Exciting news - today we are announcing the next beta program for the on-premises offerings of the IBM Performance Management portfolio.
The portfolio is composed of IBM Monitoring (application-aware infrastructure monitoring), IBM Application Performance Management (resource, end user, transactions tracking of application environments), IBM Application Diagnostics (deep dive diagnostics) and IBM Application Performance Management Advanced (the most complete APM solution for your application environment).
The beta includes the following capabilities:
- IBM MQ added to our transaction tracking support for the IBM Middleware Integration stack
- IBM Integration Bus (IIB) added to our transaction tracking support for the IBM Middleware Integration stack
- IBM APM administrators will be able to reliably manage information related to role based access control (RBAC) for the IBM APM product
- IBM APM Administrator will be able to generate an Audit Trail containing details of users who modified permissions. The audit trail is useful for internal Security Controls and possibly Regulatory Compliance purposes
- Enhanced performance and reduced resource utilization of the data collectors used by IBM APM.
- Focus on Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) application environments. The IBM APM transactions tracking capabilities allow an ESB owner to monitor the end-to-end transaction performance of services running on the ESB platform. There is a single install and configuration process for each middleware component.
- Additional DB2 monitoring dashboards, providing visibility into the status of DB2 resources, such as buffer pool, sort, database, and application locks.
- Support for resource level monitoring - health, network, and performance of Cisco UCS
- Support for resource level monitoring of Microsoft Cluster Server environments – with details about the cluster and individual servers
- IT Operations gain resource monitoring for additional open source Operating Systems – Scientific Linux, Debian, and CentOS.
