In this course, you will be introduced to the methodology for analyzing performance of Symmetrix arrays. You will learn to analyze Symmetrix performance using ControlCenter Performance Manager and Symmetrix Performance Analyzer tools. Metrics that are relevant for analysis of each of the components in a Symmetrix array are presented. You will learn to identify bottlenecks for performance and provide recommendations to remedy the problem. Hands-on lab exercises using performance archives reinforce the concepts and methodology presented in the lecture.
