You can manage the Data ONTAP clusters you want to use in Performance Manager, including adding, editing, and removing clusters.
You can add a cluster to Performance Manager to monitor the cluster and obtain information about its status and configuration.
How the discovery process works
After you have added the cluster to Performance Manager, the server discovers the cluster objects and adds them to its database. Understanding how the discovery process works helps you to manage your organization's clusters and their objects.
Viewing the clusters list
You can use the Manage Data Sources page to view your inventory of clusters. You can view details about the clusters, such as their name or IP address and communication status.
You can modify the settings of an existing cluster, such as the host name or IP address, user name, password, protocol, and port, by using Performance Manager. For example, you can change the protocol from HTTP to HTTPS using the Edit Cluster dialog box.
You can remove a cluster from Performance Manager by using the Manage Data Sources page. For example, you can remove a cluster when you want to decommission a storage system.
Searching for storage objects
You can use the search bar to find your storage objects. Search results are sorted by storage object type, and you can filter them using the drop-down menu. A valid search must contain at least three characters.
