Plugin-netapp-df complex.png

The NetApp plugin connects to a NetApp storage system and queries various performance values from the system. Queried values include used / free disk space, read and write operations, network IO, and CPU utilization.

The plugin uses libnetapp, a library provided by NetApp, Inc., to connect to one or more filers and receive information. This way information is available that isn't provided via SNMP, for example snapshot statistics. Due to a wide variety of available statistics, it is possible to control very fine-grained which information to collect using the configuration. Each group of statistics can be collected in a separate interval, so that free / used disk space can be collected less often than, say, CPU utilization.

The plugin was written in 2009 by Sven Trenkel for the noris network AG and licensed under the MIT license. (more …)

Using the “tabs” in the top right corner you can switch between the homepage and the wiki. When in the wiki, the menu on the right holds a link to the “Main Page” (this page) and other wiki controls.


You can edit pages freely and without creating a user account and logging in.

If you do not log in, your IP-address will be saved and displayed in the change history. If your change adds an external link, you will be asked to solve a Captcha. Automated attacks on our wiki made this unfortunate step necessary, sorry.

If you have questions about anything you read in this wiki, please don't hesitate to ask this question in the discussion page. You can find a link at the top, right next to “page”.
