Change Auditor for NetApp 7.0.2 - User Guide

Create custom NetApp searches

The following scenarios explain how to use the What tab to create custom NetApp searches.

Selecting the Private folder will create a search that only you can run and view, whereas selecting the Shared folder will create a search which can be run and viewed by all users.
3
Click New at the top of the Searches page.
5
Open the What tab, expand Add and select Subsystem | File System.
6
By default, All Actions is selected meaning that all of the actions associated with the file system path will be included in the search.
8
Click OK to save your selection and close the dialog.

This Object - select to search only the selected object.
This Object and Child Objects Only - select to search the selected object and its direct child objects.
This Object and All Child Objects - select to include the selected object and all subordinate objects (in all levels)
7
In the Path field, enter or use the browse button to select the NetApp filer path to be searched.
NOTE: If the scope of your search is This Object, you can use the * wildcard character to specify the NetApp filer path. That is, use an asterisk (*) to substitute zero or more characters.

When using the This Object option, be sure to select the appropriate Type option to define the type of path to be searched: Files or Folders.

By default, All Actions is selected meaning that all of the actions associated with the path will be included in the search.
When the scope includes child objects, All Types are selected by default meaning that all types of paths will be searched. If you selected the This Object scope option, Files is selected by default, which can be changed to Folders. Only one type can be selected.

Performance Considerations

This section contains strategies to help minimize performance issues.

Change Auditor agent performance

Performance is directly linked to the CPU speed and network latency of the server hosting the agent collecting the NetApp events.

To improve agent performance, you can:

See the Release Notes for required rights and permission.

You may improve performance by assigning a NetApp auditing template to more than one agent. When multiple agents are assigned to the same template, events are load-balanced between these agents. However, the downside is that the ‘where’ field for NetApp events may contain any one of the agents being monitored by this single auditing template. In addition, if NetApp event logging is enabled in Change Auditor, events will be written on multiple agent servers.

Configuring audit scope

Audit only volumes, extensions and operations that are vital for your environment. Use the NetApp auditing template to specify the auditing scope for a NetApp filer. For example, using the NetApp Auditing template you can:

Set the Audit Path to File, Folder or Volume and enter the file, folder or volume to be audited.
To specify a file, enter: <ShareName>\<Path>\<FileName>
To specify a folder, enter: <ShareName>\<FolderName>

See File and Folder Inclusion and Exclusion Examples for more information and examples.
