Managed Methods Partners with Gigamon

  1. 1. Managed Methods Partners with Gigamon  Partnership will expand options for scaling JaxView in large SOA deployments Managed Methods, the supplier of JaxView tools for visibility into Web Services operations, announced a strategic partnership with Gigamon Systems, the leading supplier of next-generation data access switches, to expand options for scaling JaxView in large SOA deployments. Network Architects and IT operations managers working with web services in production need visibility into the operation and performance of XML-based service exchanges. At the same time, many of these IT organizations are constrained to do more with smaller budgets, shorter time horizons, and less impact on systems. Most solutions for SOA monitoring on the market provide a rich set of management features but require a significant investment of resources to implement. These management tools also tend to add traffic overhead into networked systems. Managed Methods developed an agentless monitoring capability for Web services to address the demand for a management solution that can easily plug into existing infrastructure without the need to modify server configurations or system architecture. Combining Gigamon's out-of-band aggregation ability with JaxView passive SOA monitoring solution totally eliminates extra impact on the already high-overhead XML text based messaging traffic in SOA environments by using out-of-band data. Two important considerations in large and complex IT environments are scalability and manageability. JaxView provides a centralized, web-based portal to efficiently monitor Web services and manage events and reports. The GigaVUE®-MP product from Gigamon, enables a resource efficient way to scale JaxView Web services visibility in large environments while sharing that visibility with other deployed monitoring tools. The GigaVUE®-MP has the ability to aggregate network traffic and filters the data stream so that only the packets that are needed are forwarded to JaxView. In very high traffic situations, GigaVUE®-MP can also load balance network data streams to two or more JaxView servers. The JaxView cluster then aggregates the Web services messaging information, providing the following: • Service response performance metrics • Operation throughput metrics • Fault message management • SLA management metrics • Client usage metering • Metric baselining and trend analysis "We are pleased to be able to enhance JaxView's scalability with our GigaVUE®-MP product." said Tom Gallatin, VP of Marketing and Sales at Gigamon Systems. "Gigamon's success is built on enabling multiple system management and monitoring tools to do their jobs more efficiently and unobtrusively in complex IT network environments ".
