Introduction

Information about the NetApp Data ONTAP ETL can be displayed in the two following views:

  • The Storage Capacity Views for TrueSight Capacity Optimization: This view is intended for users who have several storage ETLs configured in their environment and wish to benefit from a vendor-agnostic view to compare their different storage systems in a unique view.
  • The NetApp Capacity Views for TrueSight Capacity Optimization: This view is intended for NetApp Data ONTAP ETL users who want the NetApp terminology to be used in their view. With this view, no comparison is possible with other storage ETLs.
