Application-aware Network Performance Management with OpManager

  1. 1.    
  2. 2. Traditional  IT  –  No  longer  a  fit  today  Traditional  IT  management  practices  are  no  fit  for  today’s  modern  day  businesses  that  are  powered  by  cloud  and  datacenters.  Now,  IT  is  more  dynamic  and  provisioned  quickly  with  technologies  such  as  virtualization  and  elastic  computing.  That  says,  IT  is  not  confined  within  the  office  and  extends  to  all  across  the  globe.  With  more  and  more  applications  being  served  over  the  cloud  from  all  around  the  world,  it  is  imperative  for  you  to  ensure  seamless  access  to  mission  critical  applications  and  provide  a  good  end-­‐user  experience.        To  provide  an  uninterrupted  access  to  mission  critical  applications  and  the  best  user-­‐experience  networks  and  applications  should  no  longer  be  managed  as  discrete  entities.  The  problem  with  such  a  model  is  that  all  the  performance  data  and  events  remain  separate,  and  needs  lot  of  manual  effort  to  correlate  them  to  get  a  clear  picture.  By  the  time  you  trace  the  fault  and  fix  it,  users  would  have  started  to  receive  a  404  error.    Causes  for  slowness  or  loss  of  access  to  an  application  • Recent  configuration  change  done  at  the  core  router  • Server  system  resource  scarcity  • Switch  port  may  be  down  • Bandwidth  bottlenecks  • Problem  with  the  ISP’s  WAN  links  • Application  itself  might  have  crashed  
  3. 3. Correlation  of  App  &  Network  performance  data  is  the  key  to  identify  where  the  fault  is  The  critical  part  in  delivering  an  application  seamlessly  lies  in  identifying  where  the  fault  is.    The  sooner  you  identify  the  fault,  the  faster  you  can  fix  it.  Disparate  tools  help  you  know  the  performance  of  network  and  applications  in  silos.  There  would  be  no  correlation  between  them.  It  requires  a  lot  of  manual  effort  to  analyze  various  reports  and  come  to  an  assumption  where  the  fault  would  be.      Monitoring  Applications  from  a  network  perspective  (a.k.a  Application-­‐aware  Network  Performance  Management)  provides  the  correlation  between  application  and  network  performance  data.  It  provides  in-­‐depth  visibility  into  the  impact  caused  by  the  applications  on  your  network  and  vice  versa,  and  helps  you  identify  where  the  fault  is  exactly.  OpManager  provides  the  required  correlation  between  App  &  Network  performance  data  OpManager  now  includes  in-­‐depth  application  monitoring  capabilities  into  its  existing  portfolio.  This  helps  you  also  monitor  your  mission  critical  applications  such  as  Oracle,  SAP,  Sharepoint,  Webshpere,  etc.  along  with  your  network  and  servers  from  a  single  console.      
  4. 4. Being  a  comprehensive  network  management  software,  OpManager,  with  the  newly  added  application  monitoring  functions,  provides  application-­‐aware  network  performance  management.  In  case  of  any  application  slowness  or  loss  of  access  to  an  application,  OpManager  provides  the  required  visibility  into  Network,  Server  and  Application  levels.  It  allows  you  drill  down  from  the  end-­‐user  experience  level  to  the  network  level  to  find  out  where  the  fault  is  in  a  quick  and  easy  way.        What  does  OpManager  now  provide  with  the  newly  added  Application  Monitoring  plugin?  In-­‐depth  Application  Monitoring    Network  Performance  Monitoring  Configuration  Management  Traffic  Analysis  Physical  &  Virtual  Server  Performance  Monitoring  Hardware  health  monitoring  In-­‐depth  application  server  monitoring  Database  monitoring  Cloud  monitoring  Middleware/portal  monitoring  Monitor  end-­‐user  experience  from  multiple  locations  Monitor  web  applications,  website  look  up  times,  RTT,  etc.  
  5. 5. Real-­‐time  End-­‐user  Experience  Monitoring    Single  Dashboard  for  viewing  the  Performance  health  of  Network  &  Application  in  real-­‐time      Singe  alarm  console  for  Network,  Server  &  Application  faults        
  6. 6. Device  snapshot  page  with  System  and  Application  Performance  Data.        About  OpManager  ManageEngine  OpManager  is  a  network  management  platform  that  helps  large  enterprises,  service  providers  and  SMEs  manage  their  data  centers  and  IT  infrastructure  efficiently  and  cost  effectively.  Automated  workflows,  intelligent  alerting  engines,  configurable  discovery  rules,  and  extendable  templates  enable  IT  teams  to  quickly  setup  a  24x7  monitoring  system  within  hours  of  installation.  Do-­‐it-­‐yourself  plug-­‐ins  extend  the  scope  of  management  to  include  network  change  and  configuration  management  and  IP  address  management  as  well  as  monitoring  of  networks,  applications,  databases,  virtualization  and  NetFlow-­‐based  bandwidth.  For  more  information  on  ManageEngine  OpManager,  please  visit  http://www.manageengine.com/opmanager.    To  download  a  free  30-­‐day  trial,  visit:  http://www.manageengine.com/network-­‐monitoring/download.html
