occur on your storage system. You can display the status of events. You can also display the event log and its contents.
AutoSupport is a mechanism that proactively monitors the health of your system and automatically sends email messages to NetApp technical support, your internal support organization, and a support partner.
Monitoring the health of your system
Health monitors proactively monitor certain critical conditions and raise alerts if they detect a fault or risk. If there are active alerts, the system health status reports a degraded status for the cluster. The alerts include the information that you need to respond to degraded system health.
