    • ITM  Agent  for  Citrix®  XenServer™  Agent  Highlights   •  Deep  IBM  Tivoli  Monitoring  (ITM)  based  monitoring  and  management  of   Citrix®  XenServer™  virtualiza7on  environments   •  Provides  visibility  into  the  Opera7onal  Health  of  XenServer™  Pools,   Hypervisors,  and  Virtual  Machines   •  When  used  in  conjunc7on  with  ITM  Opera7ng  System  Agents,  provides   industry  leading  visibility  into  XenServer™  virtualiza7on  environments   from  the  Hypervisor  all  the  way  down  to  the  Opera7ng  System  running   within  a  XenServer™-­‐based  Virtual  Machine   •  IBM  Cer7fied     Ready  for  IBM®  Tivoli®   •  “Citrix  Ready”  Cer7fied  by  Citrix®     Cer7fied  with  Citrix®  XenServer™  5.5  &  5.6  
    • Major  Features   •  InnovaIve  “Follow  the  Master”  capability  –  Agent  detects  Pool  Master  outages  and   determines  the  new  Pool  Master,  switches  monitoring  to  the  new  Pool  Master,  and   con7nues  monitoring  the  Pool  without  missing  a  beat   •  XenServer™  Dashboard  Status  –  Tivoli®  Enterprise  Portal  (TEP)-­‐based  “one  stop  shop”   allows  administrators  to  easily  determine  the  overall  health  and  status  of  XenServer™   Pools,  Hosts,  and  Virtual  Machines   •  Availability  Monitoring  –  Real-­‐7me  monitoring  and  aler7ng  of  Host  and  VM  availability   •  SituaIons  –  Rich  set  of  ITM  “Situa7ons”  allows  administrators  to  quickly  and  efficiently   isolate  impending  or  exis7ng  cri7cal  errors  in  their  XenServer™  environment   •  Secure  Monitoring  –  Agent  can  be  configured  to  connect  using  SSL  and  supports   op7onal  SSL  Cer7ficate  valida7on  
    • Consistency  With  Exis7ng  ITM  Infrastructure     ITM  Agent  for  Citrix®  XenServer™  has  been  designed  from  the  ground  up  to  look,  feel,   and  operate  like  IBM®-­‐developed  ITM  agents  in  terms  of  ITM  remote  deployment,   manageability  via  ITM  command-­‐line  u7li7es,  installa7on,  and  configura7on  
    • 1st  Class  Ci7zen  of  the  Tivoli®  Monitoring  Ecosystem   ITM  Agent  for  Citrix®   XenServer™  operates   as  a  first-­‐class  ciIzen   of  the  ITM  ecosystem   Agent  leverages  ITM’s   Tivoli®  Enterprise  Portal   (TEP)  visualizaIon   capabiliIes  to  include   expert  advice,  customized   workspaces,  and   historical  data  gathering

    • Focus  Areas  –    XenServer™  Agent  for  ITM   Citrix®  XenServer™  Agent  for  ITM  answers  these  quesIons  and  more:   –  What  is  the  availability  of  our  XenServer™  Pools,  Hosts,  and  VMs?   –  What  is  the  CPU,  Memory,  Disk,  and  Network  u7liza7on  of  my  XenServer™  Hosts?   –  What  is  the  CPU,  Memory,  Disk,  and  Network  u7liza7on  of  my  XenServer™  VMs?   –  What  is  the  U7liza7on,  Freespace,  and  Total  Size  of  my  Storage  Repositories?   –  When  are  XenServer™  Pool  Master  Transi7ons  occurring?   –  Which  VMs  don’t  have  Up-­‐to-­‐Date  versions  of  XenTools™  running?   –  When  are  the  XenServer™  Licenses  going  to  Expire?  
    • Dashboards  for  Viewing  Enterprise  XenServer™  Health            XenServer™  Hypervisor  Dashboard   –   Example  (below)  aggregates  5  XenServer™  Hypervisors  from  3  dis7nct  XenServer™  Pools
