Quickly resolve server performance problems

OpManager monitors over 300 server performance metrics including CPU utilization, partition-wise disk space and memory utilization, apart from monitoring server availability and response times. Advanced alerting that can even log a trouble ticket into an integrated helpdesk system ensures that you identify potential problems much before users could get affected.

You can remotely troubleshoot server faults using OpManager s server diagnostic tools. Once you are alerted on a problem, within a single click from the monitoring dashboard, you can immediately view real time performance trends of the problem server, investigate and even stop services or processes that cause the performance degradation.

Monitor application performance

When it comes to business-ritical applications, you don t want to leave any stone unturned. OpManager monitors services, processes and Windows services, with most of the discovery and monitoring done out of the box. OpManager can even detect attempted security break ins over your application servers (log in failures due to bad passwords, account lock outs, failed attempts to access secure files, etc.) by processing Windows Event logs syslog monitoring .

Monitor VMware ESX servers and Guest OS performance

OpManager provides an exclusive monitoring dashboard for each ESX server, showing the CPU, memory and disk utilization for each of the guest VM instances on the ESX server. OpManager also provides options to Start, Stop and Suspend the VM instances on the ESX server. So now you can get alerted on VMs using excessive resources and even remotely stop the VMs before they cause problems in the ESX server.

Monitor Exchange server performance

OpManager goes beyond just monitoring SMTP, POP and IMAP on your Exchange servers to monitor over 15 key services and 50 critical variables that include Public Store, Private Store, Received or Sent Queue Size, etc. All this, over a specially crafted Exchange monitoring dashboard that automatically assigns performance monitors and pre configured thresholds depending on whether the servers are Exchange 2000, 2003 or 2005.

Troubleshoot SQL Server DB performance issues

When troubleshooting database performance you will need to know whether there exists a server resource problem or a problem due to slow running queries or too many connections. OpManager helps you quickly troubleshoot issues by providing over a single console, reports on CPU, memory and disk utilization as well as details on database size, buffer cache performance, log files, connections, transactions, Locks trend etc..

Monitor MS Active Directory

OpManager discovers all your Domain Controllers and assigns industry standard thresholds to over 35 Active Directory monitors covering Performance Counters, LDAP, LSASS NTFRS processes, Replication Traffic Objects etc. apart from monitoring availability and response times of key Active Directory services.

Know how your IT SLAs are being impacted and take corrective action

You can group devices according to the service they facilitate and ensure that for each business service, your SLAs are being met. OpManager alerts for falling SLAs and from the intuitive business service maps you can drill down and troubleshoot problem devices to quickly restore SLAs.

Plan for IT Capacity in your data centers

Through over 100 out of the box network performance reports on server availability, resource utilization, fault events etc. OpManager provides ready to use information for your next capacity addition. What s more, you can create your own customized reports. e.g. an end of day report on the availability response times of all the servers in the Datacenter, and have these automatically sent to your mailbox everyday.
