SmartCloud Application Performance Management: Entry Edition
SmartCloud Application Performance Management Entry Edition Virtual Machine (VM) images provide a quick and easy solution for customers with moderately sized environments to install and configure the application monitoring and management infrastructure. The solution is composed of two VM images: One comprising the IBM Tivoli Monitoring (ITM) management server components, and the other containing the Tivoli Data Warehouse, Tivoli Common Reporting (Cognos) and APM user interface components. Upon deployment and start of the two VM images into the VMware vSphere environment, all of the required infrastructure components will be configured and running, automatically.
