PAWZ Server w/ PAWZCloud

Managing the performance of computer systems, especially in today’s distributed, heterogeneous and virtual environments, is a challenging task. Performance Analysis Web Zone (PAWZ) from PerfCap Corporation meets the challenges that IS Managers face by providing secure, web-based performance management of the IT infrastructure. PAWZ allows users to view and analyze performance data, whether historical or real-time, via an Internet/intranet connection using a web browser. Simply by logging into PAWZ you can view enterprise-level summary reports down to very detailed system level performance information, build what-if capacity planning scenarios and more.
The PAWZ (Performance Analysis Web Zone) Server is the key component of PerfCap’s Performance analysis and Capacity Planning products. It runs on Windows 2003/2008 using Microsoft SQL Server for data storage and Internet Information Server (IIS) for web publishing.
PAWZ Server requests and processes performance and capacity data from the PAWZ clients. It then web-publishes a large variety of performance, exception and capacity reports and graphs. When performance exceptions are detected, the PAWZ Server sends alerts via e-mail.
PAWZ Server runs daily capacity planning models for each monitored system to generate saturation analysis graphs, device utilization projections that detect bottlenecks, the remaining headroom and headroom trends.
PAWZ Server has PAWZCloud; web-based capacity and performance management insight for large virtual infrastructures. Resource usage, capacity status, and future projections may be viewed from the enterprise, data center, cluster, host and guest levels. Key resource dimensions of virtual infrastructure monitored, analyzed, reported and projected include CPU, Memory, Network, SAN Storage Space, Bandwidth, and Latency.
PAWZ Server PAWZCloud shows provisioning status of services associated with virtual machines at a glance. Problems detected with guest provisioning automatically generating analysis and advice reports.
Since PAWZ Server with PAWZCloud is web based, there is no limit to the number of concurrent users.
Features in PAWZ Server:

Agent-less Collector – Runs on any Windows server and interacts with VMware VI to capture host performance data
PAWZCloud – PAWZ Server receives data from PAWZCloud Remote Collectors, archives it into a SQL Server database, and generates web viewable interactive reports
PAWZCloud Analyzer – Runs on the PAWZCloud Server to analyze collected data, detect current issues, project future resource usage, and provide analysis and advice interactively and via e-mail
