Data center performance management - a synergy of server performance (both physical & virtual), application performance, and sufficient bandwidth, is a great challenge. The challenge rises multifold when disparate / less-efficient data center monitoring tools are used.
Whenever an end user reports slow access to an application, the issue could be with the server or bandwidth or application itself. To find out the exact issue you have to poke your head into multiple monitors and look out every nook and corner, right from server performance to bandwidth bottlenecks to application performance. You will not find any correlation between the data provided by the tools. By the time you organize the data and hunt down the issue, the application would have gone down completely.
ManageEngine OpManager is a network management cum data center management software offering an integrated approach towards data center monitoring. It helps you proactively monitor physical & virtual servers, applications and bandwidth to the core; yet manage their faults from a single console. OpManager offers a single alarm console where all the issues irrespective of the type whether it is an application, server or bandwidth, are raised. This makes it easy for the technicians to pick up the alarms in real-time, drill down to the exact issue and start troubleshooting it before the end user feels the impact and thus greatly improving the efficiency of the data center management process.
OpManager out-of-the-box includes support for the widely used servers such as Windows, Linux, Solaris, VMware, Hyper-V, and much more. It offers dedicated dashboards for the worst performing Hosts and VMs that need immediate attention, which helps in making data center performance monitoring much more efficient. More.
OpManager monitors the performance of mission critical applications such as Oracle, JBoss, Tomcat, WebLogic, WebSphere, SilverStream, GlassFish, and much more by integrating ManageEngine Applications Manager. You can customize the tabs and load Applications Manager's web client in OpManager web client.
OpManager's NetFlow Plug-in leverages flow-based network traffic analysis to show you how exactly your bandwidth is being utilized through interface - specific reports on which user, application, source, destination, conversation, etc. is occupying bandwidth. More.
Temperature is also a very critical parameter in datacenter monitoring. OpManager monitors temperature of servers and routers. You can configure thresholds and monitor them proactively.
