The proliferation of virtualized applications has greatly increased the complexity of capacity planning and performance management. Monitoring and forecasting CPU utilization is no longer enough. IT operations and capacity planners now must understand and optimize their applications and infrastructure from the end user to the data center.

Join Correlsense and Metron-Athene for an online seminar which will explore key performance management and capacity planning strategies for a virtualized world. We will discuss:

What you need to know about capacity management when operating in both physical and virtual environments
How performance monitoring in virtual environments relates to your capacity management goals
What is unique about capacity and performance management for virtualized applications

  • But why is this infrastructure in place? It is to host Applications that are required to support the Business.And the Transactions that flow through these applications are what allow the Business to be a Success.The founders of SharePath realized that by managing these Transactions is the most important thing because they are the lifeblood of the company.These transactions can be simple client Server transactions from Thick Clients talking to Databases <click>To more complex legacy Client Server transactions that connect multiple Back-End systems <click>To Web Transactions that now allow end-users to directly interact with your business systems and issue their own transactions.<click>And now these Web Technologies allow internal applications to be built to run the business.The point is that in this Complex, Heterogeneous technology architecture, the key thing to monitor is the Transactions of all types that flow through these systems.<click

    • 2. Agenda1. Challenges of Virtualiztion2. The Five Imperatives3. Summary/Q&A
    • 3. Housekeeping• Presentation will last 30 minutes• Submit questions via the chat window• Slides will be made available tomorrow
    • 4. CHALLENGES OF VIRTUALIZATION
    • 5. Managing Entire EnvironmentPlanning ahead to meet biz requirements and SLAs while managing: Business Constant Change, M&A Service Complex, Multi-Tiered Architectures, SOA Component Heterogeneous, Dynamic (Virtual, Cloud)
    • 6. Moving from Physical to Virtual• Virtual infrastructure is shared• Can be over-subscribed• Control in the hands of resources manager• App performance before and after migration is critical
    • 7. Maintaining SLAs• SLAs are still in place even if you virtualize• Load testing might not provide enough info• How do you monitor desktop response time?• How do you know your end to end performance?
    • 8. Traditional Tools are Insufficient Lack end-to-end performance management and capacity planning functions “CPU and “PING works, “SAN has low “Plenty of Storage & Memory are OK” Temp is OK” utilization” No hardware failures” Application Database X Server Server Fabric Storage Target Application Server SAN Performance SW Mgmt.

    • 9. THE FIVE IMPERATIVES
    • 10. Imperative 1:Changing of Mindsets• Shift to virtualization requires a change of mindset in many data centers – Technology moves work to pockets of adequate capacity – Proper amounts of capacity on a host level is no longer focus – Ensure adequate headroom for periods of peak demand – Virtualization provides savings only if capacity managed
    • 11. Imperative 2:ITIL – Service-Driven Approach• Driven by: – Shared infrastructure/resources – Centralized storage – Reliance on network resources• Strong processes to drive today’s virtualized data center – Incident Management – Problem Management – Service Level Management• Proper CM ensures fewer problems and that SLAs are met
    • 12. Imperative 3:Focus on Services and SLAs• ITIL-based approach• The service lifecycle is the central focus• Crucial that SLAs are developed that are – Specific – Measurable – Achievable – At an acceptable cost• Ensure enough (but not too much) capacity to meet SLAs
    • 13. Focus on Services and SLAs• Measuring end-to-end transaction time for production transactions is necessary to see if SLAs are met• When SLAs are not met, model scenarios to determine infrastructure changes• APM data helps find opportunities to right-size virtualized infrastructures
