IBM Tivoli Monitoring monitors and manages system and network applications on a variety of platforms and keeps track of the availability and performance of all parts of your enterprise. IBM Tivoli Monitoring provides reports you can use to track trends and troubleshoot problems. You can use IBM Tivoli Monitoring to perform. the following tasks: v Visualize real-time monitoring data from your environment v Monitor resources in your environment for certain conditions, such as high CPU or an unavailable application v Establish performance thresholds and raise alerts when thresholds are exceeded or values are matched v Trace the causes leading up to an alert v Create and send commands to systems in your managed enterprise by means of the Take Action feature v Use integrating reporting to create comprehensive reports about system conditions v Monitor conditions of particular interest by defining custom queries using the attributes from an installed agent or from an ODBC-compliant data sourceWhat’s new in this release The following features have been added to IBM Tivoli Monitoring: v Easy to use, highly customizable Tivoli Enterprise Portal: The Tivoli Enterprise Portal displays information through the use of workspaces in the form. of charts and tables. You can start monitoring activity and system status immediately with the predefined workspaces. With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can tailor workspaces to look at specific conditions, display critical threshold values in red, and filter incoming data so you see only what matters. You can also change the hierarchical order in which agents are displayed, enabling you to customize the hierarchy as is appropriate for your business. See the IBM Tivoli Monitoring User's Guide for information. v Integration of multiple monitoring sources in one view: Using the Tivoli Enterprise Portal, you can view monitoring data for your z/OS resources and the applications monitored by the IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Response Time Tracking and IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for WebSphere® products, in addition to the data collected by the IBM Tivoli Monitoring agents. v Support for a Linux Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server and Tivoli Enterprise Portal desktop client: Both Linux for Intel® and 31-bit Linux for z/OS are now supported operating systems for the Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server; and Linux for Intel is supported for the desktop client. This Linux support is a change from OMEGAMON V350. v Easy to use Tivoli Data Warehouse with granular historical data rollup: The new Tivoli Data Warehouse enables you to enable and disable history collection for different components and attribute groups, define the periodic time period to save data, define how you want to summarize your historical data, and define how and when you want to prune your historical and detailed data, all throughthe Tivoli Enterprise Portal. For information about the Tivoli Data Warehouse, see Chapter 11, “Configuring the Warehouse Proxy for the Tivoli Data Warehouse,” on page 145. v Integrated Warehouse reporting: You can view historical data, using the same workspaces as real-time monitoring, through the Tivoli Enterprise Portal, instead of needing to generate a report through a database reporting program, such as Crystal Reports. v Support for IBM DB2®, Oracle, and Microsoft® SQL warehouse databases: Support for additional databases removes the inconvenience of needing one brand of database for your monitoring environment and a different brand for other applications. v IBM Tivoli Enterprise Console® integration: You can view IBM Tivoli Enterprise Console events through the Tivoli Enterprise Portal using the Tivoli Enterprise Console event console. You can also configure your monitoring server to forward events from IBM Tivoli Monitoring situations to the Tivoli Enterprise Console event server (referred to as the event server) and install the Tivoli Enterprise Console event synchronization component on the event server to send situation event updates back to the monitoring server. In this way, updates made to the situation events based on Tivoli Enterprise Console rules and operator actions on the event server are reflected in both the Situation Event Console and the Tivoli Enterprise Console event view. See Chapter 6, “Installing the IBM Tivoli Enterprise Console event synchronization,” on page 85 for information about installing the event synchronization component. Managing situation events on the event server enables you to take advantage of the event management and automation that the Tivoli Enterprise Console product provides. For more information about the integration with Tivoli Enterprise Console, see “Tivoli Enterprise Console event synchronization component” on page 6. The Tivoli Enterprise Portal also contains a Situation Event Console that displays IBM Tivoli Monitoring events triggered by the situations you are monitoring. If you do not need the enterprise event management capabilities provided by Tivoli Enterprise Console, you can use this integrated event viewer to manage your events. v Failover support for the Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server: The Hot Standby feature enables you to maintain failover support for your hub monitoring server by defining a standby monitoring server to act as backup. See “Configuring failover support” on page 110 for more information. v Lightweight agents: Because the required infrastructure for IBM Tivoli Monitoring agents is itself small, IBM Tivoli Monitoring agents use considerably less CPU and memory than previous IBM Tivoli Monitoring component products. v Agentless monitoring with the Universal Agent: The Universal Agent is a generic agent of IBM Tivoli Monitoring that you can configure to monitor any data you collect. You can view that data in real-time and historical workspaces on the Tivoli Enterprise Portal and manage the data with situations and automation policies, the same as data from other Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Agents. v Administration through the command line: A new set of commands (tacmd option) has been added so that you can administer your environment from the command line (both Windows and UNIX). See Appendix E, “Command reference,” on page 187 for more information about these commands. v SOAP and SQL interfaces to data: You can create SOAP and SQL scripts to perform. actions on the data in your environment.Remote agent deployment: You can now deploy monitoring agents across your environment from a central location. You can also deploy maintenance to agents, perform. agent configuration, and start and stop agents. See Chapter 10, “Deploying monitoring across your environment,” on page 135 for details about deploying agents. v Increased security: IBM Tivoli Monitoring enables Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for communication between components. For information about using SSL, see “Using SSL between the portal server and the client” .
