NetApp StorageGRID is a software-defined, object based storage solution that supports industry standard object APIs like the Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3). It allows you to build a single namespace across up to 16 data centers worldwide, with customizable service levels for metadata-driven object lifecycle policies. The integrated lifecycle management policies optimize where your data lives throughout its lifecycle.

StorageGRID optimizes the durability and availability of your data across multiple geographies. Whether your data is on premises or in a public cloud, it enables hybrid cloud workflows to fit your business demands with access to Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS), Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure Blob,Amazon Glacier, Elasticsearch, and similar services.

Key Use cases

Discovery Use cases

  • It discovers the NetApp StorageGRID components.
  • Publishes relationships between resources to have a topological view and ease of maintenance.

Monitoring Use cases

  • Provides metrics related to job scheduling time and status etc..
  • Concern alerts will be generated for each metric to notify the administrator regarding the issue with the resource.


  • OpsRamp Classic Gateway 14.0.0 and above.
  • OpsRamp NextGen Gateway 14.0.0 and above.
    Note: OpsRamp recommends using the latest Gateway version for full coverage of recent bug fixes, enhancements, etc.
  • Provided IpAddress/hostname, Credentials should work for StorageGrid Management REST Apis.

Default Monitoring Configurations

NetApp storageGRID has default Global Device Management Policies, Global Templates, Global Monitors and Global Metrics in OpsRamp. You can customize these default monitoring configurations as per your business requirement by cloning respective Global Templates and Global Device Management Policies. It is recommended to clone them before installing the application to avoid noise alerts and data.

  1. Default Global Device Management Policies

    You can find the Device Management Policy for each Native Type at Setup > Resources > Device Management Policies. Search with suggested name in global scope. Each Device Management Policy follows below naming convention:

    {appName nativeType - version}

    Ex: netapp-storagegrid StorageGRID - 1 (i.e, appName = netapp-storagegrid, nativeType =StorageGRID, version = 1)

  2. Default Global Templates

    You can find the Global Templates for each Native Type at Setup > Monitoring > Templates. Search with suggested names in global scope. Each template follows below naming convention:

    {appName nativeType 'Template' - version}

    Ex: netapp-storagegrid StorageGRID Template - 1 (i.e, appName = netapp-storagegrid , nativeType = StorageGRID, version = 1)

  3. Default Global Monitors

    You can find the Global Monitors for each Native Type at Setup > Monitoring > Monitors. Search with suggested name in global scope. Each Monitors follows below naming convention:

    {monitorKey appName nativeType - version}

    Ex: Netapp StorageGrid Grid Monitor netapp-storagegrid StorageGRID 1 (i.e, monitorKey = Netapp StorageGrid Grid Monitor, appName = netapp-storagegrid , nativeType = StorageGRID 1 , version= 1)

Risks, Limitations And Assumptions

  • Application can handle Critical/Recovery failure notifications for below two cases when user enables App Failure Notifications in configuration
    • Connectivity Exception
    • Authentication Exception
  • NetApp StorageGRID will not send any duplicate/repeat failure alert notification until the already existing critical alert is recovered.
  • Using metrics for monitoring the resources and generating alerts when the threshold values are breached.
  • NetApp StorageGRID cannot control monitoring pause/resume actions based on above alerts.
  • No support of showing activity log and applied time.
  • NetApp StorageGRID supports both Classic Gateway and NextGen Gateway.
