Transcript

  • 1. Top 5 Server Performance Management problems & How to resolve them using OpManager
  • 2. Agenda – About ManageEngine – Survey inferences – Top 5 server performance problems – Problem, outcome, and what to monitor – How to resolve them using OpManager – Discussion
  • 3. About ManageEngine 3 ManageEngine software is used by over 40,000 customers including 3 out of every 5 fortune 500 companies
  • 4. About ManageEngine 4 ManageEngine is the only IT Management vendor focused on bringing a complete IT Management portfolio to the mid-sized enterprise
  • 5. Survey Thanks 5 We thank our customers for sharing their views on server performance problems Over 100 survey participants
  • 6. Survey – Categories and Concerns 6 1. Inventory and Mapping – Physical location of the server – List of servers and their hardware & software configuration details – Connected switch ports information 2. Server Resources crunch – Hard Disk – CPU and Memory crunch – Network I/O 3. Hardware health & environment issues – Server hardware failures – Temperature and humidity in a Data-Center. – UPS health
  • 7. Survey – Categories and Concerns 7 4. Service Availability and SLA Management – Unstable application services or poor performance of application components – DNS/ DHCP conflicts – Multi-tier service level visibility 5. Capacity Management – Optimum utilization of server to reduce the floor space and power consumption (Green IT) – Virtualization management hiccups – Server utilization trending 6. Security Threats – Vulnerability assessment – Service Packs/ Patch deployment – Log Analysis – Compliance reporting
  • 8. Top server performance problems 8 1.Hard Disk usage problems 2.CPU/ Memory related issues 3.Server temperature and power hiccups 4.Vulnerability assessment and patching 5.Network Interface bottlenecks 6.Virtualization management troubles
  • 9. Server Performance Problems 9 Hard Disk Drive #1 Data intensive applications or services, viz., File servers, Database servers. Problems – Sudden increase in logs like transaction logs, application logs, error logs – Unsolicited operations – Disk running out of space than intended – Hard Disk aging factor – Increasing bad sectors and data loss
  • 10. Server Performance Problems 10 Hard Disk Drive #1 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 What to do! – Configure log roll-overs – Avoid unwarranted operations – Schedule it for non- business hours – Routine disk defragmentation – RAID
  • 11. Server Performance Problems 11 Hard Disk Drive #1 What to look for: Disk Space metrics – Available Free Space/ Used Disk space – Rate of increase in disk space utilization Disk performance metrics – Disk Speed per second (Reads, Writes & Transfer) – Disk Bytes (Read, Write & Transfer) – Disk Queue Length (Average, Current, Read & Write) System Event Logs/ Syslogs or SNMP Traps
  • 12. Server Performance Problems CPU & Memory #2 Problems – Troubled Application/ Service – Unnecessary processes running – Sudden spike in CPU/ Memory usage, leading to server crash – High service response time or unavailability – Defective hardware components – Unstable server
  • 13. Server Performance Problems CPU & Memory #2 What to do! – Tweak CPU priority/ affinity – Increase Application’s memory cache – Fine-tune virtual memory – Add more memory – Clustering/ Load balancing – Server Virtualization
  • 14. Server Performance Problems CPU & Memory #2 What to look for: CPU performance metrics – Current CPU utilization – % Processor time & Processor Queue – Deferred Procedure Calls Queues & Interrupts/ Sec. Memory performance metrics – Current Memory Utilization or Free Memory – Page/ Sec. (Faults, Writes, Input, Output) – Cache Bytes, Peak and Faults/ Sec – Number of processes and their CPU/ Memory usage
  • 15. Server Performance Problems Server Temperature & Power#3 Could happen to any server Problems – Improper/ Failure of cooling system – Diminishing FAN speed or FAN breakdown – Power outages due to faulty PDU/ SMPS – Poor server performance followed by application sluggishness – Frequent server crash – UPS Low battery/ Poor generator health
  • 16. Server Performance Problems Server Temperature & Power#3 Use case
  • 17. Server Performance Problems #3 Server Temperature & Power What to look for: Vendor specific metrics – FAN Speed – Server Temperature – System Event Logs/ BIOS System logs/ SNMP Traps – Input/ Output voltage – Monitoring cooling units and temperature sensors for current room temperature – Automated UPS and Generators health monitoring
  • 18. Server Performance Problems Network Interface bottlenecks#4 Problems – Impulsive bandwidth – Could be a virus attack or spamming – Excessive Error/ Discard rate – Packet collision – Intermittent network connectivity and poor application/ service performance – Bad Network Interface Card/ Cable disconnected – Equivalent to device outage
  • 19. Server Performance Problems Network Interface bottlenecks#4 Use case
  • 20. Server Performance Problems Network Interface bottlenecks#4 What to look for: Network Performance counters – Received or Transmitted Bytes per sec – Bandwidth Utilization – Packets Received or Transmitted per sec Check Event Logs/ Syslogs Network Connectivity – Try replacing the cables/ NIC – Check the corresponding switch port performance
  • 21. Server Performance Problems Virtualization Management#5 Problems – Poor application consolidation - Over/ Under provisioning – Applications starve for resources – Unplanned outages or poor business service performance – Ad hoc virtual machine management & failure to identify security lapses – Complexity in managing both physical and virtual servers
  • 22. Server Performance Problems Virtualization Management#5 What to look for: Application consolidation – Total usage of CPU, Memory and Network has to be considered – Verify the nature of data and the security needed Virtual machines per host count – Syslog and regular virtual machines inventory checks Integrated common set of tools – For monitoring and managing both physical and virtual infrastructure
  • 23. ManageEngine OpManager Server Performance Management using OpManager
  • 24. ManageEngine OpManager Microsoft Applications Monitoring Exclusive dashboards, Out-of-the-box monitors, pre-configured thresholds for Exchange, SQL, Active Directory
  • 25. ManageEngine OpManager ESX VMware Monitoring Exclusive dashboards with Management options
  • 26. ManageEngine OpManager Other Infrastructure devices Monitoring Monitors load balancers, UPS, sensors, printers and any SNMP enabled device
  • 27. ManageEngine OpManager Event Log Monitoring, Syslog Monitoring and SNMP TRAP Processing
