This solution is installed using the IBM Installation Manager. The installation uses the IBM SmartCloud Provisioning PXE server to automatically configure and deploy the necessary monitoring agents to the entire SmartCloud Provisioning infrastructure. Any future machines added to the infrastructure will automatically include the appropriate monitoring agents.
Once installed, this solution will add to the Tivoli® Enterprise Portal, provided by IBM SmartCloud Monitoring, a new custom navigator which provides a logical view of your SmartCloud Monitoring infrastructure. For each grouping in this navigator view there is a pre-built, customizable Workspace to provide information relevant to the selected SmartCloud Provisioning component.
This solution also provides sixteen new monitoring situations, or threshold configurations, to provide alerts for common issues that could affect the availability of your IBM SmartCloud Provisioning environment. In addition, Version 2.1 also includes support for IBM Virtual Image Library and IBM Workload Deployer.
