Uptime Infrastructure Monitor
At a glance: unified monitoring
Uptime Infrastructure Monitor is an enterprise tool that provides a unified view for IT-systems monitoring.
Through proactive, comprehensive and integrated monitoring and reporting, Uptime Infrastructure Monitor gives complete visibility and control over theavailability, performance and capacity of your IT environment, from applications, to servers and virtual machines, to network devices.
Although comprehensive and scalable, Uptime Infrastructure Monitor is also easy to use, and can be deployed in minutes.
Take advantage of dedicated service monitors and metrics for database management and application servers including MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server, Exchange, WebLogic and WebSphere.
Record your own web transactions without scripting. Add checkpoints to defi ne a complex, multi-stage user experience that can then be measured and reported.
Easily defi ne your business applications by assembling a variety of service monitors that represent all of your organization’s functions.
Network Performance Monitoring
Collect performance and confi guration data from all of your networking hardware including routers, switches, fi rewalls, and SAN infrastructure. Alert based on port status, throughput or counts, and SNMP-based metrics. Integrate with thirdparty tools such as Plixer’s Scrutinizer to perform detailed NetFlow analysis.
Physical Performance Monitoring
Monitor a wide variety of performance, resource and system-health metrics—right down to the process level—across all platforms.
Use real-time graphing, as well as historical performance and trending reports, to assist with diagnosis or resource planning. Alternatively, use effi ciency reports to make better use of your existing resources by identifying virtualization candidates.
Virtualization Performance Monitoring
Monitor your entire virtual stack, including applications, clusters and hosts, resource pools, virtual networks and storage. Analyze workloads for the entire virtual datacenter. Determine underused or abandoned VMs, and track VM net growth and sprawl. Customize your monitored virtual inventory: choose the VMs you want, promote VMs for more detailed monitoring, save historical data of deleted VMs.
Tightly integrate with VMware vSphere for seamless monitoring and reporting for your virtual servers. Auto-discover your entire VMware vCenter inventory, and automatically mirror confi guration and inventory changes with vSync
Comprehensive, Proactive Reports
Easily create reports for all tiers of your IT environment, and proactively manage IT resources and deployment. Use collected data to base your decisions on facts: spot trends, identify ineffi ciencies, troubleshoot, gain insight.
Generate availability and SLA reports that demonstrate success in fulfilling expectations of IT.
Customizable dashboards – Use the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor API to access status information for all service monitors and monitored elements. Display this information in custom gadgets, whether customized or out of the box. Administrators and business users alike can assemble dashboards with an easy-to-use interface.
Simplify deployment and inventory updates. The auto-discovery process scans your network for devices and systems, without requiring you to know every IP address. It also detects and syncs entire VMware vCenter Server inventories.
Alerts and escalation policies
Alert based on any combination of performance states. Contact the correct administrators only when outages aren’t addressed in the prescribed time.
Self-healing actions – Confi gure servers to automatically react to failure conditions with scripted actions before contacting administrators.
Modular user defi nitions by role and group allow you to provide access for every part of the business. AD or LDAP integration eliminate redundancy and setup time.
Maintenance on demand
In addition to scheduling downtime, instantly place a monitored element, or entire groups, in maintenance, to accommodate ad-hoc fi xes.
VM power-state monitoring
Ensure mission-critical virtual resources are always running, but avoid unnecessary alerts when others shut down.
Focus on the real issues. Elements check “up” when experiencing problems to verify the source; conversely they won’t cause redundant alerts with topological dependencies.
