Many networks across business verticals use IBM devices. IBM's share of 23 percent of HTTP server domains paints a clear picture of the company's stature in the marketplace. A substantial amount of business-critical functions depend on the availability and up time of services on IBM servers, IBM storage utilization, and the smooth functioning of other IBM network devices.
Outages and unanticipated downtime of IBM devices could severely cripple operations and impact revenue profoundly. Making IBM monitoring a part of your routine and incorporating a dedicated IBM monitoring tool could help you avoid operational disasters.
IBM appliances, or any other appliances for that matter, are susceptible to performance degradation from both external and internal factors; they will malfunction at some point. Without an IBM monitor, predicting anomalies and measuring the extent of damage is difficult.
Obstacles faced without IBM monitoring tools in place:
