Storage monitoring in most organizations is a reactive practice. They are unaware of depleting storage and end up scrambling to buy more resources at the 11th hour. This is not good practice, especially given the repercussions of storage running out for critical network components. Forecasting is a useful tool which companies can leverage to plan spending on storage. Instead of completely ignoring storage capacities or overspending, they can perform storage capacity planning and save revenue while minimizing the chances of a crisis.
ManageEngine OpManager delivers an Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) powered storage forecasting tool that uses historical data to predict the storage usage for your network devices. OpManager's ML engine ingests data collected from your network, analyzes data points, and generates forecast trends in the form of reports, graphs and data visualizations. Essentially, you get storage monitoring and capacity forecasting on a single pane of glass.
Storage capacity details of your storage devices are stored over time. These data points are then used to predict the capacity consumption in the future. The data growth trend can be analyzed using this report and exact capacity predictions can be made for the future.
Forecasting storage capacity requirement is important. But it is equally important to plan your storage spending. This involves buying specific device drives to add capacity to your storage setup. Storage capacity forecast by utilization report gives you the exact dates, based on historical trends, when your devices will reach 80, 90 and 100% of their allocated storage. Planning your storage capacity purchases, just got more convenient.
It is important to be on top of your storage operations at all times. OpManager allows you to schedule alerts on capacity utilization. The alerts triggered can be seen on the 'Alarms' screen itself.
Also notification mails can be triggered by escalating alerts on breaching set capacity thresholds. This helps you to take timely actions and avoid system panics.
An automated capacity forecasting tool always helps you to stay a step ahead of your storage setup. By helping you schedule timely reports on capacity trends, OpManager helps you get frequent periodic updates about your storage capacity. This helps you to take control of your storage and effectively improves your storage capacity planning strategy.
Forecasting can be a beneficial tool when it comes to monitoring performance trends for your network devices. Device performance metrics like CPU utilization fluctuate frequently based on network activity which in turn can be correlated to business activities. Armed with historical data, OpManager can predict trends for performance metrics in the future and depict it in graphs, reports, and dashboard widgets. This allows you to be proactive with monitoring and prepare in advance for performance issues.
With OpManager's AI and ML tools at your disposal, you can complement your IT operations with accurate forecasts and predictions. OpManager delivers alert based, graph based, and report based insights into your past, present, and future resource utilization which you can leverage to take more informed decisions. With the repository of data you provide and OpManager's intelligent algorithms, your IT operations is made more secure and efficient. Be proactive with OpManager.
