At SL, we help middleware teams more effectively monitor their middleware platforms with an unmatched level of visibility into the performance and health of their systems that is seldom achieved with vendor-built, technology-specific management consoles.

 


Designed for Middleware

The IT technology landscape has changed forever with the advent of distributed, service-oriented middleware technologies. Yet, operations and application support teams struggle with the inherent difficulties of monitoring these environments. Middleware components are distributed, clustered and shared across multiple services and applications and provided by multiple vendors across multiple tiers. These monitoring challenges are further complicated by the fact that most middleware monitoring tools are limited to the vendor-specific management tools.



SL solves these problems using these core middleware monitoring capabilities:

See performance metrics from all your tools in one place


RTView® Enterprise Monitor™ taps into existing monitoring silos, where available, to maximize current investments while providing a single console so users don’t have to bounce between multiple disparate interfaces.  See TIBCO Hawk and Oracle Enterprise Manager.

Collect performance data with minimal performance overhead

An agentless approach to data collection means no additional performance overhead on your middleware applications and significantly reduces the maintenance costs across massively distributed middleware environments.

Forward looking, capacity analysis

Perform regular capacity analysis using historical performance data to ensure that you have enough resources available to support forecasted workload without wasteful over-provisioning.

See only the information you care about

Customize default views for different teams to see only the platforms you care about and eliminate alert overload.

Share middleware health and performance information with other support teams

RTView Enterprise Monitor provides a unique progressive drill-down interface, starting with top-level application health summaries, that drill-down to middleware technology layers and again down to individual instances – allowing front line support teams to quickly identify when and where to escalate support problems to the proper middleware operations teams.

Proactive, early warning system

The Key Metrics (KM)  feature is an entirely new way of looking at and interpreting application health and performance data.  In contrast to Alert Impact views, the Key Metrics view shows how quickly a metric is approaching its threshold over a period of time –BEFORE the alert threshold is reached – allowing you to proactively address performance trends BEFORE they impact user experience.

Centralized alert management

Alerts from multiple monitoring technologies can be consolidated into the RTView Enterprise Monitor alert console for easier management and can be easily prioritized based on the defined “criticality score” of the apps and services they support.

See if peripheral components are impacting your middleware platform

Middleware performance is often affected by other environmental components like physical hosts, virtual hosts, databases, message queues, app servers, etc…  RTView Enterprise Monitor provides contextual visibility into the other components connected to any middleware instance.  Allowing you to see if middleware problems are being caused by external factors.

Retroactive, root cause analysis

Root cause analysis is facilitated via historical data collection so you can replay performance metrics that precede health alerts and identify conditions leading up to performance failures. Useful for identifying trends, spikes and regularly recurring conditions.  View middleware performance in context with peripheral components over same time period to uncover causal relationships.

Distributed monitoring for distributed middleware deployments

RTView Enterprise Monitor employs a distributed architecture to ensure maximum performance and scalability.  Real-time data is cached locally and only the data that is needed is streamed to the monitoring console – minimizing network overhead.
