The Project – Part 1

 “Data Mining and Consolidation”   This tool will increase efficiency of human log file review to gather information from the system.

Will use NetApp’s Data ONTAP simulator running on Linux.

 Input: Data from various log files.

 List of log files to be processed: Apache, bcomd, command-history, debug, fpolicy, hashd, jm-restart, memsnap, messages, mgwd, ndmpd, notifyd, secd, servprocd, sktlogd, spdebug, spmd, vifmgr and vldb.

 Processing: Pattern matching, learning algorithm.

 Output: Interactive, hierarchical view of consolidated information. NetApp Confidential - Internal Use Only


Requirements – Part 1

     The process to gather data shall run on-demand triggered by an option in the tool.

The interface shall run in a browser. The tool must have the capability to save point-in-time results.

The tool must create a DATA ONTAP log dictionary.

The tool must h ave section for top results like “Top Keywords”, “Top Log Messages”, etc.  The tool must be able to correlate messages across different log files based on timestamp.

 The tool must present results dynamically based on the time window selected.

 The project must include automated testing and analysis of code coverage.

Project Deliverables – Part 1

 Plan – Functional specification – Design specification – Test plan including automated tests – Plan for measuring code coverage for automated tests  Weekly Updates – Written – Working demo after first couple of weeks – Q & A session  Deliverables – Project kick-off presentation (2 to 4 weeks into the project) – Pre-final presentation (week or 2 before final presentation… to be used to coach final presentation.) – Final presentation and proposal (finals weeks) – Demo NetApp Confidential - Internal Use Only


The Project – Part 2

 “Bring Down the Box”  The goal of this part of the project is to write a script that will render NetApp’s Data ONTAP simulator unusable.  Upon successful completion your script will be presented to our QA department for reproduction in the QA environment and filing of defects to be fixed in our code.

 Input: None  Output: Script that, when run, will affect operation of our simulator such that it cannot be used until the box is restarted.

 Mentor / mentee 1 hour meeting weekly. At least 1 person from the NetApp mentor team (typicaly project manager) will try to be on campus and will conference the rest of the team in. Webex to be used as well.

 Email and Instant messenger communication can be used between scheduled meetings.

 Project manager from NetApp also available by telephone.

 Mentors on campus for final presentation.
