Why is consolidating performance metrics from different OSs difficult?

Your Challenges

  • Diversity of operating system versions and types can make it difficult to standardize on a single monitoring platform, particularly if it’s vendor provided.
  • Certain operating systems weren’t designed to provide custom or even native metrics, nor monitoring integration.
  • Agentless monitoring may be recquired in certain operating environments.
  • Consolidating statistics across many OS instances for capacity planning purposes can be daunting.
  • Extending many systems to collect data from disparate, but officially supported and required tools.

Your Needs

  • Monitoring that covers Windows Server, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Suse Enterprise Linux, Ubuntu Linux, Debian Linux and Centos Linux, AIX, and potentially z/Linux, as well.
  • Extensible monitoring with a rich, well-documented API to integrate with your existing operating system management and monitoring infrastructure.
  • Consolidated view of operating system metrics across all platforms, not just a single OS type.
  • Independence from operating system vendor supplied tools, providing a higher-level view and a single pane of glass.
  • Consistent and standard alerting and notification with high value filters easily applied.
