  • Expert advice provides detailed description of problem and recommended recovery actions provided for situations/conditions which reduces time to problem resolution and decreases reliance on expensive SME resources
  • Reduces total cost of ownership Leverage current investment in OMEGAMON monitors Easy to install, use, maintain Receive value immediately Makes it easier to get the information YOU need Familiar Windows-like interface Expert advice Take action Personalization via workspaces, local thresholds, and views Helps manage the pace of change Quicker access to relevant information to isolate and resolve faults Historical information Can you talk to Out of The Box (OOTB) capability as well here? Visualization, Perf Data etc. Highlights are OOTB,Time to Value, and Visualization.
  • Main points: Cover some of the key distributed systems metrics collected by OMEGAMON XE for Distributed Systems. Talking points: OMEGAMON XE for Distributed Systems can be installed and operational in a very short period. Most of our clients can install and start to monitor a particular distributed system in less than a day, and many in under a half day. Because of the large number of pre-defined workspaces and situations, you can monitor and manage applications, platforms, and resources across your distributed environment as soon as you install OMEGAMON XE for Distributed Systems. Each agent has its own set of metrics that it collects, allowing you monitor the health of the operating systems in your distributed environment. As you work with OMEGAMON XE for Distributed Systems and learn what information is important in your distributed systems environment, you can select which metrics should be collected and reported by the agents. For example, on one UNIX system, you are concerned about CPU usage but not disk utilization. Then you can tell OMEGAMON XE to gather information on CPU but not disk utilization. On another UNIX system, you decide that you want to collect information on both CPU and disk usage. This allows you to balance any impact that monitoring may have on your distributed systems and network with the need to understand what is happening in your distributed systems environment as it relates to your business-critical applications. Using the OMEGAMON XE for Distributed Systems workspace. you can see at a glance the overall health of basic components of your distributed system. In these pre-defined or customized workspaces, you can monitor key operating system areas such as CPU, memory, and disk usage. You can also identify, or be notified via alerts of, problems and bottlenecks across your heterogeneous distributed systems environment. Using historical data, you can establish performance baselines for your systems and see trends as they occur. This allows you to take corrective action to avoid outages for your business-critical applications. Transition: Let’s look quickly at some examples of the type of information OMEGAMON XE for Distributed Systems provides.
  • Breadth of monitoring capability with ITM / OM / ITCAM out-of-the-box from Operating Systems through Middleware to Applications &amp; SOA. The best practice library available to customers and business partners also provides additional monitors based on the Universal Agent.
  • Expand time frame for evaluation with simple view control enabling real-time, recent past and longer past to be accessed in the same way.
  • One of the key features of the CandleNet Portal is the workspace. A workspace is made up of multiple in predefined or customized views. This allows an administrator to see at a glance they health of their managed resources. The data in views can be displayed in many different formats – bar chart, line chart, gauge, or table. It is also possible to load a browser in a view or a green screen.
  • Expert advice provides detailed description of problem and recommended recovery actions provided for situations/conditions which reduces time to problem resolution and decreases reliance on expensive SME resources

    1. 1. TotalStorage and Automation ITM v6 and TSM – “Critical Enough to Protect – Critical Enough to Monitor” System and Storage State Management
    2. 2. This information is to briefly explain overall benefits of our Tivoli Monitoring Products and to increase the conversations with our customers around system state management. Tivoli Storage Manager is used to protect critical applications and Servers in customer environments. System state management is not a nice to have. It is a must have for organizations today. Understanding the state and performance of a specific CI is critical for some organizations. ITM provides the system performance and state management that. ITM can monitor CPU, Memory, IP Network performance to provide a better overall Server State. With TSM v6 we leverage the ITM solution to provide monitoring and reporting of the critical factors backup administrators need to understand. With ITM added to the Storage solution we can not only monitor and report on backup data that is handled by TSM but also provide administrators the insight to better understand the characteristics of the machines that TSM is protecting. With ITM, a TSM administrators has the information for problem determination and performance tracking.
