All monitored systems are displayed with current open alarms and log entries. All pre-defined graphics may be selected via this page too.
This module enables you to define threshold values for each and every measured value.
Based on a sophisticated set of rules, alerts are only sent out when it makes sense to do so.
Individuals or groups of individuals are able to receive separate authorisation for each monitored system as well as for every single function of the IT-PS Performance Monitor. This means for example that internal teams, departments or individual customers are only able to see graphics relevant to them.
SAN Network View
This module automatically generates a graphic display of the SAN environment. This overview shows you immediately whether the desired redundancy has been achieved in SAN. Any deviations are easily tracealbe by comparing the current state with reports from the past.
Automatically Generated Reports
This module is able to generate a daily, weekly or monthly report for every pre-defined or self-compiled graphic. The report is automatically generated at night and the graphics are stored in the file system.
Predictive: Automated Dedection of Performance Anomalities
For the first time in the history of the IT-PS Performance Monitor the classic performance monitoring is combined with Data Science to provide an amazing tool: it is now possible to predict performance anomalities and to take the necessary steps to ensure the continued smooth running of the system. Predictive monitoring as it should be.
In many cases these days it is not enough to monitor just the high thresholds alone, as production problems are also indicated in values that are too low. The following diagram shows the comparison of the CPU utilisation over two days.
The red graph (CPU usage) shows a significantly lower value between 16.00 and 0.00 than in the same interval the second day. The reason is a not running application. By means of conventional monitoring this lower deviation would remain undedected.
The new modul “Predictive” is continously monitoring the reported performance data. As soon as data deviates, the Performance Monitor generates an event. In case of more of these events being generated, the system raises alarm.
Automated Documentation of Power Server, SAN, Virtualisation and Storage Environment
We are aware how challenging it is to keep the infrastructure documentation up to date in a dynamic environment. This prompted us to develope a new and highly efficient modul for the IT-PS Performance Monitor.
The “Automated Documentation” generates an Excel document with all the essential configuration information for Power Server, VIO Server, SAN Switch and External Storage in regular intervals.
On one hand this documents the history of the configuration and on the other hand shows in case of error what has changed. In short: you have all the information at hand you need in order to rebuild your entire environment in case of disaster.
