How the Management Pack Works
The Management Pack for NetApp HCI & SolidFire accesses the SolidFire Element OS API to import NetApp HCI/SolidFire storage-related resources, relationships, metrics, and alerts into vRealize Operations, enabling comprehensive monitoring and troubleshooting, while providing visibility into the virtual layer within vROps.
