As part of the IBM Solution Health Initiative, customers with licenses for any of the TPAE products like Maximo, CCMDB and TSRM are entitled to download a suite of tools from IBM Tivoli Monitoring (ITM) to help monitor the health of the system. Many clients have asked for implementation guidance and best practices. The following slides and white paper provide information on what you might want to monitor related to Maximo and why.
As my dad used to say, anyone can swallow an elephant – as long as they do it one bite at a time. In the beginning, installing ITM can seem a bit like swallowing an elephant. You don’t need to do everything at once – start with what will give your company the most value. First you need to have the ITM server installed. The Maximo agent is also pretty simple so you may want to put that in. If you suspect database or app server issues, deploy those tools next. It is OK to start with the default settings and customize things like thresholds, situations, actions and other settings over time as you discover more about your environment. This white paper and presentation should help you understand the tools to make these decisions.
