Performance Management

Management of computer systems, especially in today’s distributed, heterogeneous environments is a challenging task. Management of large server estates challenges even the most adept IT organization
Key Challenges
How to manage ballooning server estates (physical and virtual) without sacrificing the detail and timeliness required to make effective decisions
How to intelligently reduce volumes of data to only that which requires management attention
How to quickly visualize infrastructure status and risk from the enterprise-wide, CIO level to that of the system manager
Key Solution Requirements
A comprehensive solution must conform to a methodology which makes performance management of large server estates a tractable task. It must:
Use a low-footprint, easily-installed agent on each monitored server to capture superior, detailed data
Incorporate a robust, automated mechanism to consolidate that data in a common database
Automate processes which analyze that data and provide real-time and near-time notification to trigger performance management team attention
Project future performance risk and notify performance management personnel at the appropriate time
Integrate tools to permit the performance analyst to quickly perform in-depth investigation of performance problems
