Description
IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Web Infrastructure can help you meet your objective of increasing the availability of your Web infrastructure resources and take actions to avert or alert you to potential problems with the performance of those resources. IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Web Infrastructure V5.1.2 adds support for WebSphere Application Server V5.0, and includes new Resource Models that take advantage of new performance metrics included in V5.0. IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Web Infrastructure can help you:

Monitor the status of WebSphere Web servers and Web application servers - Provides realtime status on the availability and performance of Web servers and Web application servers through IBM best-practices monitoring of key Web infrastructure components.

Notify administrators and take automated actions - Out-of-the-box identification of common Web infrastructure problems notifies administrators of potential issues and automates actions to help implement fixes before problems affect end users.

Beyond monitoring - Collects monitoring data for use in historical reporting, performance analysis, trend prediction, and enterprise-wide business impact analysis.

Because it leverages the base IBM Tivoli Monitoring product, Tivoli Monitoring for Web Infrastructure has several capabilities that make it flexible, efficient, and easy to use including:

Integrated monitoring of various hardware, software and applications - Allows administrators to view the application and system environment with a single Web-accessible interface and perform administrative tasks from virtually any location.

Local correlation through IBM best practices - Can enable problem determination and cure capability at the resource level, letting you focus on more serious problems that affect multiple systems and users. With default thresholds and checking for problem persistence, the best practices require minimal configuration which can help deliver rapid time to value, out-of-the-box.

Consistent data capture and reporting for further business impact management - Provides a central data warehouse for enterprise systems management metrics, designed to provide thorough and consistent analysis of historical patterns and trends to help enable pertinent and proactive management of your environment. Whether you need to access data for service-level management, capacity planning, chargeback capability, or business context-specific management capabilities, the data resides in one central, easy-to-access repository.
