  4. 4. SIMPLIFY NETWORK AND APPLICATION MANAGEMENTISM Enterprise Comprehensive Support for Physical and Virtual Infrastructures ISM Enterprise is architected as an integrated management platform, so there is no need for extra plug-ins or modules. It provides out-of- the-box support for a very wide range of technologies, and it is highly adaptable to support new and unique technologies. ISM monitors detailed heath metrics on a wide range of server configurations, and it provides in-depth monitoring of Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware environments and their associated virtual machines (VM). The performance and availability metrics include hosts, VM’s resource pools, etc. In addition, ISM supports the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS), allowing the discovery of blade servers, virtual switches, fiber channel and Ethernet interfaces, and environmental components, including power, current, voltage, temperature, etc. Server Configuration Monitored OS and Virtualization Software Server Health Metrics Web, Directory, Email, Database, Windows, Linux, ESX/vSphere, Hyper-V, CPU, Memory and Disk Utilization, Processes, Applications, File/Print, Terminal, AIX, HP UX, Solaris, i5/OS (AS/400) Services, File System, Network Interface, Virtual, Blade, Clustered, FTP Print Queues, Message Logs, Statistics, Performance Counters, and Batch Jobs ServicePilot ISM includes SNMP level 3 monitoring, and the standard agents in ISM Enterprise can monitor devices and services by using WMI, SQL Requests, and Log Parsing. As a result, ISM Enterprise can support SAN/NAS and other storage devices as well as servers and network infrastructure. ISM agents can monitor web server logs (IIS and W3C format), so they provide in-depth support for Microsoft IIS and other web servers, such as Apache. They supervise the availability and response time of a web server and collect data from a specific URL to monitor a wide range of checkpoints and counters. Application, Directory and Database Support You can quickly isolate performance problems with business-critical applications, such as email, directories and databases – before they affect your end users. ISM monitors all Microsoft Exchange server resources and services as well as Active Directory server availability and response time, and replication. It ensures Lotus Domino database integrity and availability, client-to-server connectivity, and the end-user service levels of Lotus Notes applications. Oracle, Microsoft SQL, Microsoft Access database servers as well as generic databases with an ODBC connection and Excel are monitored. A wide array of availability and performance metrics for SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL and PostgreSQL are collected via pertinent requests in the ISM agent which feed the integrated packages. Performance is monitored from the end-users perspective (monitoring response times for defined SQL queries) and a server perspective (monitoring database server integrity). All database status data is collected for real-time alert generation and performance reporting, and leveraged for SLA creation, monitoring, and compliance reporting. Support for Multi-Vendor VoIP and UC Configurations VoIP is a key component of Unified Communications (UC). UC must offer the reliability, interoperability and security of a voice network, and the efficiency, mobility and manageability of a data network. ServicePilot ISM provides real- time and comprehensive call performance monitoring and reporting for Cisco, Alcatel-Lucent, Avaya and Aastra. It can seamlessly monitor heterogeneous voice infrastructures to simplify the process of implementing and supporting VoIP while simultaneously providing IP data infrastructure and telephony over IP service management. 3 Voice Performance Reports
  5. 5. SIMPLIFY NETWORK AND APPLICATION MANAGEMENTISM Enterprise ISM Enterprise analyzes voice communication quality through call and QoS ticket collection, and it can detect incidents over a multi-vendor VoIP infrastructure. End-user voice quality monitoring is based on the collection of call detail records (CDR). The distribution of call quality is based on jitter, latency, lost packets and MOS. ISM Enterprise can generate alarms on degraded calls, build dashboards on activity of telephony applications, anticipate evolutions, and produce SLA reports on call quality. ISM enables quality assurance and the integration of the Cisco IP SLA Jitter MOS test. Role-based reports are available, and you can customize your reports using templates or create them from scratch. Powerful, Adaptable, Simple and Secure ServicePilot ISM Enterprise is highly scalable, easy to use, and secure. A base configuration starts at 150 objects. The ISM architecture is very efficient, so you can minimize complexity as you grow. To increase the number of devices, interfaces and/or applications being monitored, you simply add objects according to your current requirements. You can support up to 100,000 objects using a single system. Additional licenses can be added to support larger configurations, so there is no limit to the number of objects that can be supported. This eliminates the need to manage multiple tools or consoles, as you expand support. Support for each technology is implemented as a package, a value-added integration to build a complete configuration. It defines the mapping representation, thresholds and pre-configured reporting. Packages are provided as templates, and they can be customized according to your requirements during installation. Many environments have unique subsystems and configurations, so a variety of different methods are required for discovering elements, collecting data and monitoring. If additional support is required, a user can create their own custom technology package for advanced integration of any script results. With only a few mouse clicks, ISM Enterprise is configured for the supervision of different technologies, and the results of scripts are integrated via a customizable API that enables ISM to collect any script results. Simple and complex indicator reports are easily created for all objects, classes, devices, views and networks. Security parameters can be established by user and by group to isolate who has access to specific information and reports. The isolated data collection and the ability to customize views enable you to offer end-users with unique and secure reporting. Users require access to critical databases and applications for vital business functions to support daily operations and continuity. This requires conformity with other parameters, such as data center security standards, integration with directories and composite applications, and support for dynamic virtualized infrastructure components. Therefore, end-to-end application performance monitoring requires a solution able to support flow collection and analysis, application response time analysis, traffic simulation, and business views and SLA calculations per application. Fault Management Operations teams need an end-to-end view of real and virtual infrastructures as well as applications, so they can readily see the impact of component degradation on a site or a service. ISM Enterprise discovers the topology, inventories all of the network devices and components, so it can establish a complete map of the network. It efficiently monitors the environment providing the correlated alerts and facilitating rapid root cause analysis. The information can be displayed in standard or customizable dashboards and reports. ServicePilot ISM also offers business service management capabilities that put IT infrastructure performance insights into a business context, so you can understand the impact of infrastructure problems and performance degradation on an organization. You can build a wide range of views and impact matrices to gain a better understanding of the real and virtual infrastructure that supports the delivery of applications and services. ISM’s Impact Matrix View of real time service delivery quickly identifies the downstream effect on end-users when there’s a problem. This enables operations teams and service providers to offer insight into the impact of availability and performance issues on Example of a customized dashboard, including technical and geographic views service levels. 4
