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.

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.
